My memories of Mr. Pete include birthday parties, my kids and Amy’s, swimming at the pool (Pete loved the neighborhood pool), football games, annual gingerbread house contests, holidays, and sometimes gathering to have the best fajitas in town (aka Mr. Frank’s). Besides loving his wife of 50 years, Pete loved his daughters and his grandchildren. He helped care for and taxi the girls around. He often dropped by sweet treats for my boys, too! He was a loving husband and father, grandfather, and friend. We will miss him! We were blessed to know him all our years in Leander.
