My memories of Pete go way back to my pre-teen years. He was quiet and always carefully observed each situation. But man, when he spoke, he delivered a unique and/or funny perspective! In recent years and visits back to Rhode Island, I truly appreciated the conversations we shared with my wife and cousin Linda. Perhaps his greatest trait, Pete always had a way of making you feel important! He will be missed, RIP! Frankie
