To the Gentile family,sorry to hear about your loss. He was an enjoyable person to be around. I knew him from the St. Adalbert neighborhood and had an opportunity to visit with him at his home on the Hill, about twenty years ago. I witnessed a genuine, kind and
sincere man. You are in our prayers.

To the whole Gentile Family, When I was a kid, my dad, Ed Huneke Sr., would introduce me to Pete Gentile if they happened to see each other at a soccer game. They'd always laugh about how they had to run all the time when they went to Beaumont High together because nobody had a car. My dad always said Pete was a great guy. You'll see him again someday. -Denny Huneke, Florissant, Mo.

To the whole Gentile Family, My dad, Ed Huneke Sr., went to Beaumont H.S. class of '37 with Pete When I was a kid my dad would see him someplace, like a soccer game, and they would laugh about how they used to run all the time when they were in high school because, like most people, they didn't have a car. My dad always said that Pete was a great guy. You'll see him again someday. -Denny Huneke, Florissant, Mo.
