Pete was one of those people who always had a smile for you and would make your day better. I worked with Pete for 25 plus years at Nobel/Sysco and he was a joy to be around. In our years after retirement we would hang out together for lunch or to go to a movie, and was always fun to be around. I will miss you old friend!
Thanks for being my friend all these years!

I am very sorry I missed being at his funeral. Take care I know you and your family will miss him very much.
My sincere condolance David Stallsworth
