With the many memories of Pete (aka Cripple)
Sitting out in front of the garage with his cats ,
Or blowing off the driveway. it's hard to pick out just one.
Over the past years I had grown very fond of or friendship. And I will truly miss him. And the many conversations laughs we had.

Charlotte and family
I will always remember Pete as my first Manager in the retail world. He was professional and distinguished, yet fun and cool. He was always dressed to impress, and taught me so much about being a Manager. He along with Kyle Hodgeson and Doris Anthony were a great team to work with, back in the 80's.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. He will be missed!

With Deepest Sympathy
