I knew Pete since I was 10 yrs old. I lived next door to him,Pat and Petey and Crissy and knew Pete's Mother and Father. Pete was a wonderful and kind hearted man. He loved his family with all his heart He adored his sons and Pat was the love of his life, there was no other one in his heart only her. Pete had a wondeful, carismatic personality, he loved people and his smile would light up a room just like his voice when he sang with his band. I can remember when I was a young child sitting on my front porch in the summertime and Pete would be playing his guitar and singing,I had a front row seat along with my mother,brother and sisters. Pete was a wonderful neighbor and friend who helped all his neighbors lots and lots of times,he helped me get my first car. Thanks Pete. Pete also loved his band members especially his "Brojole",they sang together for many years. Pat my sincere condolences yo you and your's and Pete's sons and granchildren, Pete was a remarkable man and will live in your hearts forever.
Shirley, Art and family

Our prayers and thoughts go out to Pat, Chris, Sandi, Christopher and Christian (who loved their Poppy) and the rest of Pete's family.
We will miss you, Pete. (We already have at the family gatherings when you haven't been there). God knows the reason why things happen; We don't.
They say Heaven is a beautiful place with streets of Gold and there is no more suffering or pain. We will all meet you there someday.
In the meantime, we will be MISSING YOU.
