I was saddened when I heard the news that Uncle Pete had passed. So very good memories of him. The best was getting stopped by border patrol heading into Canada with my dad and Uncle Pete. He will be truly missed.

We will miss Pete's humorous, welcoming and nonjudgmental personality. Rest In Peace.
