This was a great man with many accomplishments. My grandmother, his wife once wrote a book about the family, today with updates of new family members and fun stories, that book could be a series. My grandpa Pete will be missed by many, and it is now up to all of us grandchildren to pass on the many life lessons this man has bestowed upon us.
