So sorry to hear about Pete. What an awesome guy he was. I had the pleasure of staying at Pete's house when we visited French Lick. Always had fun when Pete was around, you were missed in Florida this year, I will definitely miss you while playing Texas Holdem. Prayers for Kay and Pete's family.

So sad to hear of Pete's death. I'll remember Pete as a kind, friendly, helpful and generous man. A friend to everyone. We dearly missed him in Florida this winter. I was blessed to have visited Pete in October with his many friends from French Lick. We all have many pleasant memories of good times with Pete.
My deepest sympathy to his long time friend Kay and his Family and Friends in this very difficult time.

I worked for Pete several years, am so sad to learn of his death. Crane retirees met at French Lick and had lunch with him a few weeks before Christmas, so glad we had that time to visit and be together. I am so sorry for the loss in your family.
