  5. This is my expression of sympathy for a good friend and fraternity brother at Carnegie Melon University in the early 1970’s.
    Fast forward 10 years Pete meets my new family in a visit to Michigan in 1983. My wife Joan and step daughter Denise.
    In 1989, we visited southern California with plans to meet up with Peter near his home. He met my family again now with a second daughter Marisa.
    This was the last time we saw Peter. In my retirement at 70, I came across an this obit which belonged a dear friend and fraternity brother. Peter will befondly remembered.
