    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Pete’s passing. I met him through a mutual friend, Bob. I saw Pete regularly for the past several years so I know I will miss his unique humor filled with jokes and a witty banter. Our lunches were filled with many political and financial conversations. Pete constantly mentioned his children. He was VERY proud of both of them. He enjoyed teasing me and I would laugh back…he will be extremely missed.
    My heart goes out to his wife, children, lovely mother and brothers. I know he will be missed by many. Rest in Peace, Pete.

    Pete’s friend,
    Jackie Hardy
