Eric Jones from Tampa, FL

"Worked with Pete for years at Sims Lifecycle Services. My greatest memory of Pete was him playing his guitar while leading the entire office in singing Christmas carols at our annual holiday party. I stood there in amazement because I had no clue, that this typically reserved man at our office, had such an immense amount of talent in him. He showed me that day and in the many days after that (that) who we are is not what we do. He was a father, husband, musician and all around good human. He will be missed."

Betty Collins from Geneva, IL

"My deepest sympathy to all of you. Pete was a great man and always fun! He is in a better place now and no longer in pain. My love goes out to you all."
