Condolences

Prayers to his family.
Pete was the best neighbor I ever had.
He was always to help when I needed it and if he thought I did,
He was a caring husband to his wife Maxine. Neither rain, snow or ice kept him from visiting her wen she was the Villa
in Rose City.
I remember one day when the roads were very bad I called and told him about the road conditions. I asked him not to go, she doesn't know if you are not there. His response was," Maybe she does not know but I know that I am not there."
Bless his heart and now you are with Maxine, JOE, and the rest of his family.
RIP You will be missed by all that knew and Loved you,
— Gaye Filarski
