Zana and family,
I was very sorry to hear of Pete’s death. He was a great guy and a delight to be around. I enjoyed the times that we had golfing. Even though it was not easy for him to get around the course, he always “toughed” it out.
I’m sorry I did not get to know Pete during his Firestone years. During my 35 years at Firestone, our path’s never crossed.
But, I always enjoyed his many, many stories about his time at Firestone. He should have written a book. It would have been a best seller.
My thoughts and prayers will be with you and the family.
Zana and Daughters, I am just devasted at our loss of Peter. I enjoyed his friendship since he came to Nashville around ’73, I believe. We played a million holes of golf and laughing all the way. What a joy he was to be around. I suffered with him these last few years as he was limited in what he could do. I’m glad he was determined to continue to “ride” the courses with us. I regret that I have a firm committment in Memphis on Monday. Not paying my respects to him, as he deserved, is an awful burden on me. I hope that I get to see you before or after the services. If I can do ANYTHING for you now or at anytime later, please allow me to help. I will miss my friend….Mack E. Easley Smyrna TN
Zana, Pete was a true friend and although I am sadden by his pasing I know that he is at peace. A peace he well deserves. Pass my regards to his family, and call me if you think I can be of help.Take care, Ollie & Dyeann.
Dear Zana and family,
I worked with Pete back in the 70’s at the plant in LaVergne. He was always so much fun to be around. We spent much time talking about life in the frozen north I’m from Iowa. I am truly saddened at his death as I know you are, but I know that God will give you comfort. Please accept my condolences.
I worked with Pete for a long time and he will be missed. My heart goes out to his family. Randy Stafford
A wonderful man and will be missed!
I am so grateful that the Sunday before Grandpa passed I was able to talk with him and tell him how much I loved him and was thinking of him. He was a wonderful Grandpa and I will miss him always. I know he will be watching over us. I LOVE YOU GRANDPA!
Grandpa Peter was taken too soon for us. We looked forward to seeing him and Zana every summer in Ely. No matter what else was going on we alway’s made sure we made it up to Ely for their visit. He was a kind, generous, and thoughtful man. We will miss him alot and know that god found his next angel in Peter. Love you Grandpa. Ryan, Linda, Josie and Jayden
Grandpa you will be truly missed by all, we love you so very much!
We hold dear the wonderful memories of the summer of 2009, your final trip to Ely.
Love you always & forever,
Mackenzie & Mitchell
My amazing Grandpa Pete…You will forever be missed. I’m so glad we had the chance to see you last summer and that you got to meet Cameron and baby Maddy in my belly : Your love and spirit of life will live on through all of us. And I know you are up there golfing on the most beautiful courses with the big guy! And I know that you will be our guardian angel always. Love you forever!
Love, Melissa, Cameron, and Madilynn
It’s been a few weeks, but the loss lingers. So many photos around the house that remind me of times past. Just rest in peace dad and enjoy watching the family from a higher place. Know how much you’ll be missed by all. I will forever miss your hugs and that’s one of the toughest things to get through. I love you Dad….
