    To my brother,

    Memories of you will always be in my heart and mind. I will never forget the good times.

  10. Uncle Pete was a solider, son, brother, and my superhero growing up. He introduce me to talk radio, aliens, and comics. You are my favorite uncle and always told me the hard truth and let me eat whatever. One of my favorite memories is watching Dolomite and ever die hard movie with you before I was seven. Uncle Pete, lived by his own rules and I loved him for that. One of a kind! Some thought he was obsessied with comics, but he put energy into what made him happy. Thats why I can’t never remember him being upset. Nostalgic is the best word to describe him. You don’t get any more loyal than Uncle Pete. He was everything to me and others. He was our family safe haven, if I needed to vent or talk and wanted a unbiased answer Uncle Pete was who I called. You might not like what you here, but it came from love and honest place. Sad thing is my daughter won’t get to experience true uncensored Great Uncle Pete. Only stories I can tell to keep his memorie alive. They say God don’t make mistakes but Unk I miss you like crazy.
