I met Pete when he came into the Barbershop where I worked, and he was so nice. He would always call before he came in just to make sure I was there. I am going to really miss him calling me to see if I am at work. Bless you Pete, I will never for get your kindness and our conversations we would have during your haircut. I am glad I got to be your barber and to make you look your most handsome self. Godspeed Pete

My great uncle Pete's passing will leave a void in my life. He was loved by all for both his humor and leadership. He was a man of many talents that leaves behind a large family that enjoyed his company for years yet are not ready for him to go. I will remember you.

We are so sorry for the passing of your dear loved one. May your family find true peace and comfort from God’s promise to reunite us with our family and friends by means of an earthly resurrection (Acts 24:15). We all long for the fulfillment of this wonderful promise from our Heavenly Father. Until that glorious day arrives, may you lean on the God of all comfort for strength during this difficult time. Please accept our sincere condolences.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I first met Pete when he was a retreatant on an ACTS retreat at Our Lady of Lourdes church and I was on team helping to put on the retreat. I was quickly drawn to him by his wry sense of humor and his demeanor. We became fast friends after the retreat and he invited me to become part of his poker group that meets once a month and he also got my wife Linda and I involved in the Serra Club of Galveston which promotes vocations for the Catholic Church. Pete was a great friend and I will sorely miss him.

Uncle Pete you were very special to me. You always made me laugh and kept us on our toes with jokes and magic tricks. When you lived in Austin, you always made us feel welcomed. We had great laughs and shared wonderful memories. We love you and will miss you very much.

To My "Great" great Uncle Pete. I am so happy that I was able to see you on many happy occasions during the past few years. From choir events to other Dulles functions it was always good to see you and Doris along with all of your girls. I will miss that. And I will miss you.
