It saddens us to hear of Pete's passing. He truly was a wonderful husband and proud father. He always made us smile, laugh, and we shared many good times through the PA PHCC. We will miss him terribly, until we meet with him again soon. Ruth Ann and family, you are surrounded by many friends and family who truly care. God bless.

Ruth Ann , Lloyd, Doug my heart goes out to you all. We wanted more than you know to be there. Pete was my buddy and you and Pete always made me feel like family when we visited  Mt Holly so many years ago. Pete helped Ruth and RAY so much and for that we appreciate so much. May God give you comfort and peace during this time and months to come.
