Lovely memories of Sundays at Inglewood Runners Club and especially when Pete with Andy hosted us. Pete was a generous, loving gentleman and a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. Thoughts are with family for this wonderful community man who will be very much missed.

Andy, Kris, Toni and families. Our sincere condolences are with you on the loss of a great father, family man, and for me, young mentor, Pete. May he now finally rest in peace after his long, epic battle. Pete played a large role in my teenage life, as I spent much of it in your families kitchen (fridge!), on the computer, and laying about on your lounge listening to Petes extensive record collection as Kris and I navigated our way through our teenage years. When around he always took an interest in our happenings, challenging us mentally, offering sage advise and always a good laugh. His anger or displeasure at our teenage nonsence never apparent other than a rolling of the eyes behind his glasses. While time and distance has weakened lifes bonds, please know that I'll always respect fondly the impact Pete had on my life. Sincerely, Kerry
