    Pete – AAAAAH – oh it’s just you. I will miss those conversations and screams at beginning of the call.
    Pete, David, Scott and family, your dad and grandpa was truly an kind, amazing man. I last spoke to him on his birthday, May 10 and we had some laughs. All the years we worked together at CWA and traveled as a group with him and sometimes your mom, were just great fun! We had a dinner group of Executive Board members that got together once or twice a year for over 25 years, until Covid. I will miss that smile, laugh and the sincere, gentle person he was.
    Our group has all been informed and they too, send their love and hugs to your family. Your memories will bring you peace and I am sure he is happy to be reunited with your mom and Beth. Dawn

    Pete, had always been a pleasure to work with, entering the Beard Central Office, asking “what do You need now” ?
    With a little smile He’d help Me
    He’d give me his full attention and do what need to be done.
    Thank You Pete for Your Service.
