Pete was a wonderful neighbor to us, and welcomed us like family when we moved to the neighborhood several years ago. Any time we were doing work around the house or yard work, Pete never hesitated to ask if we needed to borrow anything or needed help with this or that. I will miss chatting with him about old cars or his Harleys, and the wave we would always get from him as we'd walk by. You will forever be in our thoughts, Pete.

Pete V I will never forget his hand and guidance in decisions and coaching when we began our biz back in 1985-86 had just graduated from HS. Pete stopped over to show us some equipment and that started a relationship going back 38yrs. Pete was driving a 1985 Ford Ranger single cab silver in color wood racks towing a Owens single axle trailer. Lol 😂 I recall these things Pete was always there to serve us and our needs and so so appreciated this type of service and why he earned the business cause he out worked most and served us. As he always said “I’m a man of my word” we will deliver that was Pete V. God bless you beyond measure today is my prayer for you sir. Wayne McBain.

To my dear, loving, caring husband who is now in Heaven free of pain and pills and suffering, but I miss him so. I will go on, but it will be a struggle that I hope I can do all the right things to make him proud of me. I will do the best I can in this heartbreaking time and know you are in my heart forever. Love you, Markie
