Pete was a kind, considerate gentlemen. I can remember him calling me 'Joey' with a big smile on his face when I was a youngster. Always friendly and gracious with everyone. May God bring peace at His loss to family and his many friends. Joe & Doris

Pete was a good friend to my dad, Bill Rogers. Randy and I thought a lot of Pete. I always enjoyed listening to him talk about his garden. I will miss seeing his smile at Wal-Mart. May God grant you comfort in the days and weeks ahead. You are in our prayers.
