It was with great sorrow that I learned of Mr Pete’s passing. His kindness, humility, and love of Our Lord and His Mother. Ring Hily Eucharist to his beloved Lou was my prayer and treasure.
May his soul rest in the deep peace of Our Lord. My deepest sympathies to all his precious family. Mo

Uncle Pete was the last survivor, of 7 children, born to original settlers of Tontitown. My Mom was the oldest.
Great memories of a beautiful person and great farmer. He was always so proud of his grapes. Several years ago, when we visited, he took us on a tour of back roads and told us interesting stories of when he was a child.

I did not know Pete well and only for a short period of time, but he always welcomed me as though I was a member of the family; always with a smile and a happy word to go with it. May God’s peace strengthen his dear Lou and all those who love him so much.
