Many tributes to a wonderful man. May his family find peace and solace that he was loved and will be remembered by many. R.I.P Pete.

One of my happiest fiberglass meetings was when I met Pete at Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada. I twisted and twisted his arm to get him to attend our rally at Pahrump, which he did. That was a wonderful week with Pete.

To all of us who knew Pete, either in person or by the internet, our lives were definitely enriched.

Pete I know you are up there happy with Ratatouille, etal. They have been waiting for you.

Such a loss for our online community. He was always so helpful when I had questions about our Scamp. I just read Pete's obit on the CaringBridge site--he did more in his 67 years than most could do in 150! He certainly made the most of life.

I did not know Pete as he hadn't posted a lot since I joined this board.

I just read his obituary. What a rich, full life he led! I am adopting his favorite quote as my new motto:

I was just looking over the forum for an example of a time when Pete helped us. I found one that was Kevin asking about a taillight on our UHaul not working. Pete repeated 3 times to check the grounding. We left on Friday for a camping trip with a rear light still not working; the grounding still is not right. Thanks to Pete, Kevin knew it was the grounding.
He will be missed. He has already been missed.

I remember reading a comment Pete made about his cancer, and followed up on a link he gave to the oral cancer forum where, as on this forum, he used his own experiences to help others. I was shocked to read what he was living with. The helpful, valuable contributions he made to FGRV gave little hint of his personal battle. As with everyone, I will miss his knowledge and help, always appreciating his contributions. I too am sorry to not have met him, and had no idea he lived so close.

Condolences and prayers to his loved ones.

Penney

I always enjoyed Pete's posts. He was a Most Valued Player on this site.
Rest in Peace old friend.

Pete was always able to give great advice and to describe a situation with a true understanding of the details. May he rest in peace. rb

Loss of Pete

To Pete's family and friends, I am very sorry for your loss. I only knew him through this forum, but he was caring and knowledgeable and always ready to share his expertise.

This is saddening news to me.

When we bought our Scamp 13 in 2005 and I started posting newbie questions here and in the Scamp forum, Pete would always be there to lend a valuable and, as I learned as the years went on, correct opinion on the issue under discussion.

When we went to our first Oregon Gathering Pete said he was coming, but later was unable to make it, and I recall how disappointed I was as I so wanted to meet this knowledgeable and well-spoken person.

He will be missed. Profoundly.
