Southern Gentleman is what comes to mind when I think of Pete. So many great trail rides and camping trips. Pete was always there to lighten up our group with laughter. Always opening his home and farm up to his friends on trail ride weekends to make sure everyone had a great time. Condolences and Prayers to the family.
