Pete was a strong man, he was a hard worker as things didn’t always come easy, He was Loving, Caring, Very Stubborn but a great family man. He had a love for automobiles like no other. He retired late in life, but took full advantage of it, with camping, going to car shows and spending time with family and friends. His famous quote amongst family was “if ya ain’t Dutch you ain’t much” as he was very proud of his Dutch heritage. His favorite thing in the morning was taking his dog pinky on their morning car rides and drinking coffee at the dining table to think about the day. He was loved and liked by everyone and is one unique soul that can’t ever be replaced.
