Condolence & Memory Journal

I am affiliated with the family through serving in the Navy with Pete. I first met Barbra after the Chief Petty Officers transitional season. Those were trying and challenging times during the season, I asked Pete how was he able to maintain such calm present; and he replied that Barbra and his family was his driving force. Because of Pete's calm nature, it became very contagious and he helped me and others through the season. Once pining day came, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing. Barbra and the children and at that time and I knew what made Pete extremely successful in life. He had the best support system one could ever imagine.
Barbra, without you knowing you helped us all through those tough times by keeping Pete encourage he brought that back to the entire unit and his fellow Chiefs;
Again rest in peace Barbra and Pete I am truly sadden for our loss! Love you Pete and please stay in touch brother!
