Pete was our fun loving, sweet, caring young man. He impacted everybody with his loving smile and his contagious laugh. He had a gift to make all around him happy. The kid never walked around without a smile on his face. Everybody loved Pete. He always asked his mama how her day was. Pete loved to be outdoors and the lake life was his life. He always had a joke, sometimes inappropriate, but always made people laugh. We cannot express how much Pete was loved and cared for by his family, friends, and community. There was no one like Pete. His personality was so full of life. He was and is a great son, great brother, and great friend. We love you Pete. You are still going to have an impact on so many more lives. You have always been our families sunshine. You brought so much joy to us in the seventeen years that we were able to have you here with us. We know that Jesus is now holding you in his arms as we are here grieving for your loss. We know that you have joy and peace with Him, oh how beautiful it must be. We will miss our sweet Pete.
