Pete was extraordinarily proud of his children, Riley and Jake. Everyone knew Pete as a hard worker who always stepped up whenever he was needed and who genuinely loved all the guys he worked with. Pete always had many projects going on at the same time, from raising livestock to making maple syrup. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and was proud to be a farmer. He loved the Patriots and had coached youth football for Winchendon Pop Warner.
