My heart is saddened to hear of the death of your dad. I am so sorrow to have found out late. I would have loved to have been at his celebration service.
Your dad was such a special person to so many and his influence in coaching (and probably in so many other ways) changed lives. Even in recent years he would go out of his way to say hi.
He will be sorely missed, but his memories will last forever.
I thank God for friends like "Mr. Pete".
Our prayers are with the family.

My early years of knowing Mr. Pete was when the Ganders were were playing at Memorial Stadium and my dad was one of theTeam Doctors. Baytown surely has lost another fine man. God Bless you, Pete Sultis...say "hi" to my dad

Played for Mr. Pete 3 years ending in 1958. He was the one we all looked up to.
Seemed to always know your fears and feelings. Was a great man and a good coach.

Dear Barbara, Janie and Kristi,
I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He had a wonderful life full of great friends and the best family. Most of my childhood memories are of your family and our family spending time together in our backyards with the gate joining them (I think our moms that put in!) It was really one big backyard. I remember your dad yelling for you guys to come home to supper too. It was a

Barbara, Jane, and Kristi,
I was sorry to hear of your father's passing. I once read that when someone you love dies, they become a memory and that memory becomes a treasure. Pete Sultis was definitely one of a kind. Baytown and Goose Creek C.I.S.D. are better because he and Georgia made the decision to come, work, raise a family, and live amongst us. He was so very proud of each of you. Keep your memories close and speak of him

To the family of Pete Sultis,
My name is Jack Spivey. I played on the 1964 Ganders under Mr. Pete. I started at right tackle and my number was 74. I shared the "Pi Yi" Kern award with Jerry Kovar the team captain. I was a Honorable Mention tackle on the Houston Post All district team for 1964. I list those things not to brag but because I am proud to have achieved them. I was a 165lb tackle in a

I am so thankful to have been coached by Mr. Pete. We respected him. We knew he was in charge. He coached us in football and in life. In fact, I remember him saying often, "It's the game of life, boys." And he was right. Thank you, Mr. Pete. May God's Eternal Peace surround you, and may God's Comfort be with your family at this time of their loss.
