Condolence & Memory Journal

Mr. Pete was a staple of many fond childhood memories for too many children of rural Delaware County to count. What a wonderful man he was. Very fond memories of picking out my candy or Hostess Cherry pies among the dusty shelves and knowing it would be better than from any other place because it came from Pete. May God bless his family.

I'll never forget trips to Pete's Grocery growing up. Riding our bikes over. Mini Bikes when we were a bit older. Sadly I had some friends that were slick fingered, but anytime I found out they'd taken candy, I'd come back and pay up. It was nonsense. Pete appreciated my honesty and I appreciated him. Last I saw him was while shooting the film Return In Red with Tyler Tharpe. Good Ol' Pete. Never a bad memory of this amazing man.

I will never forget Pete. All the memories of riding my pony or bike from Reed Station to Commack, for a pop and a bag of penny candy. My sister and I must have ridden a million miles in the summertime. We we're blessed to know him.
