Smith, Col. (USAF Ret.) Peter Story, On May 24th, we lost our Dad although he would've insisted he's not exactly "lost" as he is in our hearts forever. Our Dad served in Vietnam and continued his career in the USAF for 27 years. After 13 assignments and 18 address changes, he retired at Wright-Patterson AFB where he was Program Manager in the F-22 engine program. After his AF retirement, he enjoyed a second career with Dayton Aerospace Inc. Aside from the love for his country, our Dad's one true love was his high school sweetheart and wife of 51 years, Carol (Angioletti). He always enjoyed recalling the story of the first time he saw and fell in love with her at the Dairy Queen in Tenafly, NJ. He was the proud father of three amazing kids and their spouses; daughter Cynthia and Sam Pratt, daughter Jennifer and Tom Lingafelter and son Matthew and Renee Smith. Our Dad loved being "Poppy" to Ashley, Izabella, Andrew, Emily, Porter and Wyatt. As he always said to us, when it stops being fun, it's time.
