Pete was a special light in everyone's life. I will remember him entering a room with Carolyn always by his side with a huge smile on his face ready to sing or hang and listen to some live rock and roll. Talented, humble and brilliant in his encyclopedic knowledge of music, I learned something every time we met. God bless and Godspeed, my friend.
