  1. candle 1Pete words are hard to come we were friends for 40 years and Shipmates at SIMA San Diego. We played Slow-pitch Soft ball for 17 years in the Navy and civilan teams. Some of the greatest moments was winning the Pacific Softball Champions for several years. We took a lot of 1st place trouphys home. I introuduced to soft ball in August of 1980 when you told me you didn’t know how to play softball and it was apparent because you struck out 3 times that you batted. That day we beat the Naval Station Varsity team and they said they wanted to give us a break. The following year I took over the Varsity Team and be became a team that every Naval Base and the Marines wanted to beat us. You became one of San Diego best hitter with Homerun power and when we need a just a hit. That year we became real close more than friends but as a family member. You called me Pops and Mary Mom our daughters Lavette and Michelle as sisters. One of the strangest of picking up Michelle aat UCSD you took her to a Bank close by and as you waited outside for her the man in front of her was robbing the bank and she was clueless on as they were questing her she saw you face down and spread eagle on the ground as the Cops had their guns on you. They wouldn’t listen to you and Michelle runs out of the Bank holloring “What are you doing to my Brother” so the Cops finally realized you were not part of the Bank Robbers. When you left and got on the Freeway you finally said, “Michelle don’t you ever bring me to this Bank again! We all had a good laugh about it for a while and you were alway such a good person, a gentle giant of a man. I finally gave you a key to our house so you could come over anytime and crash, so you did for 17 years because in 1992 I retired from the Navy and moved back to Colorado for 15 years and as soon as we came back to California you were at my Daughter Lavette’s house to greet us back. You went back to Colorado with me two times and got to meet my entire family and they all thought they knew you forever because we all talked about you when we went back to visit our families in Colorado. Pete you can’t imagine how much we will miss you and that infectious laugh you had and your favorite saying “Ah come on.” Pete you will be welcomed with open are when you get to the Pearly Gates because God need an other great Angel and if you have a chance please come and visit us. We love you Pete to Heaven and Back! Please put in a good word for me because I will need it and I know God will listen to you. Fairwell and Following Seas. Shipmate, Friend and Brother.
