My deepest condolences to Jeri and the rest of Pete’s family. Pete was a special man and I will always remember his kindness in hiring me, a young pilot, to fly him and his crew around to car auctions. Wisconsin and the Great Lakes area are truly beautiful places, especially when viewed from above and I vividly recall Pete smiling from ear to ear, taking in the scenery, as we flew along. I also fondly recall those absurdly bright pink baseball caps that Pete had us all wear while at the car auctions “so we can find each other easier” as Pete explained. Pete, you are cleared for an approach to the Pearly Gates - may you have blues skies and a tailwind! - Mike & Sandy Feltz, Stevens Point

Dear Jeri, Peter and LeeAnn I send my sincere condolences to you and the rest of Pete's family. Pete was a special man and had a profound effect on my life by providing the start of my automobile parts career. I will never forget him for that and I will be eternally grateful. I know and understand how the loss of a close family member hurts but I hope and pray the Lord will help and look out for you as you looked out and took care of Pete! Mike Farmer

Pete was a great guy . And will be missed when I was about 10 years old he had a Honda shop in Stevens point on church street. And when I got older I got in the car business. And was able to buy cars from him at his dealership. RIP my friend
