Pete was very active in APRA and served in multiple capacities including president. My most vivid memory of Pete was in my back yard after an APRA conference in Springfield. Pete took one look at the grill, hung his hat on a hook and grabbed the spatula to feed 40 people. He was a vibrant personality with whom I spent many happy hours. He will be missed by all who knew him.
