Throughout his life, Pete worked in the print industry, retiring as print manager from Wright Line Company in Worcester. Upon retirement Pete enjoyed boating on Webster Lake, spending time with family and friends and attending concerts at Indian Ranch. Pete loved and was very proud of his son, PJ. for his accomplishments in the medical field and military service. His grandchildren were most important to him. Juliana & Andrew brought a lifetime of love into his life. His greatest pleasure was watching them do well in school and play their sports. He took great pride in watching them grow up and you could always find him cheering them on from the sidelines at their sporting events. His family remembers their son Doug with love. Lydia’s husband & best friend will be missed so very much… until they meet again, God Bless.
