    To Maureen and the family.

    Pete was an amazing guy, and I feel privileged to have known him. Working with Pete five days a week, for the last year and I half-I must share with you that nobody could tell a story like Pete. Whether it was a smartly sarcastic way of talking about work issue or just a funny story of his past. My face hurt a good part of the day after from laughing so much. I’ll always cherish those memories of the interesting stories he shared with me.
    Sending warm thoughts and prayers,my sincere condolences to you and the family.

    I am so sorry that Pete is no longer with us. Pete was a great guy and had a great sense of humor.
    I worked with Pete for 15 years or so and he will be missed by me and all who worked with him at HRC.

    Dear Reenie and family,
    My dear Mr. Pete … a friend so dear in laughter and sorrow.
    A man of many passions – baseball, puppies, horses, kitties, Reenie, movies and literature. He embraced all with humor, tinged with sarcasm.
    You always blew me away with your brilliance … quoting Yeats and Joyce and Thomas. What a glorious mind.
    I will not forget you but will definitely miss you.

    Pete will be remembered by the Karamalakos family as a very special person. He was a pleasure to be around; a true gentleman and a kind soul. We always saw him together with Maureen, and seeing them both at the same time will be dearly missed. We have fond memories of exchanges between the McFaddens and our family, those will never be forgotten. Pete: you are in our hearts and our thoughts, and although you are no longer physically here with us, we will relive the memories that you have forever left ingrained. Please watch over Maureen and help her endure, as she did for you. Until we are Kings….. Peace and Love my Brother.

    Maureen and Family and Friends

    Pete is an unforgettable character. In reading the comments left by his other friends and coworkers I realize we all got the same feelings about him. He gave us his friendship freely and made us laugh. He was generous with his knowledge
    of horse racing, dog racing, baseball. You name it he knew it. He was a fine person and I will also, along with my husband keep him in our hearts and memory. We love you Maureen.

    Maureen and Family,
    I worked with Pete for 15 years and will miss talking horse racing with him. Pete had the most widespread knowledge about anything and everything out of any one person I have ever met. He always loved hearing about my kids (Brady and Owen) and all the shenanigans they were into. Pete also never missed a birthday present for them.

    He will be greatly missed.

    I was one of Pete’s customers in NY. He could certainly get a good belly chuckle going in me and leave me smiling with the funny emails he would send in response to one of our thousand requests! He was so well loved and appreciated by all of us here that had the pleasure of working with him! Even though we never met him in person, we felt he was a friend! Deepest condolences to you all!

  • Patti DeMilia says:

    I am honored to have had the pleasure of working with Pete (my vendor) for many years. His funny e-mails always put a smile on my face especially when my day was not going well. He will sure be missed by us all. Pete, I am sure you are making people smile :-) May you rest in peace my friend.
