Pete was a 1972 graduate of Chaney High School and worked several jobs during his career.
He was a hard worker and valued employee at the Moyers Pants Factory, Berkowitz & Sons and at the Fairhaven Workshop in Niles.
Pete enjoyed playing guitar with his friends, fishing with his father and making his own fishing lures. He was an avid bowler and bowled in the St. Christine League at Wedgewood Lanes. Pete also enjoyed cooking and canning and made delicious salsa and hot peppers. “Uncle Pete”, as he was known to his family and friends, carried on the Hungarian tradition of cooking bacon over a wood fire, which he used to make his fantastic bacon bread.
