Pete Jr loved to make everyone laugh and made sure you were laughing by the end of the night. He was such a loving and caring person and had the biggest heart. He would always let his loved ones and those close at heart know how proud he was of them. He was an avid fan of tattoos and firearms; but his greatest love was the love he had for his daughter Giselle, as she was the key to his heart. He enjoyed watching football and sports with his father and brothers although it wasn’t for the sport, but for the companionship and company of his family. He was very loving and rarely left without making sure he had hugged and kissed his loved ones. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and all those whose lives he touched.
