Pete will always be remembered for being a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. His sense of humor, kindness, generosity and ability to tell great stories and jokes will live on in the hearts of all that knew him.

Pete graduated from Wellsville High School and Wheeling Barber College. Upon graduation his passion and love of cutting hair began which has spanned for over 50 years. He worked out of his home where he made lasting relationships with all his customers and looked forward to all the time he had spent over the years with them and felt as they were part of his family.

Pete was truly family oriented and always made his family his top priority. He never missed any of his grandchildren’s events, he looked forward to spending time with them and he especially loved the Sunday dinners at his house where he made the best spaghetti sauce and meatballs.

He enjoyed fishing with his son, doing wood working and loved to listen and play music.
