Pete recently retired after 42 years with Delta Airlines at the Cincinnati N.KY Intl. Airport, after beginning his career at the Bangor Intl. Airport.

My deepest sympathy to Pete's Family and to all his Delta Family. My last 20 years working the Delta Crown Room/Sky Club was always brightened by a visit from Pete who worked in the Delta Tower right above us. Pete communicated with all of us during irregular operations. He gave us accurate and up to date information on the flights and what was happening at the airport. What a kind and caring man he was. May Pete Rest In Peace.

Pete was one of the funniest, friendliest guys I know. He was always grinning and had a joke. He was beloved by anyone who knew and worked with him. He will surely be missed here in CVG . God bless his family.

I remember Pete from when my Dad was in Delta maintenance in BGR and Pete was a Red Coat back in the early '80s.
Now I work for Delta and just earlier this year Pete and I exchanged several emails as he helped me to gain a position in the tower down here in ATL.
Pete will be missed by so many from all over! He truly was a great person and friend to all he came in contact with.

Becky my heart goes out to you and the entire family.
Pete always had a smile on his face and loved nothing more that to put a smile on every one else's faces by sharing a joke daily with them. He will be missed by so many.

It was a blessing and honor to have met Peter when his family attended the wedding of his nephew Joshua and our daughter Jessica. Peter had a way of putting a smile on everyone's face even if he just met you or you were his best friend forever. Thinking of the whole family with Love at this time Judy and Gary Maynard

Pete made it easy to do our jobs...he pitched in and always had something to contribute.
The world is a bit more serious without him.
God bless his family and all who loved him.
