We are shocked and saddened to hear about Peter Jr. Our condolences to his wife , the boys and their family. Peter had the type of character and integrity to replace our pool pump on the Friday of the long weekend in 40 degree heat with the sun beating down on him. I shared with him that most people on that day would have "knocked off around 2 p.m." and went home to relax. Peter finished the job, wiped his brow and said "no problem". His actions spoke louder than words..he will be missed.
