He soon moved into a position as an HVAC technician and Cleanroom specialist until his retirement in 2011. Pete liked motorcycles, cars, trucks, and boats. He enjoyed driving them and working on them all. He loved modifying and tinkering to make them faster; and could rebuild most anything. Pete was also proficient with computers and car audio systems. He spent many summers at South Haven, boating and enjoying Lake Michigan. He was never married, but always had at least one dog; sometimes two or even three. They were his companions over the years.
