Pete was dedicated to his family, and the happiest when he was surrounded by the ones he loved. Pete loved to cook and was always found in the kitchen preparing meals. He made a career of bringing a taste of Greece to the United States. The energy he brought to any occasion made him the life of the party. He always made time for the kids, whether it be taking them to their sporting events and practices, coaching them, or cooking for the various milestones in their lives. As the family patriarch, his loss has left us with a huge void.
Until we see you again - "Chief"
