Pete was such a kind and generous man I am so sorry for your loss. In my first job I was lucky to work with Pete, he was a patient and caring instructor I was always grateful for his help. He often spoke of his family I knew they meant everything to him the saying is "La Famiglia e tutto" the family is everything!
Please accept my deepest sympathy

Pete was the epitome of a gentlemen. He has left his mark as a friend, father, grandfather, husband and every other aspect of life. He will be surely missed by all. Love thoughts and prayers are with the Loreti family.

Rest in peace Pete.
