Pete was devoted to his family and cared deeply for all of his extended family As a lifelong resident of the Hill in St. Louis, Pete had too many friends to count. In his younger years sports was the center of Pete’s life. He was eventually inducted into the Soccer Hall of Fame, as well as hall of fames for baseball and softball.  His love for sports took him to many places that broadened his circle of friends even further.

  1. Pete was my softball coach many years ago. Him along with Archie were wonderful. We had many fun times together. My condolences to his family.

  2. Pete was a one of a kind nice guy. It was a treat to know him and to get to play soccer with him on the Simpkins team. Always enjoyed his occasional phone calls talking about old soccer stories.
