Rest easy now Uncle Pete and tell my dad I miss him Love Holly
Uncle Pete lived a long and interesting life. He was the last of his immediate family. His favorite stories were about working on the Wilson Line boats and working at Camelot. He retired at 83 years old. He had many pictures of the Wilson Line that he cherished. The pictures and stories brought him much joy. He created model boats of the Wilson Line and one is located at the Riverview Inn in New Jersey.
Rest in Peace, Uncle Pete. I am sure Heaven will welcome you and your many friends and family will be singing and full of joy as you spend eternity with them.

A lifetime of memories – I remember when he lived with us & I was a little girl. He would sit me on his dresser & sing to me as he got ready for work as the first mate on the Wilson Line – He had a wonderful voice & was a “crooner” on the midnight cruises. Very close to him when he worked for Russ at Camelot. He was a great handyman & taught the boys many practical skills. The Wilmington Fire Department had recognized him as a member of their engine companies. So friendly to everyone – When my boys were babies he played with them everyday & peeled grapes for Rusty – Both my sons checked on him after he retired & was still living on terminal ave – taking him to do his banking when he could no longer drive ,etc. It was sad when he had to move to Manor Care but he needed daily care & it was a beginning of a new chapter in his life & others could do better at that point than me. But in the end – I have a lifetime of memories & love shared by a wonderful gentleman – known to the world as “Uncle Pete”. Singing with the heavenly choir & his sister, my mother, Sue.

Uncle Pete, I always remembered you taking me to Wilmington and watching the trains. You knew all the fire stations and equipment. You would stop by our house with soda. Little memories that I will always remember. RIP
