I've known Pete for some 20 years on and off the tennis courts. Our team of players always enjoyed the friendship that Pete displayed to us, his sportsmanship, and his stories of his and Kathy's travels to warm places, and the stories of his Children and Grandchildren. Prior to warming up it wasn't uncommon for a story to last 5-10 minutes, full of details, laughter, and just pure pride.

For the past few years Pete was always talking about his retirement, then Kathy's retirement, and how retirement would change their lives in meaningful ways. I remember standing in the YMCA Tennis club's parking lot one night, snow falling on a dark night, his retirement letter had been submitted and he was the happy. He was relishing his new time to really do whatever they wanted. Could be fishing, traveling, visiting the grand kids, or planning their next life adventure. Then the conversation turned to whether or not he should purchase the company car....he decided not to. Then he said something that surprised me, but not now, he said they may move to be closer to the kids, he really wanted to be involved and cherished that opportunity. There wasn't a Tuesday or Thursday night match that followed a visit to the kids and grand kids, that didn't have a great story to be told and enjoyed by all.

Pete was also our local Restaurant Guide, providing details of the menu, parking, and what to pick the following weekend. I remember a restaurant he spoke of in Syracuse, it took us 2 years to get there, but it met every expectation that Pete told us of. Travel coordinator as well, cruises, trips to far away places, warm places, and the best deals possible. I must say that during our winter months of playing tennis, his return with these stories made us really envious.

Here's the thing with Pete, he was always a gentleman on the tennis court, and a superb person off the court. He always greeted you with a smile, and the things that bothered us, just seemed to roll off his feathers.

Our Team will miss Pete, his wit, his character, the life stories he brought to us, the recommendations, but most of all the handshake of friendship he always extended before and after play. In life, there are friends who simply pass you by, and there are those that touch your life in some small or great way......Pete touched our lives in a special way, and we rejoice and give thanks that our life paths crossed. Pete's spirit will remain a part of all our lives, and we're thankful for that.

Our thoughts and prayers are extended to Kathy, their children, and their grandchildren. We pray that our Lord will bring comfort to your hearts.

Oh beautiful Shevchuk family! I'm so sad to hear about your Dad
. Our memories of, baseball, baseball! From the time all of you were little to the high school season when Molly didn't have a single at bat. But your Dad was always there cheering her on and telling her she was wonderful. What a wonderful man!
The Dubansky family sends prayers for strength and peace!

Amanda and family-
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. I know my husband Tom really enjoyed talking to him during all those Fisher softball games. Now they can share more conversations together. All those memories will give you comfort in this difficult time. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
Stay strong!
