Pete was a well known carpenter in the Lucinda and surrounding area. Early in his career Pete worked with his brothers. Once his sons were old enough, he taught then the trade of carpentry and they worked together as a crew, repairing many old barns along the way. Once retired from carpentry, he continued to work on his dairy farm with his two sons Bruce and Greg. He was very proud of the dairy farm he and his wife owned and operated and proud of the fact that Bruce and Greg will carry on the Lander farming Legacy.
Pete enjoyed sharing life on the farm with his wife, driving his Ford tractor, building things out of wood, working with his hands, reading Western books and sharing a shot of whiskey with his sons.
