Recollections & Sympathy For the Family
Post Comment
I am so sorry that my parents could not make the services. My mom , Inez has a spinal fracture from a recent fall. My dad Jimmy has trouble getting around but they were both very upset hearing about Pete's passing.

To the entire Field family, we are sorry for your loss. I would run into Pete at Cumby's on Ashland St most mornings. He was always polite.

I knew Pete well from the National Guard, and baseball. He was a nice man, fun to be with and caring. My thoughts are with you all at this time.
