Thank you for writing this wonderful tribute to Pete. He was all of those things you mention and more.
May God bless his soul.
For some time, Pete’s seminars were marketed by the old United Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Association and he did a kind of road show as Pete traveled the country trying to spread the gospel of a more professional industry. Those gathering in Las Vegas for the United Fresh Convention ought to raise a glass in his honor.
