Pete grew up in North Minneapolis and loved to play hockey at the local park with his friends and go with his big brother to the race track. By following his brother to the race track began his love for all types of racing. For 40+ years he was a mechanic at Hoover Wheel Alignment and worked on Tom Hoover's race car 9 months out of the year also. He travelled all over the world including England and Australia for racing. He also loved being out on the water in the summertime, whether it was water skiing or just being on the boat or pontoon soaking up the sun with friends and family. After many years of battling different health issues his body was tired and he welcomed the call Home.
