Petey was a friend of my late father Doc DiDonato. Dad always made sure Petey had a holiday meal. May he rest in peace and be enjoying a brew with his friends in heaven.
Teresa, Lori, and family,
So sorry to hear of your brother’s and uncle’s passing. I’d see Pete occasionally downtown Greenville. He was a kind, pleasant man, who always had a smile to cheer the day, and a story to tell. His gentle kindness will be greatly missed by many. May your fondest memories bring you comfort.
