Pete was born in Havre, Montana on October 7, 1955 and spent his childhood in Big Sandy, Montana.

He held multiple job titles throughout his lifetime, including ranch hand, volunteer firefighter, and maintenance manager to name a few.

Pete is survived by his 3 sons Casey, Reece, and Jordon, along with many grandkids.

Anyone who knew Pete on a personal level knew he was always joking about something. His two main passions were hunting and fishing. He was a hard working laborer, but most importantly he thoroughly enjoyed the simple pleasures that life had to offer.

I will always be thankful for Pete's kindness and the assistance he gave my sister, Nancy Boothe. From getting the van started to accompanying her and Lisa on trips, he made her and other's lives better.
