A U.S. Army veteran, Pete served for 5 years, stationed in Fort Benning, GA and Bamberg, Germany. Pete moved to Wilmington, NC to pursue a career in road & site construction, most recently as Vice President of W.R. Willis Construction. Pete's best attribute was his wonderful personality; he never met a stranger and was the life of every party. Pete loved fishing, golf, and cooking.
