Pete graduated from Robert E. Lee High School and Lee College. He also graduated from the University of Texas, where he studied Petroleum Land Management. 

Pete operated his own business as a Landman combining three of his loves: maps, research, and Texas.

Pete’s interests were many, including bowling, golf, domestic travel, good food & wine, Fantasy Football, and family. He was everyone’s (Unka Pete.)  An excellent wordsmith, he had a knack for putting a situation in context with the bigger picture, most often with a good dose of humor.
