Pete left the big city life to live his dream in the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. He was a true lover of fly-fishing and photography. Pete was happiest when he was out on his Boston Whaler at one of his favorite spots, Lake Davis. With his best fishing buddy, Woody, at his side, he would patiently wait for that big fish to rise to one of his expertly tied flies. He loved nature and found pleasure in photographing all its beauty. He loved spending time at his cabin and spending time in his garden. When he wasn't off stalking the big one he enjoyed making his place look great. On a cold winter night nothing was better to Pete than seeing Woody curled up in front of a nice warm fire. Pete was a long-suffering 49er's and SF Giants fan and he reveled in their Super Bowl and World Series victories. Pete lost his courageous one-year battle with cancer on Friday, June 22, 2018. He is survived by his twin brother, Doug, and older brother and sister, Skip and Pat (Hendrickson) and extended family. Pete will be sorely missed by family, friends and all his fishing buddies.
