He once sang a duet with Norma Jean and Dolly Parton at the “Old South Jamboree” in the early 1970’s. He continued his musical career playing in his local church bands singing old gospel hymns up until his resent passing. Pete proudly served 4 years in the United States Navy on the Combat support ship the “USS Seattle”. He graduated from Baker High School Class of 1968 and also studied at Louisiana State University making the dean’s list. Nicked named “Pistol Pete” he played basketball at Baker High School and SLU. Pete taught the Pairs and Spares Sunday School class at his church. Not only did he bring a good lesson in God’s word but he, along with his guitar, played and sang the traditional hymns that the class loved so much. The lessons were always accompanied by a bit of humor with his corny jokes. Pete will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
