My sincere condolences to all of Pete's family and friends. He was one of the good guys... always happy to see you, and always with a kind word. My husband Carl, a co-worker from Narragansett Electric, was quite fond of Pete. Very sorry for your loss.

My dad, John Ingham, worked with Pete for many years at Narragansett Electric and they were great friends on and off the job. I remember Pete from my teenage days, always with a smile and kind words. My thoughts and prayers go out to Pete's family.

Lynne, Peter, Kenny,

Pete & Lucy we're my parents best friends. We are all deeply saddened with Pete's passing. We remember going to the Turano's house on Saturday nights while my parents played cards with Pete, Lucy, Tom and Nan. We have many fond memories of Pete like going with my parents to play cards with Pete, Lucy, Tom and Nan. Also going to Pete's house to swim in his pool or being able access the beach using Pete's name or or seeing Pete come to my parents house for coffee and asking how nummy was. He lived a long and good life and will be greatly missed.

There are so many great memories of Pete while I was growing up. They were best friends with my parents and he was always getting things started with my Dad. I loved the way he treated us and always gave me compliments , even though some of them were back handed. So sorry for your loss. Tom, Pete, Lucy and Nan are playing cards together again.

Pete & Lucy were such great friends of my parents, Tom & Nan Briody. I remember many times when the two couples played cards at our home! Pete’s laughter was so contagious, always enjoying life! Please accept my sincere condolences. Keep the happy memories in your thoughts!
