    I went to college with Pete in Hibbing for two years while we studied law enforcement classes together. I always knew Pete as an easy going guy with a fun personality. I wish we could have kept in touch after graduation. Please let me know of post when arrangements are made as I would like to take the trip. Deepest sympathy to Pete’s family and close friends during this difficult time.

    Pete and I became instant friends in first grade and remained so through high school and beyond. I’ll remember your gentle soul, easy going personality, quick wit, and kind ways. You will be missed and remembered at our 30-year class reunion this summer, and always, Pete. My condolences to the Peterson family.

    Please forgive me as I didn’t realize that Cy had sailed away. We were very close friends at Tabor and use to E- mail each other often. Had sent several notes to Cy only to have them returned. I should have figured that there was reason. I get the Tabor news letters but never saw Cy’s name on list. Last communication was that his grand daughter was taking glider lessons I think. Again my greatest Sympathy’s. Bill King

      Your friend at Tabor was Cy’s father, also a Cy. So terribly sad to have lost his only son.
