Peter was a good neighbor to my family for so many years. Always smiling, always willing to lend a hand, to help when my parents got older. He was a hard worker, both on his jobs and around the house. Industrious with a heart. Karen, my heartfelt sympathies go out to you. Your dad touched many lives and brought smiles to our faces.

Pete will always be remembered as a dear neighbor and close friend. We will never forget the many conversations we had inside and in front of our house. It was an honor to pray with Pete and his wife and see them get close to the Lord. He will be missed by the Ridge Road family but nevertheless forgotten. God’s blessings and comfort to those close to Pete And his family (especially Karen). Proverbs 10:7 the memories of a good man are a blessing.

Peter was my neighbor and he was warm, kind and helpful. He welcomed us to the neighborhood when we moved here 8 years ago and always kept an eye out for me and my family and my property. We will
never forget Peter’s generosity He gave my son tennis balls during our daily walks when he was younger. He also introduced my husband to the track in town so he had somewhere to go jogging. We will miss Peter greatly and feel blessed to know him. May he Rest In Peace.
Love, Laura, Rich and Daniel Liu

I met Mr. Lewis at his daughter Karen’s home, during Christmas holidays. He was a very interesting person, who had much insight to share. He had an authentic love for his family, and I always enjoyed our conversations. My sincere condolences to the Pellicone family. You are all in my prayers.
