Add Your Own


My Christmas card just came back to me undelivered. I am on the phone telling my sister, Brenda that I am concerned. I decided to Google Pete's name and we are so, so saddened to see that he has died. I have many sweet memories of Pete as a young boy in Four Corners, Silver Spring, Maryland, and at the beach cottage, in California, Maryland. Then another great memory of Pete as a young man with my husband (now divorced) of a week we spent in Ocean City, Maryland and Pete on the beach with his guitar and the fun we had. I remember his band, and that he was such a great lead guitar. He really was very talented. A few trips to Lantana, Florida and then I didn't see him again. I never visited in Alabama, but my sister did. I believe Pete was knee deep in peaches and pecans then. Pete and I had some phone calls that you might call marathon. He could talk a blue streak. He was the last of the Wagner family, (Nick, Helen, Tony, Pete) for me. A huge part of my growing up years. Now, nearing 70, I am remembering some very special times. I will miss him. Rest in peace dear, sweet, Pete.

So sad to hear. I grew up with Pete, 5 houses from his house in Lantana. I went to school with Pete at St Mark Catholic School in Boynton Beach. Over a period of several months, I would go over his house every day after school and/or during the summer and play guitar for him and his Mom and future band member John Densmore. Pete and John were just beginning guitar players. I hope that my playing guitar so many times at his house encouraged him to improve and take guitar lessons. The irony is he became a better lead guitar player than me. I have wanted to get hold of him for the last ten years and asked about him and tried googling his name but never found him and am very sad to hear that I won't be able to talk with him. We lost touch around the time of graduation from high school in West Palm Beach Cardinal Newman. Many more stories I could tell.
