Uncle Pete... You were the Candy man and sparkler guy at every family reunion that I can ever remember. When my family would roll up the the reunion you would always yell "Look out NJ is here". We loved every second of it. You will always be in our hearts. You are one of the Krenitsky legends. Tell my Grandpa Mike and all of your other brothers they are not forgotten. But loved forever. Thank you for making our family Great. Love you... Love, Vera Lahotsky

Peter has been a life long friend. We attended school together and shared many wonderful moments together. His was a life well lived, but I will miss him dearly. One more angel for heaven. My deepest sympathy to the family.
