Condolences to all who knew Pete. I was just sorting through some old slides from Vietnam and started wondering about my husband's old war buddies. My husband, Ken, passed away in 2016 from lung cancer related to Agent Orange exposure. Wishing the best to all of the survivors of that "infamous" group.

So sorry to hear of KGPete�s passing. I�m the sister of Lt Ron Janousek USMC who served with Kent in Vietnam. He personally came to my folks home to express his sympathy on Ron�s status of MIA. Kent "adopted" me as his little sister thru the years. Prayers to the family.

I am so sorry to hear of Pete's passing. Pete and I flew together in Vietnam in 1969. We were roommates and great friends. I was hoping to touch base with him again as I did a few years ago when I saw his obituary. I am truly saddened by the loss. I will always remember his friendship and the comraderie we shared. We had a lot of laughs and fun together even during tough times. He was a great pilot and exemplary Marine. God be with you Pete. Semper Fi, Rick Gehweiler

I was so sorry to hear of Kent's passing. I was his hospice volunteer for the last 2 years. What an amazing man. I so enjoyed visiting him each week and bringing him his favorite treat..a chocolate malt. He had such a great vocabulary and we had many wonderful discussions about his work and birds. He was also very polite and always thanked me coming. We had a special bond! It was an honor to be a small part of his life. I will definitely miss him.

I have so many good memories of Kent! When my grandchildren were visiting, he made sure they had bicycles to ride the entire week. When I was suddenly hospitalized, he yelled into the ambulance that he would take care of my husband. When I returned from my northern home in January, 2018, he met me and said he had turned up the heat since it was cold for Florida. He had fertilized my lawn and repaired the dead spots. He was certainly a good neighbor and friend. I miss him and Pam but know that they are now happy and free from pain. Thanks for all that you did for your country and for me as a friend!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
