Please accept my sincere sympathy on behalf of my brother, Dennis Jones. This is being posted by Gerry Jones.
Pete and Denny were very good friends, beginning as very young kids, all throughout school, and after, for many years into adulthood. Despite drifting apart as friends, Denny thought about Pete many times and was very sad to hear about Pete’s death.
As Denny’s “little sister”, I had the opportunity to know Pete & his family and remember being at the family home several times. I remember Pete’s humor and smile. He was alway kind to me. What a nice obituary tribute to Pete.
Condolences to his sisters and extended family and friends.

I wish to express my condolences to the Burgess family & Pete's friends. Pete lived just seven houses from me on Dickinson Ave.,in our younger days. Later years, we camped, fished in some great lakes, usually north of Stillwater, with our usual crew. I remember Peter after that, always coming to Deb's Diner for his breakfast and his newspaper. His companion (his Dog) always received his share of Pete's breakfast. We have been living a half block away since I moved to Kellogg Road. Peter was a good friend, always had a smile, a hello, or a wave when anyone went by his home on Cowin Street. Pete will be surely missed by his neighbors, friends, and his family. The Lord will now keep Pete free of his pain and always in his loving embrace. God Bless You, Pete. Tommy & Mary Messore
