    I just heard of Pete's passing and I would like to send my condolences to his family and friends. Although I moved away and had not seen him in years, we were inseparable neighbours from ages 6-11. That age seems young now, but then it was a time of adventure and we had many. Pete was always fearless and extremely loyal. By the time Pete was 10, he knew the make, model and year of every car that drove by and knew the name and artist of every song on the radio. Pete was cool. Rest in peace "Peter Stem".

    Sending my condolences on hearing of Pete's passing. Pete and I would chat about his building his fast car and many other things when I worked at Shell. It was always great to see Pete and his 'smiling' face all the time. May he rest in peace.....Georgina xoxo
