    My Uncle Pete was a very cool guy. I haven’t seen him in a couple of years but will always remember him as a very good person. He enjoyed his family and had a heart of gold! When I was a little girl, I loved to play games with him. He was quiet spoken and gentle and loved animals and the out of doors. He will always be remembered even though he is gone. Love Terri (his niece) (Catherine Davidson’s youngest daughter.)

    Mere words cannot begin to describe Uncle Pete. A man of great character, wisdom, a heart of gold and love of family are only a few words out of many more that can describe such a wonderful man. He left this world a better place for having been given to us as a gift from God. We will all cherish his memory as we continue to pray for Aunt Alice, Marian and all family members. To his grand and great grandchildren…how privileged you were to have had such a wonderful man to look up to.

    I didn’t know Mr. Fink, but I work with his daughter, Marian.
    From what I know, he was hard working, dedicated to his country and family and a pleasure to be near. He raised a thoughtful, caring and patient daughter.

    My heart goes out to Marian, her mom and the rest of those who had the pleasure to know Mr. Fink.
