I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Pete aka “Chef Tasty” for all the wonderful meals he made. Pete and my husband, Duane were the best of friends. They spent lots of time together he was even in our wedding! Pete always brought a smile to everyone with his big laugh and sense of humor! I pray that God comforts all of those he left behind! He will surely be missed! Sending love to the family.
