After high school, he attended JTexas Tech University. He subsequently returned to his family ranch where he lived and worked for the remainder of his life, with the exception as a field analyst with the Texas Water Board, and a boat crew manager for the clean up for the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
After his time in Alaska, Pete returned to the family ranch where he filled his days with ranching and establishing a ranch real estate business.

He was a lifelong member of New Hope Presbyterian Church and was an ordained elder. He served as president of the Sloan Cemetery Association for several years.
Pete was met with great adversity in 2007 with his illness, but continued on with an optimistic and positive attitude and never gave up.
He was a humble, kind and gentle man. He was gracious and loving to all with a ready smile and helping hand.
