He met the love of his life, Audrey Hermansen, while attending Snow College in Ephraim, Utah. They married on September 19, 1958 in the Manti Temple and started their family in Springville. He proudly served his country in the National Guard.
Pete was employed by PDM Steel for the majority of his working career, where he was a foreman. He served in many different callings within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was passionate about woodworking, fishing and most notably his Christmas yard decorations that adorned his house at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon for the past 30 years; he was affectionately known to some as Springville’s Mr. Christmas.
He is survived by his wife of sixty years, Audrey, a son Tom (Jana) Carter of Mapleton, daughters Julie (Bill) Wilkinson of Hanford, California, Jenny (Phil) Funk of Kaysville, and Diana (Bryce) Bray of Springville, thirteen grandchildren and one great grandson.
