Andrea, Laura & Irene along with any other members of Peter’s family that I did not have the privilege to meet. Please accept my condolences on his passing and hang on to the good memories you have of his time with you, then on the hard days reflect on them. May God Bless you all.

To the Buchholz family;
So sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. He was truly a gentleman and we had some fun working together. We’ll miss his stories of the old country and his tales of the concrete business here of years past. We lost another avid motorcyclist. Godspeed Pete!

Sorry for your loss Laura and family. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Andrea, Laura and Irene,

So sorry for your loss.
I am thinking at this difficult time.
