    Ah, Pete. We went back a LONG way. I was one of the neighborhood kids who got free haircuts while Pete and Paul were practicing, learning to be barbers. Then when he had his shop downtown, we used to sneak out of the old Warren High School and go down to his shop to read comic books and smoke cigarettes before sneaking back in. As adults, our paths crossed infrequently, but I was always happier for having run into him again.
    Pete made life better for a lot of people, just by being Pete.
    My condolences.
