Pete was born July 8, 1924 in Tolstoi, Manitoba. At the age of 15, he left home to live and work with his brother John at the McLennan Ranch in Alberta. He quickly found his passion for the rodeo. The two brothers traveled the rodeo circuit; John competed in saddlebronc and Pete in calf roping.

In 1985, they retired into the town of Langruth where he enjoyed his retirement years with many activities.

In 1996, his beloved wife Mae passed away. Pete remained in their home and lived independently until his sudden stroke in September. He never missed an activity his grandchildren were involved in and he looked forward to visits from his great grandchildren. Pete was an avid gardener and took great pride in his roses. He looked forward to fall suppers where he would catch up with friends. He was an active member of the Langruth United Church.

Pete is survived by his daughter BettyAnn (Robert) Kjartanson, grandchildren Susan (Anthony) and Matthew (Crystal); great grandchildren Julia and Katelyn; brothers Danny, Walter; sisters Elsie, Lena, Helen and Joyce and adopted by love, daughter Sherry Ebert. He was predeceased by his parents Alex and Mary; his wife Mae; brothers Mike, John, Steve, Maurice, Nick and sisters Anne and Pauline.
