Pete was one in a million. He was the most patient, kind, loving and considerate gentleman. He displayed a great example of a loving husband to Mary Lou and father to his 3 beautiful daughters, Nancy, MaryAnn and Kathy. He was also the best pap to his 4 grandsons, Nickie, Brandon, Jessie and Kyler. And the best uncle Pete to his many, many nephews and nieces. I will always be grateful for the hours spent with Pete fishing and listening to him telling me his stories about living through the great depression, what it was like surviving in WWII and working hard on the railroad. But most of all I enjoyed his stories of loving his family as he did with all of his heart. Truly a wonderful man that will be greatly missed by so many. To the Schanck Family you have my deepest heartfelt sympathy for the loss of such a wonderful man. Patty McArdle
