    I remember when Pete opened his Laundry in the spring of 1968, I was ten years old and would ride my bicycle there to play the pinball machines Pete had installed.
    I remember Pete as a busy and industrious fellow. He was always working, servicing his laundry and operating his steam cleaning business, sterilizing all the shopping carts in the supermarkets throughout Escambia County. He was an all around good guy and I can only speak good of him.

    My condolences to the Tipton family and Pete’s many friends. I will miss him.

    Teresa, you were the love of his life, you had one of the good guys. His children and grands were the bonus of your life together. Pete was a good friend and I will miss him. Stay strong lean on God’s everlasting word, praying you and family find Comfort in believing he is resting in the arms of our Lord.

    Teresa, Ricky and I just saw this and we are sending our love to you all. I have known pete 46 years and Ricky has known him all of his life. It is difficult to see people younger than us that we have known so long go home. Praying that GOD sends his HOLY SPIRIT to comfort you all. May He wrap you in His arms of love and keep you at peace. Take care of you, love sent your way.
