Dearest Peggy,
We are so sorry to hear about your dad. Always remember he will still be with you no matter where you go or what you do. If you need anything at all, all you need to do is call.

Dear Peggy,
Surely the angels are singing today! They are welcoming home one of the kindest and loving men this world has ever known. His love for his family, friends and most of all his wife will always be remembered.
His love for sports and helping young people reach their potential at sports, will live forever. I can still see Pete and Jean sitting behind the backstop at Deer Park baseball field.
Thank You so much for sharing your father with all of us. God Bless You, Lindsay, Jeremy and Tom.

To the DeLozier family:
I am so sorry to hear of your lose, I had the privilege of working with Pete for years at NASA, great to work with and just a great person. Pete had a big heart, we talked a lot about the Green Bay Packers as I too am a fan of the Packers. I do remember he talked so proudly of his family, especially Jean. He will definitely be missed. May the good Lord smile upon you during this time. God Bless

To the DeLozier Family from an old friend of Pete's: I played ball with Butch in both Little League and Pony League, enjoying many wonderful afternoons being coached by Pete. He was a great man with remarkable ability toward bringing out the best from each of us as players!

Although I have been in Colorado since 1977, I often return to the old neighborhood and remember fond days of playing ball behind Briarfield Elementary at the Little League Field where Pete taught us to bat, catch, and slide. But most of all Pete drove into each of us the need for good sportsmanship! God Bless you, Pete, and may you rest in peace! Our prayers for your family during this time of sadness!

  To the DeLozier Family,
My deepest sympathy in this time of loss. Pete was my coach and my friend. He was one of a kind. You knew God was at work when you observed Pete interacting with people. May God's peace now comfort you all during this difficult time. Pete will never be forgotten.

Peggy and Family,
I have so many fond memories of Uncle Pete. I always loved the stories he had to tell and his sense of humor. I know he had an impact on a lot of lives and was a role model for many. He will be missed but we know he is with his beloved Jean. May the peace of Christ be with you during this time of sadness.

I am sorry to hear about Pete's passing away. I worked with him years ago and I went to school with Butch.

I was one of the many young men that "Pete" took under his wing and taught the love of athletics and the meaning of good sportsmanship. His teaching have stayed with me my entire life. I grieve with you during this time. God Bless you, "Pete".
