On October 3, 1928, Pete married Lillie Wyneta (Wolf) & to this union was born Chloe (Brown) & Dixie (Zufelt). Pete's father & infant sister preceded him in death.

Pete enjoyed good late-model cars & in the mid-late 1950s, Pete drove a four-door Kaiser automobile - it seemed like a spaceship back then.
