Pete served our community as a Fireman for the Lebanon Fire Departments for 32 years. He also was employed with Smalls Garage and Culleys Service Station for many years. His father was the owner of Browns Garage for many years on the Southside of Lebanon- which sparked his love of sharp, fast cars. He loved traveling with his wife and family. Pete was always on the go and ready for an adventure at any time.

Pete enjoyed collecting several items such as knives, fire service memorabilia, and antiques. He was happiest when he was surrounded by his grandchildren and great grandchildren, they brought him great pride and joy. Pete was an early riser and often one of Hardees first customers every morning. He enjoyed getting the newspaper and catching up on the latest information from all of his buddies while he enjoyed a cup or three of coffee. Pete was known by all for his ornery sense of humor.

Pete is survived by his beloved wife Dianne; son Mark (Angela) Brown; grandchildren Katy (Brian) Cramer, Ayreka (Doug) Gibson, Jay Brown, Sheauna (Nick) Corbeau, David (Alysha) Brown and 12 great grandchildren.
