Every road that he traveled, friends were made, stories collected and people brought together. He was that "one-degree of separation". A soulful man, beautiful uninhibited spirit, with a zest for life, thirsts for experiencing new things. Pete was a great father, true friend, and sweet brother. Uncle Peter "Pete" Pshsniak Jr. entered eternal life on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014 at 1:31 p.m.
His spirit and curiosity for life is carried on by his two daughters, a sonin-law, a grandchild, six siblings, and 11 nieces/nephews. Peter also leaves behind a cherished extended family of loved ones and friends from every walk of life, and his right hand, little buddy "Jack" the black dog.
Throughout his 55 years, Pete offered "nuggets" of wisdom to everyone he met, even if you didn't ask. Pete was born in Warren, Ohio, on May 21, 1958, the son of the late Peter and Olga (Vasko) Pshsniak. He was a 1976 graduate of Salem Senior High School and played Quaker football (#21). Peter's career path, in conjunction with his charismatic personality spanned from a technician to a tradesman.
