Pete’s father tragically passed away on 9/11 when he was seven years old. Prior to the Marriott Trade Center collapsing, his father, a firefighter for the NYC Fire Department, was last seen running inside the building. For Pete, the loss was extremely distressing, and he later showed his sorrow by misbehaving in class. He ran into difficulties rather frequently.
