    We have known Pete and Charlynne for over 50 years. We enjoyed annual anniversary diners and great trips to Ocean City for the Columbus Day Sidewalk sales.Pete especially loved riding bikes on the Boardwalk and savoring seafood dinners. Pete was also a great friend to us helping us with household renovations at no cost to us. Pete was a loving husband, father and grandfather. Memories of their time together will comfort them now and in years to come. Life was difficult for Pete during his last few years but Charlene"s loving care gave him great comfort. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Caillaud family. Rest in peace, our friend .

    Charlynne, We have grownup together and when you married Pete, we knew he chose the right wife.  His crazy humor could not have been tolerated by anyone besides you!  Pete’s love of music was amazing…there was no one else who knew when the song was number one, who sang it AND the lyrics.    We spanned all 55 years of your marriage, raising our first babies together, spent time in the summers together and reunited during the years you searched for the perfect retirement community.    Pete and Tony hit it off from the very beginning and Pete’s famous “Yo Ant” will live on even his absence.  We loved him and already miss him.  God bless you both.
