In the mid 1950s, Pete moved with his new wife, Yvette Juliette, to a thriving Southern California. In 1960 Pete moved his family, along with son Andre and daughter Gisele, to the beautiful community of La Crescenta to pursue a career of building custom homes. Pete built their custom home at the top of Dunsmore and the family lived there for almost 40 years. Currently this home houses the Ranger Station for the George Deukmejian Wilderness Park.
Pete retired to Southern Pines, N.C. in 2006 to pursue his lifelong equestrian dream of equestrian fox hunting. Throughout his life, Pete was a fine established horseman, showing horses in jumping competitions all over.
