Pete enjoyed working on his cars and trucks, tinkering in his garage, gardening, and tending to his property.  He was very active with his children and grandchildren’s activities and sports and was considered their number one fan.  Pete was always there to help whenever needed by his children, grandchildren, friends, and family. He enjoyed spending time with his fellow retirees, breakfast buddies and friends. Pete enjoyed baking and will be remembered for his Mexican bread and cookies. He was looking forward to helping his friend Joe Gutierrez with the Fiesta Golf Tournament.  Above all, his pride and joy was his family.

Pete married Gloria Sandate at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church on June 16, 1979.  They have three children, Pamela Munoz, Kristina Munoz and Mark (Stacy) Munoz, and two grandchildren Matias and Mya Bledsoe.  He is also survived by his siblings, Teresa (Charles) Wilson, Victoria (Jesus) Gutierrez, Rebecca (Ruben) Cruz, Lino Munoz, Buena Munoz, and Josephine Alfrey, and a sister-in-law Sally Munoz. He is also survived by many nephews, nieces, godchildren, and close family friends the Lockers.
