   Pete grew up in Ferrisburgh on the family farm with all his brothers and sisters.  Pete was the youngest of six children.  He graduated from VUHS and attended a Trade School in CT.  He soon settled back on the family farm and married his sweetheart from Addison Marjorie Scott.

Want to send out my deepest condolences to my second mother and basically my adopted family for many years of my adolescent life… I pray you’re all doing well and hope you all can remember the good times you had all Shared with pete, (The old man.) While he was here with us. I can remember many days and nights at your home making everlasting memories on your farm, in your feilds, and in your home where we would create such memorable moments away from the hustle and bustle of the city life… I wish I was able to attend the services but with the way things have been on earth the past couple years and with having my own family at home to worry about it wasn’t possible to make that happen but You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers, and I look forward to seeing you all this spring/summer for sure! I love you Aunt Mage 😁 Love you Brad,Jeff,Laurie, and Cary… I will always be here for any of you just please keep in touch! Love you! ~Jesse Godin and Family. πŸ•ŠπŸ•Šβš˜βš˜πŸ„πŸ„πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½
