A collection of Trimet material from the point of view of a former Trimet bus operator and current Trimet blogger-sorry for all the typo's no time to proof read this stuff
Good going Alan Morgan, I hope your proud of yourself....
Actually brought a tear to my eye!
He was a nice guy.I wish that he could have enjoyed his retirementlonger.You made a wise choice Al.
Pete and I spoke a couple of times following his departure from TriMet.I will never forget his words desribing his sadness in how he was exited from an agency, career, and the operators that he loved and was so deeply proud ofI am devasted by this news. I remain forever grateful and humbled by Pete's kindness and good will.Rest in Peace.
The notice I read said that Pete passed away on Saturday June 30. So sad. 40 plus years on the job, only 4 months of retirement.
I always enjoyed the check rides with Pete. He was always very positive and supportive.
The devil has got a hold of management and there is not an escape route. Why did he die, smoker & no exercize?
His life was Trimet obviously, they booted him out and he just died.
Pete has two daughters, both beautiful. The youngest daughter was disabled and confined to a wheelchair. She adored her Dad and her Dad showed her the world.A beautiful family he had--I will miss him.
Another example of how retirees don't always get to enjoy those benefits; at least he made it to retirement
When I started, another trainer (30+ years) told me that the average operator dies after 6 months of retirement (this "is" the standard), which "is" sad, and Pete "was" a good guy, always had a positive word for operators. His type of suport staff "will" be missed. "We" all have to protect "our" health at "all" costs.
Do you know if there will be a funeral service for Pete?
Have no idea on services
