Deepest sympathy for the loss of your father. Many fond memories of Pete when he was playing Euchre, dancing, laughing, having fun and enjoying life. He loved all of you. May the love of family and friends and your memories bring you comfort. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

We did not know Mr Datsko personally, but have known his son Gary for many years. Gary is a true testament of what a wonderful man and Father Mr Datsko was. RIP, Sir.
