Pedro retired from Inland Steel Company in 1986 after 38 years of service. He was a proud Korean War U.S. Army Veteran. Pedro enjoyed watching baseball (both Sox and Cubs), his bowl of ice cream, and tinkering on cars and anything mechanical. He always smiled and greeted all his children’s friends with a “Hey” and a big hug. Pedro is now in Heaven making all the angels laugh and will be missed here on Earth.
