About Pete Wass
Biography:
I grew up in a very small town where I attended a one room school for my entire grade school education. I was one of 7 in my High School Class at graduation. I served in the USAF from Dec 1962 through Oct 1966; serving in Denver, CO, Warner Robins, GA and Asia for the last two years, based primarily in Japan, at the beginning of the war in SEA.. I had several careers during my working life after my Service, from a Machinetool Rebuilder to a Registered Securities Rep and finally a Town Manager. I worked in Sales, in one form or other, for most of my working years. I retired in August of 2007. The subsequent years have been the best years of my life, so far.
