  1. So sorry for your loss. We loved Pete Boykin(screaming Eagle). We had many years of talking on our Cb’s together. He was a good man and friend.

  2. I am so going to miss talking to you Uncle Pete and hearing your Air Force stories and stories from your growing up years. I will always think of you with your Screaming Eagle pickup and the Oooga horn that had all the neighborhood dogs barking. You were the best Uncle ever and the only one I had. I’m thankful that you won’t have to suffer any longer, but I wish you could have stayed just a while longer. R.I.P. Uncle Pete until we see you again.
