In Memory of my good friend, Pete Schroeder

Pete's father was the original owner of this fine rifle. Pete contacted me via my web site to talk about the rifle and after a few phone conversations we got to know each other. His passion was photography and I asked him if he would be interested in doing the photos for my book, which I was working on at the time. He was happy to do so. I packed up several Sheridan's to photograph and took a trip to his home in Wisconsin. He graciously gave me a place to stay for a few days. The trip was planned during the big Oshkosh AirVenture air show. Pete knew that I loved airplanes and it just so happened that he was a photographer for AirVenture. He treated me to two days at AirVenture and made me feel like a VIP. We planned to visit again the following year but Pete passed before then. He previously had a tumor that returned. I am blessed that Pete and I became friends; even for a short time; and will always miss him. Shanti my friend!
