Pete "The General" Petrides

October 18, 1917 ~ June 19, 2019 (age 101)


Our beloved “General” has fallen asleep. Pete “The General” Petrides passed away at home on Wednesday, June 19th, 2019. Pete was born October 18, 1917.

He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and by far a great friend. He was a WW II veteran, owner of the “Wheel Restaurant”, and wrestling and boxing commissioner. He was a Greek immigrant living the American dream.

Pete was always lending a helping hand, from feeding our police officers to feeding the homeless to feeding the Generals in WW II, hence the name General.

Wilshire always had a friendly face, in Pete Petrides, whether it was a good day or bad, Pete’s response would be, “How sweet it is”
