Waldo Family, Pete and Carolyn were the first friends we made in 1956 when Pete and Don started their teaching careers in the Ferguson-Florissant District. They coached basketball together at Florissant Jr. High and if I remember correctly the first year that McCluer North opened in 1971. I have so many wonderful memories of those years. I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Pete was truly "one of the good ones". Nancy Jones (Don Jones 1934-2018)

The City of Branson Police Department would like to send condolences to the family of Pete Waldo. Unfortunately, we only knew Pete for a few years. Pete was a huge supporter of the Branson Police Department. In 2018, Pete voiced his desire to team up with the police department and he assumed a leadership role in hosting the very first National Night Out event in his neighborhood. Pete believed it was important to know your neighbors and to work together as a team to accomplish good things for his neighborhood and for the City of Branson. Pete enjoyed giving back to his community and helping others when the opportunity came his way. The Branson Police Department has lost a friend and partner. He will be greatly missed. Chief Jeff Matthews and the Branson Police Family

I’m so,sorry to hear about Pete. I taught with him in the p.e. Dept at Mcluer North long ago and have wonderful memories of our time there. Great guy. I have spoken to him recently and he had told me to get to bingo at the lions club since I recently built a home in Hollister. Unfortunately, and sadly, I missed him. My condolences to the family. Dennis Henley,

Tim Currinder McCluer North Class of 1975 Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.I am proud to have played basketball for Mr. Waldo for 3 years. I learned many valuable lessons from him which have served me well as an adult. I wish I had taken some of those lessons to heart much sooner, especially on the basketball court in high school, but the fact is the lessons got through and have made a difference in my life. "Pete" was dedicated, hard working and in hindsight, a very patient coach who had our best interests at heart. I hope you all are able to take comfort in the fact that he made a difference in a lot of young lives, including mine. Thanks for sharing him with us.
