Pete passed away in Ojai, California. Ojai is a Native American name for the moon.

Pete even touched the lives of the Choco Indians in Panama. He spent time with them in survival training many years ago and was with them again just before his passing. The Choco Indian chief, Antonio Zarco, made him an honorary Choco Indian. The Choco Indians have a rite when a prominent member dies, whereby the spirit goes to the moon.
