Pete’s Story

Peter is the son of John and Nancy Frates, grandson of Jerry and Joan D’Alfonso and Jack and Margaret Frates, brother of Jenn and Dan Mayo and Andrew Frates.

He grew up in Beverly, MA and attended St. John’s Preparatory School ’03 and Boston College ’07.  At SJP he was a 4 year member of the football, hockey and baseball teams, a school leader and honor roll student.

At Boston College he majored in communications and history, lived on campus and played for the BC Baseball team becoming their Captain in his senior year. During his college years, he played summer ball in Maryland, Connecticut and Hawaii. After college, he went to Hamburg, Germany to play baseball in the German Baseball League while coaching German youth on the sport.

His passions include playing, watching, coaching, reading about and talking about all sports, travel and boating. Along with his family and his beloved alma maters, the loves of his life are his amazing circles of friends and his beautiful wife Julie whom he married on June 1, 2013 at an oceanfront event in Julie’s hometown of Marblehead, MA.

If you are lucky enough to know Pete, then you already understand what a special person he is.

His warmth, generosity and infectious smile are just a few of the things that make Pete so special.

But words cannot even begin to describe the person Pete is. We felt the only way to capture the true spirit of Pete is through pictures.

So we put together a brief slideshow of some of our favorite moments that we have shared together.

We hope you enjoy it and thank you so much for taking the time to see what Pete means to us.
