Just a few short days ago, the Fregoso family, and the Fregoso Outdoor Family, lost a beloved member, my fathers brother; Uncle Pete Fregoso. Growing up, my father and his brothers helped lay the foundation for Fregoso Outdoor, by showing all of us kids, the outdoor experience. Uncle Pete was a huge part of that experience. He loved the outdoors; in fact his life’s work was in the outdoors, he loved to hunt, and he loved his family. Uncle Pete was a vet (and with his dry sense of humor would say, “Uncle Sam invited me to a party… That party lasted 2 years!”), so when our family decided to use the outdoor experience to reach out to our vets, through Fregoso Outdoor, not only did Uncle Pete approve, he was our biggest fan. He loved us unconditionally, we love him, and he is deeply missed.
