  • I worked with Pete for 7 years and enjoyed and appreciated every conversation and interaction. Pete was a real pleasure to work with, stood up for what was right, and made sure things worked smoothly. He was a fed with real integrity and simplified the life of those of us doing work under and around him, always with sincerity and grace, and usually with a smile and a joke. We’ll all miss Pete very much.

    I had the pleasure of working with Pete for well over a decade and I can say without question he was one of the most astute and caring colleagues I’ve ever worked with. He was known for tackling even the most significant challenges and coming out the other side with success and a smile. His ORNL friends will remember him with respect, admiration, warmth, and a smile as big as his was.

  • I first met Pete several years ago when at the Nevada Test Site for a field campaign with several of my co-workers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). He and I immediately hit it off, having been in the Navy as a common factor. I always looked forward to seeing and talking with Pete during our trips to the Test Site. Pete will be greatly missed by all of us.

  • You were always a reliable voice of reason and a consummate team player. Words cannot express the deep void your sudden departure leaves behind. Rest in peace and I see you on the other side.

    Peter was a great guy to work with when we were at NNSS. He was a big supporter of NPTEC and always took the time to build a team atmosphere that included the federal side, the staff and the visiting scientists.

  • Pete was my neighbor and friend for almost 5 years since I moved to Pahrump. Pete was a very special guy. Whenever I would see him and Marti sitting on the front porch, I would be so happy to go have, an always interesting conversation. Always ending with Pete saying “God Bless You”
    He was looked over the neighborhood all the time. He looked over the neighborhood with intent. Nothing went on that he didn’t know about. Whenever anything was going on, he knew.
    I am so grateful to have been blessed to have known Pete for even just a little part of his life.
    God Bless you Pete

  • Pete Munding enabled difficult and vital work to be accomplished at his beloved “site”. He was proud of this and I hope that his family is proud of it too. Pete’s work will be missed and many of us will have to work harder to fill the void. More importantly, Pete will be missed for his smile and his goodness.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Pete on several projects at the NNSS. The best part of my day was often a sunny greeting from Pete. He was knowledge, connected, and committed to our success. I will miss Pete very much.

    Pete was a friend and colleague for decades of my career. He made us all better and more successful in our work. He was a wonderfully compassionate and sensitive and always looking out for me. I will miss his smile, insight and witty remarks. He always reminded us all that we were the luckiest people in the world to have the opportunity to do this work. I am thankful for the time we had. My sincere condolences to all of Pete’s family.
