I write this with a very heavy heart… thousands of us in Door County are morning the loss of our very dear friend, Pete Haen. Pete, 47, died of a massive heart attack a day after routine arthroscopic surgery. Pete was in excellent health and went to the Y nearly every day. He treated everyone as though they were his very best friend. Pete was handsome, athletic, hugely funny and always, always upbeat. He was a loving son, brother, uncle and friend. Always the peacemaker, he never spoke a negative word about anyone. He could turn any ordinary event into a party. He had an infectious laugh and was adored by everyone who knew him. He comes from an extremely close-knit and loving family. His mom, Mary is the head housekeeper here at Egg Harbor Lodge. We were all in shock as the sad news spread yesterday like wildfire. Our prayers go out to the Haen family and all who loved Pete.
We will miss you dear friend,
