I had read early that Pete had passed but wasn't ready to say anything until now. I got to know Pete while at our Warrant Officer Advance course at McClellan, along with all the other guys/gals who attended. Not only was it an interesting class but Pete and I became good friends, and we were both single and unattached which lead to some great times and dating adventures. We stayed in touch until he retired from active duty but we did visit each other after we had found our brides. Pete was an exceptional person with a great talent of knowledge and talk. He would have been a great English comic with his sense of humor. I will remember Pete, very well, indeed.

I believe Pete and I attended the CID Basic Course at Fort McCellan, together, and then crossed paths numerous years later at FLETC in Georgia. In fact, the wife and I took him home to Fort Campbell after graduation from Fort McCellan. We had fun together over a few bourbons. We must be youngsters to a lot of you!

Sorry to hear about losing Pete. I never really worked with Pete, but got to know him enough to really appreciate him as a friend and collegue. Wish he was still around.

I am very sorry to hear that Pete has passed away. I served with Pete in CID and also at the OIG, DoD. Pete was a gentleman and a well respected agent. He was always willing to assist his fellow agents to accomplish the investigative mission.

I will always remember Pete as a friend and a very professional agent.

Rest in Peace my friend and may God bless you and your family.

Respectfully,
Chuck

"To All:


It is with great sadness that I inform you that Mr. Peter T. Black, a member of the OIG family, passed away on Monday, October 11, 2010.

For the past 30 years, Peter also taught public administration, management, emergency management, and criminal justice at various colleges and universities. Pete's enthusiasm and dedication to his profession never waned. In his 40-year career in law enforcement, his intent was 'to make the world just a little safer.'

Pete was my polygrapher when I was Ops at Ft. Hood back in the early 80's. He was a dedicated person with a good sense of humor. Rest in peace my friend and God bless you and your family.

So sorry to hear of the death of Pete Black
today. When I heard about Pete having his heart attack I did a quick search looking for any information on his heart attack and found this link to a speech Pete gave some time back. The speech is Pete Black all the way with all his smiles, frowns, funny side and real side. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family...

Pete Black passed away on October 11 as a result of a heart attack he suffered one hour after retiring from DCIS on October 1, 2010. Pete served 20 years in the Army and 20 years with DCIS. Pete was 60 years old.

Plans are being made for a service at Arlington National Cemetery.

Please keep Pete's wife Trudy and his family in your thoughts and prayers for God's comfort during this most difficult time.

Pete was a polygraph examiner with CID and DCIS and finished his career as a criminal investigator with the DoD IG Office of Professional Responsibility where he worked internal misconduct investigations. Pete also worked as a DCIS firearms instructor and taught college classes at the graduate and undergraduate level. He was well respected and always well informed on law enforcement and investigative topics. It was always interesting to share stories over a cup of coffee at the cafeteria with Pete.
