Local singer Pete Looney, who has been providing entertainment across the county and DC Metro Area for years, has passed away according to a post on his Facebook page. His children, Pat and Monika, released the following statement announcing a Celebration of Life that will take place on Sunday, December 11th:
“Hello dear friends. Sadly our father Pete Looney has passed away. He went peacefully surrounded by loved ones. We are deeply sorry to everyone who knew him, loved him, and who will grieve his loss. Your friendship and support meant the world to him!
We will be holding a Celebration of Life in his honor on December 11th, from 7-9pm at Windridge Vineyards. It was his wish that we all gather to celebrate and give him a positive send off. He was an optimist, a truly caring person, and an absolute rockstar to the very last day.
– Pat and Monika Looney”
The Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday, December 11th at 7pm-9pm at Windridge Vineyards (15700 Darnestown Road). Light bites and some wine will be provided. The event organizers ask anyone who is planning to attend to mark “going” on the Facebook event page so that they can plan accordingly.
