Terry Chlentzos Keramaris and Vikki Vrettos Fraioli recently visited their Uncle Pete in Palm Springs, CA, while he was recuperating in a rehabilitation center, following hip surgery. This is a short interview with him during his stay there in March 2006.
Peter Clentzos was born in Oakland, CA on June 15, 1909 to parents Diamantis Haralambos Chlentzos and Yanoula Coulentianos from Kythera, Greece.
