Pete was born in San Fernando, CA in 1954 to Mario and Eileen Corti and raised in Granada Hills, CA. After graduating high school, he enlisted in the United States Army and served his country from 1972 to 1975 as a medical specialist. After his service he moved back to Granada Hills for several years before relocating to Mohave Valley, AZ. Pete was employed at the Southern California Edison power plant in Laughlin, NV.

During his time in Oceanside he served at Calvary Chapel Vista church and rode with the motorcycle fellowship. Pete and Theresa moved back to Arizona to be closer to family and helped form the Colorado River Chapter of Bikers for Christ. As the Chapter Elder he continued to be a faithful servant to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
