Peter B. “Hormone” Schlette, Jr., a patch holder with the Lake County, Florida chapter of the Warlocks Motorcycle Club, died September 30, 2012 of wounds suffered in a gunfight with members of another motorcycle club, also called the Warlocks, in the parking lot of a Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in Winter Springs, Florida. Schlette was pronounced dead at the scene.

Details of the gun battle remain unclear three weeks after the tragic event. Schlette was a member of a major Florida based motorcycle club that wears a logo that represents a Phoenix or Warbird. The four men arrested at the scene that day are members of a Philadelphia based club that wears a Harpy patch.

A spokesman for the Florida based club said about the shooting, “With all due respect…our club, based in Florida, chooses to maintain an ‘air of silence’ in these matters and not make any public statement.” The spokesman went on to say that “none of the press stories are accurate” and confirmed that, “Three of the shooters are in fact ex-members out in bad standings from the Florida based Warlocks Motorcycle Club.”

Peter Schlette was born June 3, 1962. He lived in Denham Springs, Louisiana where he owned and operated Bad Bird Trucking. He was a member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Denham Springs and he was buried a week after he died in a private service in Evergreen Memorial Park.

His passing is grieved by his wife, Jennifer Oswald; his parents, Peter Schlette, Sr. and Ruth E. Doyle Schlette; his daughter, Grace Elle Schlette; his son, Peter B. Schlette, III; his step-daughter, Elyssa Mitchum; his sisters Teresa Fuqua and Joanne Danna; his brother Michael Schlette; his nephews; Keeno Fuqua Jr., Landon Schlette and Matthew Danna; his nieces Jessica Fuqua Mason, Ashley Schlette, Sarah Schlette, and Katie Danna; and his brothers in the Warlocks Motorcycle Club.

His family requests that memorial donations be made in his name to the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church Building Fund, 865 Hatchell Lane, Denham Springs, LA 70726.

Peter Schlette died bravely before his time. He was 50-years-old.

Requiscant In Pace

    Pete was my god father and uncle… I was the apple of his eye until he had a son and I was cool with that because it wasn’t. A girl i didn’t want nobody to steal my thunder lol… When Grace was born I was so upset because she was a girl and I told him she will. Steal my thunder his reply no you two are my perfect storm… His death rocked me to my core I took it harder than my mother passing.. He was the person who gave us Christmas when. My dad was away he made sure my siblings and I were always good… I miss him so much I named my youngest son after him Jason blane humphrey he is my little hormone and he reminds me so much of my uncle smart and don’t take shit from no-one… My family still suffers from this loss.. They say it gets easier with time but I feel like it gets harder.. I have never seen my father cry the way I seen him weep and scream from the loss of his brother.. We have a whole in our family that can never be filled… God I miss him…
