Pete was born to Peter and Agatha (Schwab) Jahner on November 23, 1925, in Linton, ND where he was raised on his family farm west of Linton. He attended a country school with his brothers and sisters, and he often talked about the fun he had with his family while growing up. Pete joined the North Dakota Army National Guard in Linton, ND in 1947. He served on active duty during the Korean War from 1951 to 1952 in Tokyo, Japan, with the 500th Military Intelligence Service Group as a Motor Sergeant. He was activated from 1961 to 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis and stationed at Ft. Riley, KS. He retired in 1968 from the National Guard as a Master Sergeant. On June 28, 1958, he married Rose Ternes in Linton, ND and together they raised five children. Pete built more than 50 homes and businesses in Emmons County that included the current Webo's Restaurant, the Linton Clinic and Prairie Rose Apartments at the hospital, Don's Motel, and K & H Electric Building, to name a few. He was talented in his craft, and later in life made many beautiful furniture pieces for his family. He was always striving to improve his skills in woodworking, and he was currently a member of the Dakota Woodturners at Bismarck State College. Pete was an active church member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church. He loved spending time with his family, grandchildren and friends. He also loved bread with jelly, pie, and working in his shop. Wherever he went, he always made a new friend. He always joked that after he turned 80, he would not have any more rules and the first 100 years of life were the hardest. Pete was a wonderful dad and grandpa and he will be dearly missed by his children, Mike (Candice), Colorado Springs, CO, Laure (Steven) Shilts, Chippewa Falls, WI, Peter (Lisa), Jim, Greg (Tanya) all of Bismarck, ND. Seven grandchildren, Joshua Jahner, Reno, NV, Kayla Jahner, Bismarck, ND, Emily Jahner, Fargo, ND, Ellie, Erin, Ava, and Jacob Jahner, all of Bismarck, ND. One sister, Marie Feist, Bismarck, ND, and several in-laws, including Irene Jahner, Linton, ND, Joe Lauinger, Linton, ND, Sis Jahner, Bismarck, ND, Tess (Ternes) and Neil Krumm, Fargo, ND, Merna Ternes, Minneapolis, MN, Susie Ternes, Minneapolis, MN, Tony Ternes, Zimmerman, MN and Eddie and Lois Ternes, Newhall, IA. He was preceded in death by his loving wife Rose in 2007, six brothers, Frank, Christian, Lawrence, Gregory, Barthelmous, and John and five sisters, Agatha, Regina, Anna, Elizabeth and Katherine.
