A staple in our hearts and in our community, Coach Pete.
From coaching wrestling, years of professional bodybuilding, founding, opening, & operating Krank Systems, performing stand up comedy, being the most selfless + nurturing father, husband, son, brother & friend- your list of accomplishments and the impact you've had on others is inspirational to say the least.
Taking on the role of Coach since 1996, you've dedicated your time to helping generations of people become a better them.
The hearts you've touched, the confidence you've helped build, the love and determination you've passed down to everyone you've coached and even made contact with is endless.
We already know it'll be a sad day in NJ when you + your family move but, we are certain that the spirit you will be leaving behind is strong enough for us to carry.
We will proudly honor you by passing down the wisdom you've passed to us.
There aren't enough "thank yous" to express how grateful we truly are for you. Coach Pete, a humble man full of love, an angel, the mf'ing GOAT - you will be so very missed, and we wish you all best and more in your brave new journey. WE LOVE YOU!
