Obituary for Peter K. Botbyl

BOTBYL, Peter K. –76, of North Haledon went to be with his Lord on January 29, 2020. Born in Paterson, and formerly of Prospect Park, he has lived in North Haledon for the past 50 years.

A longtime member of Cedar Hill Christian Reformed Church, Pete served his cherished community as a deacon. Pete especially enjoyed volunteering for Cary Christian Center by picking up donated furniture and loading trucks to be delivered to those in need.

Dear Tanette and Family,
Our sincere sympathy to all on Pete’s passing. Throughout the years I so enjoyed seeing and speaking with Pete. I will always remember his kindness when my parents were transported by ambulance. Pete spoke with them, shared a few stories and smiled with them. May all the happy memories sustain you all in this time of sorrow.
Pete, Rest In Peace ✝️🙏
Doris and Bob Ververs

May Peter rest in the arms of His Lord. I will miss my conversations with Peter at the veterans affairs and at the Memorial day ceremonies. He was a a wonderful gentleman and I will miss the jokes he would tell me. I pray that God will give his family the strength to see them through these troubled days. Ilene Potoak
