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 servant locally, nationally, and spiritually, Pete’s work ethic was one of his strongest characteristics. He volunteered for the Haledon Ambulance Corps, spent 25 years with the North Haledon Police Department, 33 years with the Paterson Fire Department EMS, and proudly served his country in the US Army National Guard before joining American Legion Post 428. 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.
