May Mr. Peter Jenkins Coles rest in the presence of ALMIGHTY GOD, The LORD JESUS CHRIST, and The HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
Mr. Coles is my first Cousin and our Family considered him to be a "third son." His Uncle, my Father, Malcolm Jenkins, held Pete Coles in very high esteem all of his life, as he was special to our Family in more ways than one.

I am sending my deepest condolences and prayers to Mrs. Coles and to family and friends of Mr. Peter Coles. I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. As the former assistant principal and principal at Herndon High School, I watched firsthand the PROFOUND impact Mr. Coles had on the entire HHS community (students, staff and community) as well as on me.

Mr. Coles was one of the most warm, genuine, and personable individuals I have ever worked with. He always took the time to ask you how you were and truly cared for everyone around him including the students, teachers and parents. We are all blessed to have known such a special man.

So sorry to hear Peter passed away, he was my buddy in school way back in the 40]s Lincoln School, needed a buddy to go out to the playground. Peter also came home at lunchtime to my house because his mom worked as a hygenist in his dad's practice. Lots of happy memories, showed up at a reunion years ago and it was like all the years vanished. Went all through school together, we were friends,

As the school public health nurse at Herndon High, I often worked with him to help students that needed help. Some of the best times, though were when he stopped by for a chat. He was gracious, funny and a wonderful man. Blessings and prayers for Peter's family and friends in this time of loss. May God uphold you and surround you with His peace.

Mr. Coles was a fixture at Herndon High. He knew me by name and I was never officially his student. However, that was the man he was, he seemed to know everyone by name. I remember one day I saw him with flowers and he told me they were for his wife. It wasn't for a special occasion, He said after all the years of marriage it is important to show your wife that you still love her as much

It was a great pleasure seeing and greeting Mr. Coles each day at HHS. His friendly, upbeat personality and joyful, positive attitude made each day at HHS a wonderful experience! He inspired all to become better people. My prayers for the repose of his soul and for the comfort of his family.
