Condolences to the entire Coles family
Peter Coles was a beacon of light, who made everyone smile as he made his rounds through Herndon High School's hallways. I send my love and prayers and know he's doing the same up in Heaven❤

Peter Coles was a great man, a gentleman and the impact he had on the students and adults at Herndon High can't be measured. He is one of the greatest persons I've ever known.

We will never say goodbye to Mr. Cole, who never left the creases of our hearts. In our thoughts, he shall always be alive. In our prayers, he shall always be included. He was the sunshine of my day, and alway will be when I think

Heaven is a little safer now that Pete is there.:-)
We ALL loved him here at Herndon High School! He impacted so many of our lives during his time as one of our Security Specialists.
I will never forget the graduation speech he gave to the Class of 2002. He comforted and inspired those kids, (my older son among them), and made sure they knew that even amongst the evil in the world, after 9/11, THEY would turn it around and

My sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Coles. He was a truly great man with such a wonderful soul that touched everyone he met. He was one of my favorite people to sit down and have a chat with when I worked at Herndon HS.
