I wish everyone approached life as exuberantly as Mr. Coles! He was always positive and had a smile or laugh to share with those whom he interacted. His life experiences served as his stories of encouragement, support and motivation for others. He always had a book in his hand as a subtle reminder of the importance of educating oneself and proving a platform for conversation on any and all topics. A humble man who I respected tremendously. I only wish the world had more people of the caliber as Mr. Coles.

Peter was one of my first friends at Herndon High School. We bonded over book club, but he ALWAYS stopped me in the hall with a kind word, story, or to talk about what we were reading. He left this world better than he found it.
