What a great guy. I just came across this today, living far from NJ now. Doc was a terrific guy and a great coach, one of the pillars I will always remember from high school.

Dear Mrs Peifer,

James Hendy class of 1987. With my deepest condolences, your husband was a very big influence in my young life at the time. He was a fabulous math teacher that enabled me to breeze through my freshman year in college. But, moreover he was a mentor, who always tried to steer young minds in the right direction. I will always remember "Doc" as I was somewhat of a pain to him, he wanted me to run, I wanted to pole vault! For 3 yrs his theory proved correct, in the 4th I think we came to an understanding and I went to the state finals and captured 3rd place. I will always remember when he told me (paraphrasing of course) " ok I guess you knew what you were doing" but without him I never would never have made it to that point. Many people can't even name one high school teacher, but rest assured I have never forgotten Doctor Peiffer! with my sympathies, James Hendy class of 1987

Coach Peiffer, was a coach ahead of his time, although his demeanor was one of calm support and guidance he was determined to drive us to excellence within ourselves. His practices spoke for themselves without loud commands, just good old fashion WORK.
My prayers and thoughts go out to you.

Cross Country and Track gave me purpose in high school. 30 years later I remember 15 miles a day in both summers and winters teaching me perseverance, discipline and instilling pride. I owe Coach a great debt.

My most sincere condolences at your loss.
