The Philadelphia Police Boat Team is mourning the death of a fellow police officer, our coach and loyal friend, Pedro (Pete) Vargas.
On the evening of December 3, 2013, Pete passed away unexpectedly. We are all shocked as Pete was fit and full of life and love. Pete always brought a smile to your face with his humorous stories, jokes and silly behavior.
Pete was the ultimate Ambassador of the team. Pete had a heart of gold, always offering a helping hand to fellow paddlers in the boating community. More importantly, he was an outstanding son, loving husband, father and grandfather. Our hearts go out to Pete's family.
The Vargas family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Pete will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
