Harold, Peter John
May God welcome Peter John Harold, 29 of Andover NJ with open arms into his heavenly Kingdom. Peter passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday June 24th, 2020.
Peter was born in Edison NJ and lived in Carteret until he was 2 years old. Peter grew up in Lake Lenape Andover Twp. He is a 2009 graduate of Newton High School. Peter had a long career as a Union Sprinkler Fitter with Local 696, in Newark. A gifted mechanic Peter enjoyed working on his 240sx rarity car that he had since he was 16 years old. He always loved tweaking this car. He loved being outside and riding motorcycles, dirt biking, snowboarding, his two quads, fishing and living freely.
He enjoyed pranking his sisters and using them as paintball targets. Peter was a gear head; he loved taking apart his cars and quad and rebuild them into a better version. Since he was a child, he was busy building his Star War Lego Land to his grand K-nex models. He bought an old house in Mine Hill and tore every wall, floor, and etc. to construct it to his vision.
Peter was happy and felt accomplished when he finished his loft apartment above his garage. He would always research and YouTube to educate himself on almost any aspect of his project. He considered this “his meditation”. He was talented and was so humble in his personal accomplishments. He had a special twinkle in his eye when he smiled. He had a quick wit and would often make you laugh. Peter genuinely loved and appreciated his friends and family. His puppy Shetland Collie “Marty” was he special companion.
Peter was predeceased by paternal grandparents John and Mary Harold and his maternal grandfather Joseph Seboalo. Survivors include his loving parents Peter A Harold and Lisa (Seboalo) Harold. His sisters Heather Harold and Petrina Harold, and his nephew Roman Lucas. His grandmother Marie Sebolao along with many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Eventually they go where they must. Not where you want them to.”
