After graduating, he attended NY City College of Technology before completing his degree at Florida’s Southeastern Academy with a degree focused on Travel and Hospitality. Early in his career with The Leading Hotels of the World to Command Airways and then Air Canada, Pedro Sr. has always been in the service of people. However, he found his gift was best served in faith, in God, and in the acceptance of Jesus Christ as his lord and savior. After having been baptized at Baraica Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY — he went on to lead Men’s Ministry, as well as play an active role in both his Baraica Baptist Church and New Life Church communities. Along with his wife, Pedro Sr. enjoyed returning to Haiti on mission trips to support.
Pedro Sr.’s jovial, loyal, and faithful spirit will echo for many generations, and he will be missed by many. For those that grew up with him in Brooklyn he is remembered as the glue that kept his friends together filled with laughter. To those that knew him in Concord he is remembered as a faithful servant who used laughter and sincerity to keep everyone close. To his sons he is known lovingly as “Pops.”
