Peter S. Froden, 57, was born March 20, 1966 at Muhlenberg Hospital in Plainfield, NJ and passed away peacefully at his home in Garwood on July 24, 2023. He is predeceased by his parents Holger and Christine Froden and is survived by his wife Melissa, his sons, Christopher and Matthew, sister Kirsten, all of Garwood, brother Eric of Richmond, VA and step-daughters Jennifer of Mississippi and Ashley of Garwood. Peter graduated from Westfield High School in 1987 where he was a member of the Varsity Football team. He owned a successful third party logistics company, KPCM LLC. Peter was an avid fisherman, and took pride in being the best guide for his family and friends. He preferred watching others catch the big ones, as opposed to himself. What made him happiest was when everyone around him was having fun. Peter always made sure the room was filled with smiles and laughter. He loved playing golf with his sons and his sister and could still out drive all of them. His most special place was “camp” in Monticello NY, spending time with his wife and family and anyone that showed up to be part of the chaos. He will be missed by many friends and the dozens of kids he coached in both baseball and basketball for the Garwood Recreation League. Every child on his team played, scored, and felt part of the team. That will be Peter’s legacy: a thoughtful man remembered for his selflessness and compassion. Visitation and service will be held at Gray Funeral Home 318 East Broad St, Westfield NJ from 4 to 7 pm on Friday July 28th. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T.org) or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (stjude.org). Please go to: www.grayfuneralhomes.com to offer condolences.
