Lester A. Peschko a lifelong resident of Tuckerton passed away on Monday November 25th, 2019 at the age of 50.
Lester was a great father, husband, son, brother and friend. He was the type of guy to give you the camo shirt off his back and willing to help anyone at any hour of the day. He was a standout athlete and a Pinelands legend. His love for sports led him to coach his beloved Pinelands Pop Warner boys creating some of the best athletes. He enjoyed being outdoors, fishing, hunting, and taking hunting trips with his Brother and Dad to their cabin in Maine. His dedication and hard work were applied during his career as a Union Ironworker.
All that knew him knew he did a lot of amazing things in his short time here. His greatest accomplishment, however, was his girls; loving them, teaching them about life, supporting them, and even with his tough guy exterior spending hours at cheerleading competitions watching his youngster compete and of course watching them grow into the women they are today.
Lester is predeceased by his father Robert "Red Dog" Peschko.
Survived by his loving family; mother Maryann, his daughters Lorissa Stambaugh and husband Benjamin and Tiffany Peschko and partner Traci, and their mother Tracey Peschko, sister Chrissy Peschko, brother Robert Peschko Jr., nephews Patrick, Shane and Bobby and niece Jackie as well as his countless adoring friends.
