Pedro was born in Caguas, Puerto Rico. He moved to Wildwood, NJ over thirty years ago and lived there until his passing. He worked for 34 years as an amusement mechanic for Morey's Piers and was fondly known as the mayor of Wildwood. He greeted everyone with a bright smile on his face and was kind to people. He enjoyed playing the lottery and loved to do simple things like mowing his lawn and yard work. His greatest joy was his family. He sacrificed everything for them and made them happy with his goofy personality. He loved to watch his sons play in their basketball games and cook for them. He was an ordinary man who left an extraordinary mark on this world and was, in the words of his sons, an "absolute legend".
