    I am so sad hearing of Peter’s passing. He taught across the hall from me at Oakhaven HS.
    I marveled at the collection of empty drink cans building a high wall…I’m sure it taught something about math!!!!!
    Always in every circumstance he was a caring and concerned teacher working diligently to make his students’ futures better.
    He will be missed by so many students, athletes and faculty members in all the places he worked as teacher and coach.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family.

    My prayers are with the Bolgeo family. May God give you the comfort and strength you need today and in the days to come.
    I worked with Peter Bolgeo at Raleigh Egypt High during the regular school year and summer school. He was a respected co-worker and a wonderful teacher and friend. He expected and encouraged greatness from his students. He lived his faith by being a man of his word and always tying to be fair and kind to those around him. He was a blessing to all that came in contact with him.
    Some students have described him as a teacher that was cool, funny and mean, because when it came down to those assignments, you better have them.
    May God be with you.

    My prayers are with your family. Mr. Bolgeo was an awesome teacher. He taught my boys at Santa Fe. It was then we learned that he was relative to the family at Bolgeo lake in Shelby County. They all knew my grandparents and daddy.
    My God Bless Ya’ll

    Peter and I grew up together. We spent much of our childhood at OLS, Memphis Catholic, Greers Ferry leading snipe hunts, fishing and just being boys. I was part of his family. Yes, I have many stories about his dad too. He was a good man. I can remember many times where I told Pete to go eat some candy or drink a coke. We knocked on plenty of strangers doors asking for some sugar for Peter. It was no big deal. We were kids and diabetes was just something we worked around. It didn’t stop us from doing anything. This never slowed Peter down a day in his life.

    I left TN after high school and I have lived many places since. I didn’t do a great job of keeping up with Peter or his family. I will regret not getting to see him one more time. During our last conversation I heard about his family. I couldn’t have been happier for him. He loved his work, what he was doing for kids as a coach and teacher. Honestly, I was pretty jealous of what he was doing to help kids. He cared deeply about his family and couldn’t have been a prouder dad and husband.

    Peter was my friend. His loss saddens me on many levels but I know he and his dad are already debating one topic or another already. Pete, just give in. Your dad always wins. Please!

    To Mrs. Bolgoe, Teresa, Mary and Joann, I am sorry. I know you guys will rally together and take care of one another as you have always done. You guys will be in my prayers!

    Peter has touched many lives and he certainly left his mark on everyone he met along the way.

    Rest well my friend. You have done well.
