In Memoriam


In Memory of

Peter T. (Pete) Caram

December 11, 1947 - August 13, 2018


Peter, “Pete” Caram, 70, of Freehold, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on August 13, 2018 after an inspirational battle with pancreatic cancer.

Peter was born on December 11, 1947 in Brooklyn, NY to the late Thomas and Victoria Caram. Pete graduated from Millbrook High School in 1965, and shortly thereafter enlisted in the United States Air Force. He would go on to serve his country in the Vietnam War from 1966-67.

Upon completion of his service, he joined the Port Authority Police Department in 1973. During this time, he received his Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice from NJIT in 1978. Pete would give 25 years of distinguished service to the PAPD, rising to the rank of Detective Sergeant the head of the New York Port Authority’s Terrorist Intelligence Unit before retiring in 1998.

Pete was considered a national expert in the field of counter terrorism, authoring a book on the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He cross-collaborated with numerous government intelligence agencies sharing his vast expertise in the field.

Pete would be the first to say that his greatest achievement was his loving family. He was a voracious hunter, gun enthusiast, avid golfer, and would never pass up a trip to Atlantic City. He could usually be found on his deck with his family smoking his pipe sharing laughs.

Left to mourn his memory are his beloved wife of 42 years Madeline, his son Christian and wife Alyssa, daughter Courtney and husband Michael, sister Theresa Cincotta, and the absolute joys of his life, grandchildren Giuliana, Henry and James.

In his lifetime, Pete has touched countless lives and will be missed my many.
