Pete Pavusek

On February 3rd, 2022 a beloved husband, father, son, grandfather, teacher and coach entered his eternal field of dreams where the sun shines, the sky is a cloudless blue, and the field an emerald Green. Pete passionately loved his family, friends, players and students.

Pete was an admired Baseball Coach for 28 years at Johnson County High School. He led the Longhorn Baseball Team to 337 wins during his tenure. His coaching on the field is no comparison to the life coaching he instilled in all of his players. Each player had a high admiration for Coach P.

Besides his love for Baseball, Pete also had a love for Car Shows. He traveled thousands of miles to competitively show his 2005 Chevy Silverado. Pete won numerous awards but his greatest reward was the life-long friends he met along the way.

Pete was born on December 13, 1969 to the late Peter Thomas Pavusek, Sr. and Barbara Corley Pavusek, in addition to his father he was preceded in death by his father-in-law Claude Warren.

Those left to cherish his memory are his Mother Barbara Pavusek, Wife Diane Pavusek, Sons Petie and Peyton Pavusek, Isaac (Holli) and Aaron (Krista) Osborne. Grandsons Eston and Waylon Osborne and Lane due in July. Mother-In-Law Faye Warren, Sister-In-Law Debbie (Melvin) Humphrey and cherished Nephews and Nieces.
