Long-time youth soccer administrator Bill Peet, who was associated with the Long Island Junior Soccer League and Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association spanned nearly 45 years, has passed away.

Peet served the LIJSL as a member of the board of directors for 30 years, 25 as treasurer.

“Our thoughts go out to his family during this difficult time,” the LIJSL stated on Twitter.

“Bill Peet has established an amazing legacy of volunteering with the LIJSL,” ENYYSA president Richard Christiano said in 2015. “From the days of the LIJSL office in Hicksville, then Plainview and now the office in Ronkonkoma today, Bill would spend many nights there volunteering so that the league could continue to provide a top soccer program for all its players.”

Peet became involved with the sport just after the start of the youth soccer boom in the mid-1970s when he registered his twin sons, William and Michael, in the Brentwood Soccer Club. He became their coach with the Brentwood Jets and the travel team played in the LIJSL. Peet went on to coach numerous Brentwood teams, both boys and girls, as well as the LIJSL Select Program. He also received the National “C” Coaching License.

The Brentwood, N.Y. resident also was LIJSL registrar and served on the appeals committee and the rules committee. He was inducted into the LIJSL Hall of Fame in 1999.

His day job was owning Lundgren & Mause, a Property and Casualty Insurance Agency in Jericho, N.Y..

“I met a lot of wonderful people who helped me as treasurer,” Peet said in 2015. “And I loved to watch the kids play.”

Peet is survived by his sons and daughter Karen.
