I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. I have so many wonderful memories of our trips ‘downtown ‘ for lunch with him, his funny stories and just the sweet gentle man he was. I will never forget him!
I’m thinking of you & sending you all my love. He will be truly missed.
Love Candy ( Mannella & Family).

So very sorry to hear about Peter (I always knew him when I was a kid as my Dad's Cousin Peter but he was actually my Grandfather's 1st Cousin). He was my Dad's Best Man at Mom and Dad's wedding in the late 1950s. We met briefly a year ago at Festa Italia and we talked about my Family's recent trip to Italy (2017) and that we had all visited his home town of Decollatura in Catanzaro, Calabria Italy where my Grandfather was also born. The Picture attached is of a Church we visited, and on the pews are family names of the parishioners, many of which are Marasco's and Scalzo's. It would not surprise me to find out Peter was baptized in this same church.
