The thing that I remember the most, is with my brothers carrying a Christmas tree from City Line . Peter always talked about it. He was so happy .
Things come and go in your mind, we would visit my mother and you could see the smile on her face when she saw him . She called him " Beany Boy" and she called Harold" Hair Bred Harry". I will miss him dearly. May he have peace now and be with his family in heaven.
Loving you big sister Estelle.

Dear Nantista family,

Lisa and I send our love and sympathy. We are sorry for your loss and hope the good memories will endure several lifetimes.

I have some great childhood memories of going to Mets games with Uncle Pete and cousin Bobby. I doubt we ever saw them win a game, but oddly, those are very distinct memories I have. I am appreciative I had cousins and uncles who spent time with me as a younger child. Uncle Pete will always be remembered as a kind and gentle person.

I know these times are hard, but if we are here for you if you need anything.

Love,

Justin & Lisa Dolce

Uncle Peter had great taste in movies. He would always let us watch all the Cannon films from Bronson to Breakin’. He was funny, had a big personality. He was the quintessential definition of a cool uncle. I love you Uncle Peter, thank you for all your wisdom and jokes. Blessings to all of the Nantista family.
