Sadden to find out Pete has passed away. My father (Antonino) and Pete were first cousins. Pete was my Godfather.
Over the years, my family lost touch with the Amalfi family after their move from NJ to Florida. As a child, I remember family visits to Nick and Nancy’s home and how warm and friendly Pete was.
Another fond memory of Pete……when he was in charge of getting Ginny to her surprise baby shower (pregnant with Nancy). Mission accomplished! He kept it a surprise.
The members of the Bonarrigo Family send loving prayers and condolences to you all.
May you find comfort in the loving memories of Pete and know he continues to live in the presence and Glory of God.

My memory of Pete was sitting out on the lanai of the beautiful house they built in Cape Coral. We talked racing, my favorite subject. Of course he was a car guy and I so loved that we had that in common. My friend Robin was one of my biggest influences at the bank. I admired her Jersey Girl attitude and how her and Pete conquered some hard times but came through them even stronger than ever. I remember Robin posting the pictures of the custom made stick and twig railing in the gorgeous house in SC. He knew how much she wanted it and he delivered! They were perfect together.
I always thought of him as a big teddy bear and from all the other memories shared here, I was right. Grumpy and gruff on the outside but soft and squishy on the inside. I am so sorry his life was cut short. I just lost my sister in December at the same age as Pete. Too good to be gone at that age. To the entire family, I send my love and hugs to you. May the wonderful memories of Pete carry you forward.. Until you meet again.

My memories of Pete and things that remind me of Pete.Many many so I will start from the beginning.1977 or 78.My new paper route.Pete and Tony were my first stop at the station.They just started there and I just started.Putting air in my bike tire and the bike fell over with all the papers falling out and Pete yelling to Tony and Ginny “ Help the kid out will ya!” They helped me.First time I remember any grown up treating me nice and not like a kid who didn’t matter.We became friends.Got to the point that I would just hurry up to get my papers done just so I could hang out with them.I didn’t even care about hanging with my friends.Pete would call me Humphrey!! I didn’t mind it at all because I knew that was his way of showing he liked me.I wanted to pump gas desperately! Finally the day came and Pete said “Humphrey you got this one?” And I was off!! Now 2 jobs.Papers and pumping gas! Worked there for years! I remember them letting me drive the beautiful tow truck in at night and me ripping off the drivers side mirror and them not killing me! I remember Pete finding me my first car.Pete painting pinstripes on that car for me.I remember him being a great Dad who would go to Philadelphia for the best care his daughter could get!I remember him and Robin picking me up so I could work during some bad times.I remember drinking my first coffee with Pete,going for rides to the bank and diner.I remember cutting the station grass,Reggie candy bars,Lipton ice tea and WPLJ and good ole 70s rock and roll! I remember me not going there for awhile and when I did Tony said “This is me and Pete’s last day at the station.” I turned around so Tony couldn’t see me cry like a lil kid again.I remember Pete having some crazy ideas like Jackie Gleason would.Some worked some wouldn’t.One that didn’t work was when he wanted a storage tank installed at Ginny’s house with a pump to supply enough water pressure so they could shower comfortably.What Pete and I didn’t realize was a vacuum breaker

Our deepest sympathies for all of you; Robin, Mallory, Nancy, Gina, Tony, and every family member and friends that were left behind. Our hearts are broken. Pete, you will always be that "Archie Bunker" to me. You always made me laugh. You always came off as a tough guy, but underneath that tough guy persona, was a genuine caring and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. You had a heart that was as big as your smile and you were a big softy when it came to an animal. You will be missed. Until we meet again my friend, R.I.P..

Dad....

Im holding back tears as I write this to you. I never thought our time together would be cut so short and sudden. When ever I had a question or a problem I would call you and say “dad, I have a question”. You were always there. Im grateful I got to spend the last 10 months living 12 doors down from you. I miss you coming into my back yard to check out how Jay is doing with our grass lol. I miss calling you to ask how you make your ziti and meatballs for the 100th time. I miss you teasing Jake about how he never sits still. I miss you watching jake and I walk home while you stand on the sidewalk to make sure we made it. I miss you yelling at Luna. I know you are in heaven with grandpa and grandpa all together eating your favorite things without worrying about your sugar. Jay will keep your grass green, i promise! Jake made you a cross and said he misses grandpa because you are kind and helpful. I love you always and forever. Love, Nan

Pete is as real as they come...a down to earth guy with a soft kind heart ❤️
We will miss you with all our hearts...

Each moment I've shared with Pete was full of fun and laughter. Growing up, I would love each visit to the house in Millstone. He would always ask how I was. Pete was always caring and loving. I just remember him always making me smile and laugh. He would be talking with my parents and all I could see were smiles and hear all the laughter from him telling stories. Though I'm sure I had no idea what was being talked about but I do know every moment was unforgettable. I'm so grateful he took me fishing when we visited the family in South Carolina. Love and miss you Pete. My thoughts and prayers to your family ❤

A big ole bear with a big ole heart. Eyes to match the skies. We weren’t friends long but we became fast friends. First lasagna we ever had with eggs and peas..delicious! Our hearts are broken, gone too soon. Our deepest sympathies Robin and family. He will truly be missed.

Love,
Donna & Tom

I had the privilege of working with Nancy at the SunTrust Freedom Park office for quite a few years. She started out as a teller, and then moved over to get her cross-training as a customer service rep with me. Boy, did we have fun! I never did work with Robin, but I knew her through several of my good friends. Nancy and I have kept in touch occasionally via Facebook, and I was shocked to hear of Pete's passing. Please know that my husband Tim and I are praying for all of you, and that God is with you through this most difficult of times. We are here if you need us. Love in Christ, Tim and Gwen Sampson
