Dad was born in New York in 1926. He was the youngest son of Salvatore & Anna Governanti. He had 2 older brothers (Mike & Willie) and 4 older sisters (Mary, Anna, Josie, & Betty). He was married on July 6, 1950 to his beloved wife Carol. They were married for 59 years. He is survived by his 2 daughters (Anna Marie & Debbie); his 3 grandchildren (Theresa, Patrick, & Jennifer); and his 5 great grandchildren (Serenity, Noah, Abigail, Alora & Ashton). Peter brought his family to California on August 6, 1970 and lived in Campbell. His was a long and very productive life. He will certainly be missed but those who know him know he is in a much better place.

My condolences, it’s only in Sonny’s passing that I learn more of our family. My grandfather was Sonny’s brother Michael. Please any family that would like to share a tail of Sonny, please reach out.

I remember Peter in high school when I use to go visit my friend Debbie's parents , Peter and Carol. Peter always had a lot of stories to tell. He was a very caring and loving person. He cared greatly for his family and grand kids. He will be deeply missed! God bless him in heaven! From Joanne and David Wanamaker
