Peter Michael Simonetti loving son, grandson, brother, uncle, cousin and beloved friend to all died on May 8, 2022 after a short battle with cancer.
He was born on April 25, 1949 to the late Michael and Florence Simonetti of the Bronx, New York. He was a devout Catholic. His interest in the catholic religion started while attending Saint Thomas Aquinas grammar school in the Bronx, where he served as an Alta Boy for the Saint Thomas Aquinas Church. His interest continued at the Church of Santa Maria in the Bronx until his waning days. He enjoyed life to the fullest, was always the life of the party, and was an extremely active and social member of the community. You could always see him out and about doing the things he loved in the neighborhood he lived in for a little over fifty years. He was known by many and loved by all. He was passionate about caring for his animals and any stray that came his way. Peter selflessly loved his family and friends.
