ESPINOLA, Emilio Felix "Pete", 85, US Army veteran and a lifelong Tampa resident, departed his earthly life for his heavenly life Friday, May 11, 2012, after a long illness. He is survived by his wife, Betty; daughter, Peggy Crump; sons, Bobby and Kenny; grandchildren, Kelly Pirovolos, Michelle Brittingham, and Andrea and Michael Espinola; great-grandchildren, Andrew Pirovolos and Emma and Owen Brittingham; and brother, Hector Espinola. Pete was preceded in death by his father and mother, Elpedio and Onelia Espinola; and grandson, Alex Espinola. He was an entrepreneur who owned and co-owned several businesses, a Largo, FL, commercial laundry and a beach property management company. Pete will be remembered for his deep love of family and friends, his beautiful smile and lightheartedness, and his sense of adventure in the air as a pilot and on the water as a boater and fisherman. The family wants to extend their sincerest thanks to LifePath Hospice that provided extraordinary comfort and care. In lieu of flower, the family asks that donations be made in Pete's memory to LifePath Hospice, 12973 N.
