Philip A. Pisano Jr., 69, of Hyannisport, Mass. and Fort Myers, Fla., passed away peacefully at home on Friday, Sept. 20, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was the beloved husband of Nancy (Poirier) Pisano for over 50 years. He was born on Nov. 11, 1943, the son of the late Philip A Pisano and Rose M (Brogna) Pisano. Born and raised in the West End of Boston, his family later moved to Waltham, Mass. He attended Carmelite Seminary in Danvers, Mass., graduated from St. Marys High School Class of 1961, Boston College in 1966 and later received his Masters of Business Administration at Suffolk University. He raised his family in Hanover, Mass. and later moved to Cape Cod or Gods Country North as he called it, and split his time between there and Ft Myers, Florida Gods Country South. He is survived by his four sons, Philip Pisano III and husband Wayne Fastzkie of Sandusky Ohio, Mark Pisano and wife Theresa of Plymouth, Mass., Rob Pisano and wife Tasa of Somerville, Mass., and Matthew Pisano of Centerville, Mass. He has 3 grandchildren, Kaitlin, Alyssa and Mark Pisano. He is also survived by his five brothers and sisters, including Marilyn Vaccaro of Napa, Calif., Paul Pisano and his wife Clara of Beaufort, N.C., Frank Pisano and Danielle Delaney of Waltham, Mass., Lisa and husband Chris Bernard of Ft. Myers, and Laurie Pisano of Centerville, Mass. Phil is also survived by a very large extended family, including la famiglia in Pietraperzia, Sicily and an extraordinary number of dear, close friends too numerous to name. Phil retired from Scituate High School in 2001 after 35 years of dedicated teaching and mentoring. His true love however was coaching various high school sports programs including football, basketball and softball at Scituate, Cohasset and South Shore Vocational Regional High School. Although winning was always in his blood, it was the level of respect, commitment, sacrifice and character that he instilled most into his players. Phil genuinely cared about the character and development of the young adults he taught and coached. These values are evident in the many young lives he influenced, as many of his students and athletes over the years have continued contact and lasting relationships with him. Phils favorite activity was playing golf at Olde Barnstable Golf Club and Legends Country Club (Ft. Myers). He was also involved in many other activities, including teaching bridge, establishing the American-Italian club in Ft. Myers, writing articles for The West Ender, attending church, and his serving on Board 54 IAABO. The most important aspect of his life however was his relationships with his family and friends, and the times that he spent with them. He reconnected with his heritage by finding his long lost relatives from Pietraperzia and Lapio, Italy, visiting abroad three times with much of his immediate family. The family has decided to establish a scholarship fund in Phils name. In lieu of flowers, gracious donations can be sent to Philip Pisano Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o Citizens Bank, 127 Samoset St, Plymouth, Mass. 02360. The family would especially like to thank the incredibly talented and dedicated nurses and doctors at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Womens Hospital, Cape Cod Hospital and Hospice & Palliative Care of Cape Cod. Visiting hours will be from 4 - 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at Morris, OConnor and Blute Funeral Home, 58 Long Pond Drive in So. Yarmouth. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 on Thursday at St. Francis Xavier Parish, South Street, Hyannis. A private burial will take place at a future date.
