Pete Matteucci Obituary
Matteucci, Pete (Pietro)

Pete (Pietro) Matteucci, 91, a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and WW II veteran peacefully entered into eternal life on December 16, 2015 while surrounded by his loving family.

Pete was born in Lucca, Italy on July 5, 1924 to Giovanni and Teresa Matteucci, arriving in Albuquerque in 1926 joining its close-knit downtown Italian Community. His father Giovanni was the youngest brother of the original Matteucci family that settled in Albuquerque from Lucca. Pete became a lifelong resident of Albuquerque and will always be remembered for his wealth of historical knowledge of Albuquerque and many of its residents, especially those from the Italian community. Wherever Pete went in Albuquerque, he was sure to see someone he knew.

After graduating from St. Mary's High School in 1942, Pete worked in Wichita, Kansas in a B-17 airplane factory until joining the US Army Air Corps in 1943. He proudly served during WWII with the 830th Bombardment Squadron until February, 1946. Pete was a lifelong Catholic never faltering in his faith. He was an active member of Immaculate Conception parish, proud alum of St. Mary's and a St. Mary's parent and grandparent. Pete served throughout the years in various capacities including altar boy, lecturer, and usher, as well as a member of many committees and fundraising efforts for both the Church and St. Mary's. Pete retired from the Gas Company of NM, formerly known as Southern Union Gas in 1988.

Pete married Clara Lombardelli in 1958 and remained her devoted husband until her death on April 27, 2015. Pete is survived by his children: Julie Andrews and husband William, Linda Matteucci and husband Benjamin Snow, John Matteucci and girlfriend Leslie Ranalli, and Rita Matteucci; grandchildren: Matthew Andrews and wife Jessica, Warren Andrews and wife Chrissy, Karen Timm and husband Michael, Timothy Snow and Giovanna Snow; great-grandchildren: Arianna Andrews, Tristan Andrews and Penelope Timm; uncle: Pietro Giuli of Milan, Italy; brothers, Fred Matteucci and Richard C.
