Edward Anthony "Nick" Plantamura Obituary
September 4, 1937 - April 2, 2017 79, of Rancho Palos Verdes, passed away peacefully on April 2, 2017. He was born September 4, 1937 in Los Angeles, the son of Edward and Clarissa (Centrone) Plantamura. Nick was a graduate of Hoover High School and attended Occidental College on a music scholarship. At an early age, Nick was a brilliant musician, performing on the French horn with the Burbank Youth Symphony, and playing in the Warner Brothers orchestra. His career was spent in the aircraft fastener business, working in sales, traveling the world, and eventually working his way up to vice president of a world-wide company. Nick served St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church by singing for three decades in the choir, where he was appreciated for his comradery and musical ear. In his later years, Nick served as a board member of the local branch for Habitat for Humanity, as president of the Peninsula Breakfast Club, and as a board member of the Peninsula Symphony. In addition, he received awards and recognition for his volunteer work with the 15th Street School family literacy program, where he tutored adults in math. Nick is survived by his wife Rita Plantamura, four children: Terry (Mark) Stevenson, Debbie (Jay) Green, Tom (Suzy) Plantamura, and Gina Villareal; sister Carol Plantamura; and twelve grandchildren. A Funeral service will be held on April 15, 2017 at 1:00 pm at St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church, 6410 Palos Verdes Drive South, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275.
