Obituary Condolences

Victor DiPIETRO On Tuesday, April 12, 2011, Victor DiPietro passed away suddenly at his home in Des Moines, WA with his wife, Diana, at his side. Victor was an outstanding and very generous person giving selflessly to many organizations and under-privileged people throughout the world. He was extremely involved with several branches of the military, providing entertainment for the troops to the local professional sporting events in Seattle. He was honored to throw out the first pitch at the Mariners' Fan Appreciation Day in 2009. Victor was born in Kent,WA on July 17, 1934 to Vincenzo and Incoronata DiPietro who preceded him in death. He was the last of three children born. His brother Dominic (Marian) preceded him in death in 1999 and he is survived by his brother Arthur (Violet) DiPietro. He is also survived by his beloved wife, Diana; sons, Vincenzo (Michiko) DiPietro, Ty Ribera, Casey (Tiffany) Ribera; grandchildren Hayley and Jaxsyn Ribera; and several nieces and nephews. He took pride in his humble upbringing and dedicated himself to pursue a better life for him and his family, thus making him the generous, loving, honest and moral person he became. He was a wonderful husband, brother, father and grandfather and uncle and a great friend to all who knew him. He will be remembered and loved by so many because of his great listening skills and sense of humor. He conquered his dream of becoming a great golfer and an exceptional pilot. He was the owner of Inco Express, a large transportation firm on the West coast and continued his career with many commercial real estate holdings. Victor was past President of the Washington Trucking Association, member of the Rainier Golf and Country Club in Seattle, Morningside Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA and the Plantation Country Club in LaQuinta, CA.
