So sorry to read of Pete's passing. I first met Pete while working at the Norwalk Post Office and we became instant friends he lived in Danbury and me in Brookfield. After he retired from the PO and went to work for Kohls we still remained friends along with my late Chris. He would stop in the cleaners sometimes just to say hello to Chris, he was a genuine, real and honorable guy, I missed seeing you at Kohls RIP my friend. Gene E Gaudio

It was an honor to care for Mr. Passarelli and to see first hand the devotion of his daughters during our time together. I especially loved the joy that resonated in his smile when he proudly showed first photographs of Owen Peter and the excitement he had for his growing family tree. May the Passarelli Family be comforted knowing he is at peace in God's loving embrace and that his legacy will live by the stories you will continue to cherish and share.
