Peter Pandolfino

Peter J. Pandolfino, 92, passed away peacefully on July 26 in Hopkinton. Pete was born in Cambridge in 1931 to Anthony and Mary Pandolfino. He is survived by his loving wife of 71 years, Lorraine, and his brother, Joseph and fiancee Cathie Harty, of Ashland. He was predeceased by his sister, Josephine of Centerville. Peter also leaves behind his five children, Donna Jacobs of Framingham, Steven Pandolfino and wife Suzanne of Whitinsville, Paul Pandolfino and wife Janine of Laconia, New Hampshire, Peter Pandolfino and wife Elizabeth of Upton, and Laura Brevik and husband David of Westborough; his nephews, Michael Pandolfino and wife Tiffany of Milford, and Joey Pandolfino and fiancée Sharon Bonzetti of Framingham; and a niece, Debra Pandolfino, recently married to Chris Rogaishio of Framingham. Peter also greatly loved his 12 grandkids and 17 great-grandkids.

Peter graduated from Arlington High School, attended classes at Berklee College of Music, and later served in the U.S. Army and Air Force National Guard. Pete was well known in the area for his many years in the hair business, as he owned several hair salons independently and also with his brother, Joe. Pete was a music lover and musician who loved playing his bass. In his younger years, he started a band, The Peter Pann Quartet, and played weekends at Alphonse’s Powder Mill Restaurant in Maynard, and also performed for special occasions throughout the area.

Pete loved life and his family but more than anything his beloved wife of 71 years, Lorraine. After raising his family in Natick, Pete and his wife later moved to Mashpee, where he enjoyed his retirement. Pete kept his many friends and neighbors close and continued getting together with his musician friends down the Cape to do what he loved best — play music. Loved by all who knew him, Pete was a kind and thoughtful person who was always willing to help those who reached out to him.  He will be deeply missed by his family and many friends.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, Aug. 19, at noon at Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton, 57 Hayden Rowe Street.
