Pietro Rizzuti

Pietro Rizzuti

Pietro Paolo Rizzuti entered eternal rest on September 14, 2021. He was eighty-four.
Pietro was born in Italy on June 29, 1937, to Francesco and Fedora Rizzuti. He was one of eleven children. He is predeceased by his loving wife Maria Vigna Rizzuti who he was married to for 65 years and they had four children together.
He migrated from Italy to New Rochelle, NY in 1969 where he reunited with his wife and three children who had arrived here a year earlier. His family continued to grow with the birth of their fourth child. He worked as a contractor with Tozzo Contracting for over 20 years. He wore many hats throughout his life from brick layer, roofer, mechanic, landscaper to school crossing guard. He loved children and that love showed when he would cross and protect the school kids at his posts. Pietro was a devout husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend. He was always there for anyone at any time that needed help with anything from a car repair, house maintenance or to lend a shoulder to lean on.
His favorite activities were bowling and playing cards at the local Italian social clubs in New Rochelle.
He is survived and will be greatly missed by his children, Patricia Boylan, Luciano Rizzuti, Gabriella Rizzuti, Francesco Rizzuti; daughter-in-law Jo Ann Rizzuti; grandchildren Salvatore, Amanda, Thomas, Anthony, Maria Gabriella, Peter, Maria, Michael, Peyton; great-grandchildren Daniella, Justin, Addison, Dominick, Nolan, Elena and Asher; his sister Ida Vigna and six other siblings that live in Italy.
He was predeceased by his granddaughter Daniella.
Visitation is Sunday September 26, 2021, from 3 to 8 pm at Lloyd Maxcy & Sons Beauchamp Chapel, 16 Shea Place in New Rochelle, NY. The funeral mass will take place at St. Joseph’s Church, 280 Washington Avenue, New Rochelle, NY at 10:30 am on Monday September 27, 2021. Entombment to follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery
