Obituary of Peter A Gitto

Peter Anthony, Jr. 61 of Atlantic City, passed away on Monday, January 20, 2020 in his lifelong Arizona Avenue home. Peter was born in Atlantic City on July 10, 1958. He attended Our Lady Star of the Sea School and Holy Spirit High School. Peter was a diehard fan of the Holy Spirit High School football team and attended games for most of his life. Surrounded in enemy territory, Peter never wavered in his devotion to his sports teams including the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Boston Bruins, Boston Red Sox, and six-time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. Peter will always be remembered for his generous, compassionate, and loving soul. He was the rock for his family and friends. Peter would never fail to care for others in their time of need. Peter relied upon his strong Catholic faith, a well-timed Hail Mary, and Irish wit to carry him through life.

He is survived by his father Peter Anthony Gitto, Sr.; brother Thomas (Nok) Gitto; sister Diane (Timmy) Hunt, and sister Karen Gitto.
