The Marrone Family

Pete Marrone—husband, father and friend to all—passed away unexpectedly on Saturday March 16th.  Pete leaves behind his 3 beautiful daughters, Adelaine (18), Sylvia (12), Gwen (10) and Charity, his loving wife of 21 years.  Pete adored all four of his girls, he was their champion, their rock and their sole provider. 

Pete was a dedicated family man.  Never missing a chance to coach or cheer on his girls on the field.  He found great joy in watching his daughters grow and explore their different passions, always being by their sides.  Charity and Pete were each other’s life loves, soul mates and best friends. To his friends, Pete was known as a quick-witted and out going person to all those that were blessed to know him.  He was absolutely the life of the party, possessed a great sense of humor and was an incredibly talented cook.  He could often be found behind the grill or in the kitchen cooking up a delicious masterpiece for family and friends.  He had become an avid kayaker and cyclist and enjoyed long rides with friends and even competing in races.  Pete, Charity and the girls enjoyed traveling and making memories in different parts of the world.  He will be missed dearly.

As devastating as a tragedy like this is, the last thing Charity should worry about is finances.  Our goal, as Charity and Pete’s friends, is to keep stress off of her plate so that she can focus on healing from their loss at this very difficult time.  We hope to help with final medical costs, educational cost for the girls, and any expenses related to the loss of income due to Pete’s untimely death.

And while the loss of Pete can neither be compensated for nor his family’s grief taken away, we can all make a big difference in their lives by contributing toward this cause.  We are forever grateful for your generous contributions and for supporting the Marrone’s in this way.

                                                                Sincerely, The Marrone’s tribe
