Peter Gabriel Guido, born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on April 3, 1930, died peacefully at The Kaplan House Hospice on Thursday, September 8, 2016, at the age of 86 years.
Peter was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., and lived there until retirement. Peter served in the Air Force from 1951 to 1953, and was given the National Defense Service Medal and the Good Conduct Metal. He worked as a telephone installer on Wall Street in NYC and the New York Federal Reserve Building. After retiring, he moved to South Glens Falls, N.Y., to be closer to his sister and her family. He had recently moved to Danvers, Mass., to be closer to his nieces and their families.
Pete loved to travel and visit with friends he made during his many trips around this country and overseas - he was especially fond of a city in Portugal west of Lisbon called Cascais where he traveled frequently. He also enjoyed cribbage, cross word puzzles, math, photography, pool, horseshoes, bowling, walking, dining out, and was an avid reader. He never married, but was like a second father to his two nieces, Carol Allen and Theresa Whitmore, teaching them many valuable lessons as he visited with them often.
He was a generous man who enjoyed a good joke, and was always willing to lend a hand in any way he could. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
He was predeceased by his sister, Theresa Guida Frasier of Brooklyn, N.Y., South Glens Falls, N.Y., and Gloucester, Mass.; a brother, Joseph Guida of Brooklyn, N.Y.; a brother, William Guida of Ocala, Fla.; his father, Saverio Guida of Bari, Italy, and Brooklyn, N.Y.; and his mother, Margaret Winkler Guida of Brooklyn, N.Y.
He is survived by his nieces, Theresa Frasier Whitmore, and Carol Frasier Allen of Gloucester, Mass.; a niece, JoAnne Guida of Florida; and nephews, Dwayne Guida of Alabama and William Guida of Georgia.
A private family graveside service will be held at Long Island National Cemetery in Farmington, N.Y.
