    We will miss Pete a lot, being next door neighbors we always had a chance to chat about gardening, lawn care, his golf and my horses. I admired his active lifestyle, we’d even talk at 5:00am when he’d be loading his golf clubs in the car as I was pulling out of the driveway to work! He always had a kind word to say. A true gentleman who will be greatly missed by our family as well.

    Where do I begin to say what is and has always been in my heart? You have always been a wonderful uncle,I will always treasure the weekends I spent with you and aunt Marian in Mt. Prospect,when I was a young girl,I can go on and on about that. Then you married the most wonderful,loving,thoughtful,giving women, my aunt Susie,another angel from up above. Uncle Pete,I will miss your voice,laughter, but most of all your unconditional love for me. You are forever in my heart. You are with my beautiful mother,another angel. I love you,uncle Pete!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, Susie and family, and with all of the Nuccio family also. Hold your memories close in your hearts and let them be a comfort to you at this time and in the future. Pete became my uncle when I married his nephew, Pete, over 48 years ago and he has always been an amazing man to know. He not only served his country; he was also always there for his family and his friends. To put it mildly, he had a big heart. I shall miss our conversations about cooking, golf, and bowling and when I hear thunder, I will know he is back at his game. When I want a laugh I will watch the “Winkie” video and hear his voice making us all laugh once again. Love you and miss you, Uncle Pete…..forever.

    I knew Mr. Nuccio just a brief time, meeting the family at the hospital last week. He was very sweet and I could tell that there was a tremendous amount of love in your family. I am sorry for your loss. I thank you and Mr. Nuccio for making my workday a little bit brighter. Prayers for all of you.

  14. Courtney Olson on said:

    Words cant describe how much the family will miss you. This wasnt supposed to happen, you were going to bounce back and be ready to golf in just a few months. However, things didnt happen the way we wanted it. I know you’ll be looking down on us and I sure hope you keep that smile on your face. You were an amazing grandpa, always there for us whenever we needed you! I love you so much and miss you more than words can describe!!

    Mr. Nuccio was such a nice man that I remember him from the early 1980’s. He had an office in Westwood Office Park and I worked for Mr. Allen Whiteside, CPA next door. I would accept their mail or accept their packages when Mr. & Mrs. Nuccio were out. They were both so nice. I remember Mr. Nuccio gave me a recipe for making a large batch of corn on the cob which he made for large gatherings. His secret was milk in the water. He also gave me a sturdy cutting board with feet as a thank you for taking in his packages. I still use the cutting board and keep it out in my kitchen, it still looks great, and remember Mr. Nuccio fondly. I’m sure his family will miss him terribly but wanted you to know someone who knew him only from work recognized his kindness and remembered him from long ago. My sincerest sympathy for you all.

    I just learned of your passing. Cousin Marion used to babysit me when she lived on Wrightwood in Chicago. You made such a wonderful couple. Loved the times we spent at your house in Mt Prospect. I’m sure you will be missed by all.
