Pietro ‘Pizza Pete’ Calderone
Pietro “Pizza Pete” Calderone, 75, of Fritz Lane, Amsterdam, passed away at home on Friday afternoon, January 10, 2020, surrounded by his loving family.
He was born in Carini, Sicily, Italy on December 5, 1944, a son of Guiseppe and Phyllis Lopresti Calderone and was educated there. Peter came to the United States in 1972.
Mr. Calderone owned and operated Pete’s Pizzeria in Gloversville before moving to Broadalbin in 1978. Here, he established Pizza Supreme on Main Street and, along with his wife Linda, continued to operate the business for nearly thirty years. Today, Pizza Supreme is owned and operated by his sons, Frank and Tony Calderone.
Survivors include his wife, Linda Boscini Calderone, whom he married on April 5, 1972; four sons, Joseph Calderone (Lana) of Galway, Frank (Jacklyn) Calderone and Tony (Kimberly) Calderone, all of Broadalbin, and Vincent (Mary) Calderone of Amsterdam; and seven grandchildren, Dante, Camille, Carissa, Alaina, Bailee, Lilliana, and Giayna.
Cremation was performed at Park View Crematorium, Schenectady. Now, if you knew Pete you know he was always the life of the party — which is why we would love for the family and friends to come celebrate a life well lived. Calling hours will be held on Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Robert M. Halgas Funeral Home Inc., 111 County Highway 106 (corner of Route 29 and Black Street), Johnstown. A memorial service will be held on Friday at 11 a.m. at the funeral home with Pastor Lance Borofsky, officiating. Memorial contributions may be made to Dementia Society of America, in care of the funeral home.
