Peter V. Belmonte, Jr. of Quincy and formerly of South Boston died peacefully, surrounded by his loving family on Monday, November 4, 2019. He was 80.
Born and raised in South Boston, he was the son of the late Peter V. and Fanny (Vella) Belmonte. Peter graduated from South Boston High School with the Class of 1958. Following high school, Peter joined the Sheet Metal Workers Local 17, soon became a foreman, and worked as a proud member for over 30 years. He enjoyed his work and the relationships he built over the years.
When Peter was younger, he played both the French Horn and Trumpet with the Lt. Norman Prince ”Princemen” Drum and Bugle Corps. He was also a member of the first Little League team in Boston.
In his spare time, Peter enjoyed being at home with his family, especially his grandchildren who were his pride and joy. He loved his house and was proud of all the work he put into building it for his family. In his retirement, Peter and his wife enjoyed traveling and always planning their day with something fun to do.
Peter was a genuine, honest and selfless person. Everyone knew that he loved them by his actions and care he provided. There wasn’t anything Peter wouldn’t do for the people he loved and cared for. His love and strong work ethic are his legacy that continues through his children and grandchildren. He will be missed by all the lives he touched.
