Pietro “Pete” Villani, 96, passed away peacefully on February 14, 2022. Pete was born to the late Paul and Palmira Villani in Apollo, Pennsylvania on May 1, 1925.
Living 91 years of his life in Apollo, Pennsylvania, he served his country proudly in the Pacific Theater during World War II as an Army Private First Class. After working 40 years at Hyde Park Iron Foundry, Pete retired to a relaxing life of tending to his house, refurbishing antique furniture, daily workouts at the YMCA, assembling puzzles, chewing Mail Pouch tobacco while scratching lottery tickets and spending time with family and friends.  An avid Steelers, Penguins and Pirates fan, he had a passion for watching professional sports and old-time cowboy movies on TV.  As he turned 92, Pete and his wife relocated to Virginia Beach to be with his family and where he enjoyed meeting new friends, spending time with family and continuing to embrace every day and its simple pleasures.
Pete had a kind and gentle soul, welcoming smile, endless supply of patience and a great sense of humor, always taking pleasure in making people laugh and smile.  Loved by many, he was a wonderful person and will be deeply missed and will always be remembered with love.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 67 years, Gloria Villani; sons, Dan Villani & wife Dorianne, Rich Villani & wife Marilyn and Gary Villani & wife Phyllis; grandchildren, Matthew, Katelyn, Nathan, Eric, Adam, Cari and Melanie; great grandchildren, Payton, Triston, Parker and Avery; beloved nieces and nephews; and many more extended family members and friends.
A celebration of life will be held for Pete at Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel on March 5th at 11:00 AM. His burial will take place at Riverview Cemetery in Apollo, Pennsylvania at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for you to consider a donation be made in Pete’s memory to the Kiski Valley YMCA, 511 Hyde Park Rd, Leechburg, PA 15656. Donations may be made by going to www.tmcfunding.com or by clicking “HERE”
