Memories of dad shared by the family ... please feel free to comment on photos and enjoy. https://tinyurl.com/y52w9ggx
Larry and I grew up together. Our families were quite close. After a number of years we discovered we were both stationed in Greece. Larry was home ported in Eleusis . I first met Marianna and Patty at the Atheni American PX. While Larry was out on a mission Marianna and Patty stayed with us for a little while near the Atheni Air Base. My prayers...
Hey Peperatos, so sorry for your loss. Mr. P was present in my life for many years. My first memories of him were as the hands on basketball coach at Armbrust. He was the one out there doing the drills with us. Teaching us by example. I also have a distinct memory of him being a chaperone on a school trip to Baltimore. I shared a hotel room wi...
Patty Preston Sophia, two years old, loves her grandpa! So sad she won’t have the lifetime of memories with him that he should have had.
Larry lived his life here with us filled with joy, kindness, helping hand, mentor, and most of all a shared love of Jesus. Godspeed Larry I'll see you on the other side.
RIP Larry! You were a great family man! Enjoyed working with you! God bless your beautiful family!
Larry was a wonderful husband and a fabulous father. He will be missed by everyone but he is at peace !!! God bless him !!! Love ,Melinda and Bob
This was written by Michelle. Larry being my older sibling by 16 years, my childhood memories of him are faint. He went off to the navy so my memories began when he came home with his beautiful, loving wife, Marianna. I remember staying at their house on 3rd street in Jeannette, when Patty and Michael were little ones. I laugh when I think about h...
Larry was a good and loving man. I miss his wisdom and sense of humor at Powerex. I will always miss our online Trivia Crack games after he retired. He beat me more times than I can count. I think he cheated! Ha ha. He was my best competition. Larry, my friend, Rest In Peace!
Michael Peperato I miss him. Not only was he a great father, but he was a trusted confidant, advisor, and friend. He is at peace, and I am glad he is no longer dealing with cancer and GBS. Even though his time here was cut short, he lives on in all of the lives that he touched, especially in traits and personalities that he passed on to his kids and grandchildren, through genetics as well as experience: loyalty, passion, sarcasm, good sense of humor, open mindedness, desire to learn, desire to debate, desire to make those around him happy, desire to enjoy life, a strong work ethic, unwavering love for family and friends, and to fight for those that you love, as well as those who cannot or will not fight for themselves. My dad was not perfect, but we all witnessed his desire throughout the years to become a better version of himself. That not only made him become a great father, husband and friend, but also gave all of us who witnessed that transformation a blueprint on how to make ourselves better people in our own right. He taught us to strive to be better every day, become more patient, slower to anger, faster to forgive. I still struggle with these lessons, but I know that if I continue to live my life like my dad, I will become closer to that greatness that he achieved. I love you Dad.
