Pietro Alessandro Bonamico, 89, died on January 20, 2019. Pietro “Piero” was born on July 8, 1929, in Genoa, Italy, and moved permanently to the US in 1971. He became a naturalized citizen in 1976. In the first half of his life, he experienced the atrocities of war, a trek across Europe, a globe-spanning career on the high seas, and ultimately, the love story that brought him to settle in Barre and become a stay-at-home dad, gardener, pizza chef and member of the Presbyterian Church Choir. He is survived by his wife, Lee Aura; sons Marco (Bologna, Italy), Piero (Arlington, VA) and Nicholas (Berkley, CA); niece Sirena (Brooklyn, NY); and granddaughter Elena (Milan, Italy).
