Our father's older brother Peter Sannino born 1921 was a bachelor uncle. Upon graduating high school, he had apprenticed as a pipefitter. The day after Pearl Harbor, the town organized a parade that marched the length of Main St. ending at Borough Hall. Like most of the town's young men, Peter fell in with the parade, marched to Borough Hall and enlisted. He chose the navy, and served throughout the war in the Atlantic as a seaman in his ship's engine rooms. Peter was also the Chaplain's (Catholic) Assistant as well as ship's middlewight boxing champ (but not fleet champ he admitted). His war experience included accompanying convoys, then troop transport. While in England, he developed a lifelong love of all things Irish, rare for an Italian-American of that time. He was in D-Day, shipboard. After the war, Pete came home opened a plumbing business, then a bar restaurant, sponsored sports teams in the local and semi-pro leagues, was a lifelong member of the YMCA, and the PBA, and the VFW, American Legion, and ushered at 10 o'clock mass every Sunday until the week before he died after a brief illness at aged 83. My Irish born wife was astonished at the number of people who appeared at his viewing and attended his funeral.
