Emigrating from the Netherlands to the United States in 1949, Peter and his wife Maria built a beautiful life together, enjoying each other's company and raising their two children, Robert and Kathryn. Peter balanced his hard work in construction with the joys of fishing, reading, traveling and gardening, which he did with meticulous care. His family mattered above all else, and he loved being a proud Grandpa of six and Great Grandpa to two little ones.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Filippo Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Peter and Maria lost their beloved son Robert to blood cancer in December of 2015. A donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society would be a lasting tribute to both Peter and Robert, and provide support to other patients and families in their time of need.
As the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society identifies and funds the most promising blood cancer research projects and forges partnerships with academic institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to accelerate the development of new therapies. Its mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
If you would prefer to make your contribution via check, please make payable to In Memory Of, include the dedication name and charity organization and mail to:
