Peter was a corporal in the U.S. Marines and was deployed in the Pacific area in World War 2, engaging at Roi and Namur, Saipan and Tinian, and the Marshall and Marianas Islands. Following the war, he was employed by the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company in Mechanicville as a welder until its closing in 1971, and then by the Delaware and Hudson Railroad until retiring in 1983. He was a communicant of the All Saints the Hudson Church in Mechanicville. Peter was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and playing golf.

What a wonderful life Mr Laurenzo led and what a legacy he leaves for all those that knew and loved him! His smile and sense of humor, his devotion to his family, and gentle ways were a blessing to all those who came into contact with him. He truly made the world a better place. Our condolences to the family, but also congratulations - as Bob once said to me, he won “the birth lottery” by having such wonderful parents!

I'm going to miss you Uncle Pete.I won't hear 'my honeybee' anymore! I'll always remember when we used to come and visit and you would play the piano and sing Moon River. So many happy memories of you and the family growing up. I will miss your smile and your gentle eyes. Rest in peace, I will never forget you. Give hugs to everyone when you arrive in heaven and have a happy, huge family reunion.
