ny Banducci, 45, California PETER ANTHONY BANDUCCI Beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend, went to be with the LORD on September 28, 2006 after a long battle with ALS and Lyme disease.

The LORD blessed Marian and the late John Banducci with Peter on February 27, 1961, he was 1 of 6 produced by this blessed union. Pete attended school in the Mission area of Fremont, graduated in 1979. He studied automotive repair at a young age and was blessed with a true gift from GOD. He went to Ohlone College where he majored in business and met his future wife, Pamela. He went on to study many automotive courses and was an ASC certified Master Tech. On September 2, 1986, he independently opened Pete's Foreign Auto Repair. It is in its 21st year of business and continues to operate under Roger daRocha and Pamela. Pete had the business certified as a Green Business and a AAA approved facility. Peter went on to marry Pamela on December 31, 1987. This union was blessed with 2 children, Alyssa and Samuel. His family meant everything to him. Some of his most enjoyable times were spent out on the boat with his family; celebrating family birthdays and holidays; baseball at Niles-Centerville Little League and was a big Giant's and A's fan; he enjoyed music, especially Michael McDonald and Chris Isaak; and last but not least he enjoyed his calls to his mom and Batman. Pete valued honesty, family, friends and the LORD. He developed 2 new friendships with Jocelyn and Marcus who helped his family with his care. He was cared for by his loved ones at home.
