Peter John Pioli


June 29, 2017

Peter John Pioli, of Sapphire, was called to his heavenly Father Friday, June 23, 2017.

He was born in The Bronx, N.Y. Dec. 10, 1947, to the late George and Renee Pioli.

He is survived by his spouse, Louis Riggs; brother, George; two children, Paul and Vanessa; and four grandchildren, Renee, Garrett, Isabella and Lilliana.

He graduated from Parsons School of Design College in New York City, N.Y. and had a very successful career in design and interior decorating. He moved to the Sapphire Valley area in 1997 and opened Peter J. Pioli Interiors, which he ran until his death. He loved the mountains and nature.

He was a very spiritual man and was a member of St. Jude Catholic Church, where he was instrumental in all facets of extending the church with a parish hall and classrooms. He was also former president of the parish council and the current church sacristan.

He was a very passionate, caring, humble man who would do anything for anyone and not want any recognition or anything in return. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.

Services will be at St. Jude Catholic Church Friday, June 30, 2017.

A viewing will be held from 10 to 10:30 a.m., followed by a funeral Mass at 11 a.m.

Burial will be immediately following the funeral at the cemetery behind the church.

A reception celebrating his life will follow in the church parish hall.
