Peter was born on May 15, 1924 in the Bronx, NY to Rose and Marlo Madonia when a truck driven through the glass window of the family bakery sent Rose into labor. His birth behind the counters of Madonia Brothers Bakery on Arthur Avenue foretold his lifelong piece in the Italian-American community as owner there with his brother Frank when his father Mario could no longer manage the beloved Arthur Avenue bakery. Before he inherited ownership of the bakery, he met his loving wife, Josephine at a dance and quickly fell in love. The two built a beautiful family together full of warmth, care and food, and supported their family with the pizzeria they owned together. Peter was known for his strength of character, gentle nature and understanding of the world. He will be remembered as a beacon of wisdom and a model of respect.
