Rest In Peace
"It is with a heavy, heavy heart that I write this message... Pete Fornatale passed away peacefully today at 11:30am. There will be a private wake and funeral service for him.
Fans should know, though, that plans are being made for a memorial tribute to Pete that will be held in the near future. It will be hosted by his friends at WhyHunger, with the support of Pete’s family, his friends, and... of course... his many fans. Information about that event will be made available here.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that a donation be made in Pete Fornatale’s name to WhyHunger, an organization that Pete has been associated with since it was co-founded by his good friend Bill Ayres and the late Harry Chapin in 1975."
