Peter Paul Rainone, age 69, of Fairfield, beloved husband of Valarie Horton Rainone, passed away on Tuesday, October 23, 2012. Born and raised in New Cannan to the late Christy and Maria DiChiaro Rainone, Peter had been a resident of Fairfield for thirty two years. He had served in the National Guard for six years.
It would be difficult if not impossible to sum up what Peter's life meant to all of those who knew him. He was a carpenter to some, a landscaper to others a devoted husband and loving father. One thing that all would agree upon however, is the fact that he was a true craftsman in all that he touched. Peter proved that with hard work anything in life can be achieved. Amongst the endless beauty Peter created in this world the home he made for his family at 690 Winnepoge Drive will forever be his single greatest accomplishment, not for what he built with his two hands, but rather for what he built with his heart. Every perfectly placed board and nail will forever be constant reminder of the highest standard he set for us, one which we should all be so proud to live up to.
In addition to his wife Valarie, Peter is survived by two sons, Jeffrey and Christopher Rainone, of Fairfield; four siblings, Mary Iarussi, and her husband, Aldo, of Cranston, RI, Connie Razzaia, of Fairfield, Carmella Scarpetti, of Manchester, NH, and Christy Rainone, of North Haven; and many nieces and nephews.
Friends may greet the family on Sunday, October 28, 2012 from 2-6 PM in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home, 1209 Post Road, in Fairfield Center. A service will take place at 5:30 PM. All other services will be held privately.
