Peter J Vaccaro 1963 - 2024

Peter Vaccaro, beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away peacefully on May 2, 2024, in Poughkeepsie, New York. He was born on May 16, 1963, to John Vaccaro and Adele Cavalieri of New Rochelle, New York.

Peter married the love of his life, Jacquelyn Smith Vaccaro, in 2006, and together they raised three wonderful children: Jack, 15, Finn, 12 and Sebastian, 10 in their hometown of Poughquag, New York. Peter was a devoted father who shared his passion for collecting and restoring old cars with his three sons. He loved nothing more than going on off-road adventures with them, trips to Anna Maria Island, Florida, and cruising the seas which each have equally created memories that will be cherished for all time.

After graduating from Arlington High School in 1981, Peter went on to attend Marist College, where he graduated in 1984. He dedicated over 40 years to the automotive field, where his expertise and love for cars shone brightly. Throughout his career, he traveled the world and lived in such places as Tokyo, Japan, Safat, Kuwait and Tammuning Guam.

Peter is survived by his oldest brother, Thomas Vaccaro and wife, Francesca, sisters; Patricia Vaccaro of Colorado Springs, Cathy Vaccaro of New Jersey, Nancy Sarich and husband Robert of Venice, Florida, MaryJane DeLeno and husband Robert, of Connecticut and Toni Vaccaro of Long Beach Island, New Jersey along with countless nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Peter is also survived by his dearest friends, Joseph and Meghan Nagle of Stormville, New York. Peter was preceded in death by his beloved sister, Kim and his Mother and Father, John, “Jack” and Adele Vaccaro.

Peter will always be remembered for his kind heart, infectious laughter, and unwavering love for his family. He will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
