Peter Aaron Tomasso, a loving son, brother, father, uncle, and dear friend to so many, passed away on November 17, 2019, after a valiant fight with cancer. May he rest in peace.
Peter was born in Englewood, New Jersey on February 15, 1971 to Marilyn and Pasquale Tomasso. He graduated from Ridgewood High School in 1989 and earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Denver in 1993. Joining the family business, Manhattan Neon Sign Corporation, Peter helped grow the company as a Senior Sales Principal and business leader for over twenty-six years. His tremendous talent and vision led to a fourfold increase in the company’s revenue, and a diversification into several new business lines. With his leadership, the company went from three full-time employees to twenty-five. He was a skilled leader earning respect and building strong friendships with his co-workers.
Peter loved Hoboken, New Jersey, which he made his family home. Recently, he led the relocation of Manhattan Neon to a historic warehouse on the south side of Hoboken.
Above all, Peter was a dedicated and loving father to his children, Portia and Robbie, whom he loved more than anything in the world. He loved taking them to the Hamptons and on many other fun adventures. They were always foremost in his mind and heart, and he was extremely proud of them.
Peter’s memory will be cherished by his loving parents, Marilyn and Pasquale Tomasso, his dear brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Margarita Tomasso, his beloved children Portia and Robbie Tomasso, and his dear niece and nephew, Andrea and Mikey Tomasso.
Peter was a wonderful and dedicated son, brother, and a best friend to so many. He could always make you laugh. Peter will be dearly missed by his family and loved ones.
