Peter L. Cissone, 59, of Limerick PA, husband of Catherine (McKenna) Cissone, passed away on Saturday, October 14, 2023.
Born in Philadelphia, PA. He was the son of Phyllis R. (Palladino) and the late Peter J. Cissone.
Pete was born July 5, 1964 and grew up in Blue Bell, PA. He graduated from Bishop Kendrick High School. After high school, Pete worked at Prudential where he would meet his future wife, Cathie. They married on October 15, 1988. Pete would then go on to dedicate his career to Independence Blue Cross where he would work hard and play harder for 34 years. Pete was fortunate enough to earn his Bachelors degree through IBX and graduated summa cum laude from Pierce College in 2001.
Pete was an avid Philadelphia Phillies fan and a fan of all other Philadelphia sports teams. A day in the ballpark or on the golf course were his ideal perfect day, unless Cathie was dragging him to Giant to food shop.
Pete’s memory will be cherished by his devoted wife, Cathie. Together they would become the ultimate team to their two children; Peter L. Cissone Jr. (Rosy) and McKenna Cissone. He would dedicate the rest of his life to being the best dad and Pops, giving his children the best childhood possible. His absolute pride and joy is his grandson, Noah L. Cissone. Noah and Pops were thick as thieves and the best of friends. Pops was over the moon when his son Peter and his wife Rosy announced that they were pregnant again. Although the baby isn’t due until December 2023, we know Pops has already met the little one and is blessing them.
Pete’s Celebration Day will be held on Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at Flourtown Country Club.
150 McCloskey Rd., Flourtown, PA 19031
Pete’s family invites all who loved him to celebrate with them from 11am-1pm. Pete would love it if you wore your Philadelphia sports team gear to the celebration.
