GREENVILLE – Peter G. Tito, 90, formerly of Saco, passed away April 9, 2013, at a Bangor hospital. Peter was born Jan. 19, 1923, a son of George and Pauline (Shore) Tito.
He attended Thornton Academy and joined the U.S. Army Air Corp during World War II at age 17, becoming an aerial photographer. Peter received the American Campaign Medal, Asiatic Pacific Medal, Good Conduct Medal and World War II Victory Medal. He was proud to have served part of his duty in Pearl Harbor during his service to his country. Peter owned and operated Brothers Pharmacy, Saco, along with his brother, Christo, for many years. He loved children and performing coin tricks for them when they came to the pharmacy. Peter and Linnie sold their Saco home in 1985 and moved to Greenville. Peter loved animals and nature, and enjoyed hunting and fishing. He believed everyone should enjoy fishing. Every year Peter would buy fishing rods and give them away to children who needed them. While in the hospital he told his doctor that he had to get healthy and go back home because he still had several fishing poles to give away.
Peter was predeceased by his wife, Aline (Cote) Tito, in 1994; by his sister, Pauline Tito; and his brother, Christo G. Tito. He is survived by many nieces and nephews; his dear friend, Ruth Robbins of Greenville; and his dog, Justice.
Friends are welcome to attend a brief graveside service noon Friday, April 12, at Laurel Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, friends are asked to donate to their favorite animal shelter in memory of Peter. Arrangements are by Cote Funeral Home, Saco.
