Born in Newark he lived in Union for many years before moving to Springfield 15 years ago. He was the Chief Financial officer for the Twp. of Maplewood, N.J. for 10 yrs. Peter was very proud of his work as CFO in Maplewood, but he was even prouder of his accomplishments as a pastry chef at Orso Restaurant in New York City, and as owner of Paradiso Restaurant in Montclair, NJ.
He was the son of the late Caroline (nee Ferrara) and Peter Fresulone, as well as the brother of Carmel Robertson and her husband Gene, Carole Pascarella and her husband Domenick, and the late Angelo and his late wife Doris Fresulone. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
