Obituary of Peter J. Picciocca

Peter J. Picciocca completed his earthly journey on April 2nd, 2020. Ann and John Picciocca welcomed their son, Peter into this world on January 11th, 1948, in Amsterdam, NY.

Peter attended Wilbur Lynch High School. In 1969, Peter graduated from Nathaniel Hawthorne College in Antrim, New Hampshire, where he was a founding member of the MAG fraternity.

After graduation, Peter became a history teacher before pursuing a career in the financial industry. In 1981, his career path took him to Atlanta, Georgia, where he held various senior level management positions with American Express. Peter moved on to Vice President positions at both Citicorp Credit Services, Equifax Risk Management Services and RMA. In 2002, Peter joined Convergent Resources Inc. and became President and CEO.

In 2008, Peter semi-retired to Delray Beach, FL where he continued consulting for numerous risk management companies.

Throughout his entire career, Peter’s greatest passion was business mentoring. During his prolonged illness, his family received over 100 stories from former colleagues describing how Peter helped them shape their careers. His family is proud that Peter lives on through his mentor-ships.

Peter served as President of his HOA in Delray Beach and was a member of The National Corvette Restoration Society.

Peter is survived by his loving wife, Sheila Picciocca, son Nicholas Picciocca, granddaughter, Morgan Picciocca, sisters, Angela (Dennis) Ford and Nancy (John) Mangona and lifelong friends Tommy Minnitti and Christopher Andrews.
