Dear son of Anna R. (nee Balsama) and Amedio N. Urbano, of Gloucester Township. Beloved father of Christine Marie Urbano of Delaware, Peter A. Urbano Jr. of Mantua, NJ, Stephen M. Urbano (daughter-in-law Lindsey) of Audubon, NJ, and Nicholas A. Urbano of Gloucester Township. Loving brother of Bonnie Williames (brother-in-law Don) of Marco Island, FL. Proud grandfather of Dominic Zuck and Alexander Urbano. Pete is also survived by his mother-in-law, Johannah Troncone, of Collingswood, NJ; as well as numerous cousins, especially Rich Balsama who was more like a brother than a cousin.
Mr. Urbano owned and operated Urbano Electric, which he founded in 1985, and now includes his two sons Peter Jr. and Stephen, who have joined the business. He enjoyed boating, fishing, traveling to the Caribbean with his wife and playing roulette at Bally’s (numbers 11 and 29). His favorite thing was spending time at his Mystic Island Shore house with his wife and family.
