Birth: Jul. 9, 1877

Death: Dec. 13, 1957
Westchester County
New York, USA

Peter Sarubbi of Wendover Rd one of the leading building contractors in Yonkers for 50 years, died last night in St. Joseph's Hospital. He was eighty and had been ill for the last several weeks. Mr. Sarubbi built School Twenty-three, reconstructed and built the additions to several other schools. With his brother the late Pancrazio A. Sarubbi, also a contractor, he built the Jewish Community Center, the Towers apartment house on Valentine Lane and a number of commercial structures and private houses throughout the city and county. He also constructed some of the original apartment house on Palmer Road.

A number of years ago when an airplane crashed into the tower of the Empire State skyscraper in New York City, Mr. Sarubbi was called to make the repairs. Born in Stigliano, Italy, Mr. Sarubbi came to this country about 60 years ago directly to Yonkers. He was long communicant of St. Anthony's Church on Willow St. and more recently of St. Denis Church.

He was married to Catherine Del Priore in 1900 at St. Anthony's. She died about 13 years ago. Surviving are three sons Joseph of Yonkers, Adolph of Mount Vernon and Felix of Lockhart, Fla.; two daughters Mrs. Joseph (Elizabeth) Lapchick of the Wendover Rd address, and Mrs. Frank Edith Trimble of St. Albans L. I., 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Peter Sarubbi is also survived by a brother, Felix, of Yonkers, and two sisters, Mrs. Anthony Giannantonio, also of this city, and Mrs. Peter Petrocelli of Elmhurst, L.I.
