Peter Xavier Carolan of Mendham, NJ, formerly of New York City, NY & Northport, NY passed on Thursday, September 14th, 2023. He had recently celebrated his 75th birthday and 39th wedding anniversary.

Born on August 23, 1948 in Brooklyn, NY to Peter and Margaret (Pace) Carolan. Peter grew up in Northport, NY, and attended Northport High School graduating in 1966. He then graduated from Niagara University in 1970 with a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in "Travel, Trade & Transportation". In 1975, Peter completed his MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business.

Prior to and while completing his MBA, Peter worked for American Express in their Park Avenue NYC office. He later moved to Citibank until 1979, when he left to commit full time to his growing import-export business, Real Torino. A workaholic by nature, for 40+ years, Peter successfully managed multiple companies importing breadsticks (grissini), pasta, and other Italian food products nationwide.

In addition to his many personal accomplishments, his greatest joy was celebrating the successes of his children. In recent years, his five grandchildren always put a smile on his face. His generosity and loyalty were omnipresent, and he would do anything to help someone he considered family or a close friend.

Loving husband of 39 years to Elena Bibini Carolan. Devoted father of Peter G. (Katelyn), Monica (Brett), Sofia & Ellie. Beloved grandfather & "Pop Pop" to Mia, Carter, Kirsa, Luce & Aurelia. Survived by siblings Leonard (Christine) Carolan, Margaret (Len) Modelewski & Frances (John) Marino.
