We are all deeply grieving the sudden loss of Pietro Palazzolo on October 16, 2022.
He was born October 14th, 1999. Pietro was 22 years old. His death has not only created a huge hole in the hearts of his family, but also his friends, in the community of the institutions in which he belonged, and in his workplace, Bliss & Nyitray, Inc. He became an alumni of Christopher Columbus High School in 2017, where he achieved the Gold Medal in Mathematics, Second in Merit of Science, earned the position of National AP Scholar, and was a Mas Family Scholar Inductee being nationally recognized in the top 10% of his graduating class. He attended Cornell University where he was part of the Cornell Club Water Polo team and earned a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in 2021.
We all know Pietro as a light in any room with a contagious smile and the happy personality to match. Pietro loved to cook and loved to learn, speaking 4 languages. It was important for Pietro to give back to his community, being a Doral native Pietro volunteered at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Doral, Florida where he acted as an Assistant Catechist helping 1st and 2nd graders study for their First Communion.
Although the BNI family only had Pietro for 4 months, his loss will be everlasting among us, a beautiful life cut so short. It has devastated us all.
We have started this GoFundMe account to assist Pietro’s family with the burial arrangements. Any help or donations would be greatly appreciated. We ask that you keep Pietro’s family and friends in your prayers as they navigate through this difficult time.
