Retired Charlotte County Sheriff Capt. Peter “Skip” E. Sbarbori III passed away Saturday, March 26, at the age of 63. He died doing what he loved: tending to his newly planted spring collection in his yard. Sbarbori was born Sept. 30, 1947, on Long Island, N.Y., to parents Peter and Edna Sbarbori. He relocated to Florida in the late 1970s and joined the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Department. He is survived by his wife, Joyce; his children, Jennifer, Marcella and Anthony; their mother, Marcella;, his stepson, Robert; grandchildren, Brandon, Brianna, Marcella Ann, Michael, Jacob and Megan; his mother, Edna Sbarbori; sisters Joan and Irene; and many nieces and nephews.
He loved remodeling and construction — but always the family first. He will be forever in our hearts and embedded in our memories for the rest of our days. Rest in peace, we will always love you and miss you Skip.
