Antonio Pingitore was my great great grandpa. I have been reading The house on Garden Street right now. He was an amazing man and I love him even though I've never met him. May he rest in peace.

We were pleased to have Officer Pingitore reenacted at the 2007 History Walk at Green Ridge Cemetery in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was reenacted by his great-grandson. Many people attending the History Walk and saw the photograph of Office Pingitore thought that it was a photo of his great-grandson, they looked so much alike!

It was my Great Uncle, my Grandfather's brother, Earl Winfield Loveday who sot and killed this man.
I grieve the loss and pain he caused.

I left Kenosha as a young man 45 years ago without ever hearing about you. I discovered your story today at the Kenosha Historical Museum and was moved by it.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 93rd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

The book The House on Garden Street is the story of that. Antonio is my great great grandpa. I've heard this story since I was 5 or 6.

My grandfather, William Bienemann, was a fellow Kenosha officer at the time of your sad passing and your heroism made a strong impression on him and our family. With respect, and prayers for the peaceful repose of your soul and the well-being of your family and descendants.

To those who would like to know more about Officer Pingitore, I recommend Joseph Gallo's book "The House on Garden Street."
