December 27, 1931 - September 5, 2021
Coleman Funeral Home of Olive Branch Pete Soro passed away on Sunday, September 5, 2021, at the age of 89. He was a loving husband and father to his family, and the favorite uncle to many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He loved to garden and always planted something, even if it was just tomato plants. Driving his tractor while pulling a trailer full of kids, and dogs, was always something he enjoyed. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. If he couldn’t find their game on TV he would find it on the radio. He also collected coins, and would buy extras of some to share with others. He was a member of Olive Branch Church of Christ where he led singing on occasion. He loved to sing the gospel songs at church and at home with his daughter playing the piano. He supported his wife and kids through the years with steadfast love. He would speak his mind on just about any topic. And of course would share a Dad Joke to make you laugh. In 1984 he opened his own Machine Shop, Pete Soro Machine Works. The business was not only his livelihood, but a hobby he thoroughly enjoyed. Pete met his wife Justine while working at Plough as a machinist. They were married in 1957 and recently celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary. Pete will be lovingly remembered by his wife Justine, his kids Mike, Theresa, and Tim [Karen]. He is also survived by a nephew, Jim [Paula] Ditto. He was preceded in death by his parents Pete and Theresa Soro, and his sister Mary Ditto. Pete (Dad and Uncle Pete) was deeply loved by his family and friends. His passing will leave a mark on our hearts and he will be remembered for a long, long time. A visitation with friends will be held on Thursday, September 16, 2021, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Coleman Funeral Home of Olive Branch. The family will also welcome friends one hour prior from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with a funeral service beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, September 17, 2021, at Olive Branch Church of Christ. A private interment will be held at Elmwood Cemetery. Mr. Mike Hixson of Olive Branch Church of Christ will officiate. Online condolences may left at www.colemanfuneralhome.com.
