However, the funeral cars will first drive by The Pizza House restaurant in Cowgate, which Pep had been associated with for almost 40 years. The restaurant will remain closed for the day out of respect.

Pep, a father-of-four, who passed away in Peterborough City Hospital on September 26 after suffering with kidney problems, will be buried at 1pm at Fletton Cemetery.

Pizza House owner Rinaldo Fasulo said he hoped his brother’s many friends would attend the services to pay their respects and remember his life.
