John Pente died Monday at age 100. If you didn’t know Mr. Pente, but have been to a Friday summer movie night in Little Italy, you know his generosity — they’ve been projecting movies from his third floor window since the festival started in 1999.

Last summer, we talked to Baltimore Heritage director Johns Hopkins about the Centennial Homes project, which identified families who had remained in the same home for 100 years. They celebrated the launch of the project in Little Italy with Mr. Pente, whose family had lived in the same house for 104 years.

Today, in remembrance of John Pente, we’re reairing a bit of the conversation Sheilah had with him, his daughter Marge, and Johns Hopkins.

    Hi I’m John Pente’s Great Granddaughter, I would like to thank you for this wonderful tribute of my “Poppy” (which is what we always referred to him as). I am creating a shot video to represent the full life my great grandfather lived and I was wondering if you could send me this radio discussion you had of him, I would just love to have his voice in the tribute. Thank you very much.
