Last Known Activity

Retired from U.S. Merchant Marine, unknown where or when. He had sailed tankers for ESSO and later Exxon Mobile.

The family portrait at the time of the photo shown, Pedro may very well have been sailing tankers for Esso. The woman in the picture is my mom, Helen Isabel Ebbesen/Dahlstrom, and the little girl is my sister, Laura Marie Dahlstrom all deceased now.

Pedro Llantada was a favorite uncle of my mom's family of 5 sisters, & one brother. He visited us often. As my mom put it to me one day, "whenever he got tired of the fast pace" of New York City, and Philadelphia.

Pedro is burried in the South Cemetery, off Route 122, in Orange, Massachusetts.
Other Comments:

Parts of Pedro's record is missing, and I'm not next of kin, but related through my mother. Pedro Llantada was my mother's uncle. So some of the details here are going to be sketchy. But as of now I believe Pedro retired from the U.S. Navy as a SD1 in 1949. Some years ago before my mother passed away, she gave me Pedro Llantada's Navy service record. I have to admit I was astounded, yet honored to be entrusted with these documents. I vowed to somehow keep the memory of Pedro Llantada alive for as long as I live.
