Peter DiFronzo (May 13, 1933 – December 4, 2020) was an American mobster. He was the brother of John DiFronzo (former leader of the Chicago Outfit)[1] and Joseph DiFronzo.

DiFronzo was supposedly a made man,[1] and stands at 5'8 and weighs 185 pounds.

In 1965, he was arrested for interstate stolen property and served ten years in prison. He was featured in William F. Roemer Jr's War of the Godfathers: The Bloody Confrontation Between the Chicago and New York Families for Control of Las Vegas in 1990. His wife, Josephine, is part owner of D&P Trucking, located in Chicago, Illinois, though authorities believe it is Peter and his brothers Joe and John that actually run the enterprise.[2] Peter is also supposedly active in some of the Outfit's racketeering schemes.[3]

He has a conviction for transporting stolen goods and served time in Leavenworth.[4]

DiFronzo died on December 4, 2020 in North Barrington, Illinois from pneumonia caused by COVID-19, aged 87.[5]
