Attached is the death record of my great-great-great grandfather, Stefano David.

I want to know his occupation. It looks like "pojtore" to me.

Thanks! Is it safe to assume he was a shepherd, and not a religious pastor since he was married with kids?

His father was just a 'contidino' if that has any relevance.
