My husband James was called "Pizzo" by everyone, he was known in south west philadelphia by that name and everyone knew him or of him. He had the biggest heart and loved 1000%, he had a saying that goes.."I got your back" and when he gave you his word he kept it. My husband was a
family man and a amazing Father. He loved video games, food and music but most importantly his children. His favorite foods were Chicken Parm and spagetti pie. He always had to wear a brand new white T-Shirt with a pair of brand new Jordons that he would were once or twice and
put them back in the box as if he was collecting them and they would be worth money one day. He was a protector, a friend and a veteran hero of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
