PIZZI, Michael of Lexington MA (formally of Belmont MA) age 94, passed away on July 18, 2018. He was pre-deceased by his wife Alice in 2011 and is survived by his brother, Nicholas Pizzi of Belmont, nieces Angela Hodgdon of Belmont, Diane Heckley of Carlisle, Janet Pizzi of Waltham, and his nephew Nicholas Pizzi of Belmont, and their children. He was born in Belmont on July 19, 1923. Mike was honorably discharged from the U.S. army in 1945 after his service in Europe during WWII. After the war he attended and graduated from Charloff School of Music and was an accomplished clarinet player throughout his life. He became a barber and worked in his father's Copley Square shop for several years before entering into his family real estate business which he managed until the time of his death. His love of animals was evidenced by his generous contributions to animal care organizations. Mr. Pizzi originated the "Salvatore and Maria Pizzi Family Foundation" both to honor his parents and to provide college scholarships for deserving children. His family will remember Uncle Mike because he was always there for their many home renovations throughout the years to offer his boundless energy and expertise as a plumber, carpenter, and electrician.
Michael's remains will be donated to Harvard Medical School and will be followed by private family memorial service at Belmont Cemetery.
