JAMES J. JR., suddenly on Nov. 20, 2011. Spc. US Army. Beloved husband of Lisa (nee Tronco), devoted father of Alyssa, Joshua, Joseph and Giovonni, dearest son of James J. and Debra (nee Kulikausky) Pizzo, Sr., son-in-law of Isabel (the late Joseph) Tronco, grandson of Delores (the late Charles) Kulikausky and the late Jacob J. and Margaret M. (Ellis) Pizzo, brother of Edwin Dunfee, Melanie Pizzo and the late Karla Ervin; brother-in-law of Shawn Ervin, Lori (Stephen) Wilson, Tara Tronco and Ramona (Dominic) Coppola; also survived by many nieces and nephews.


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.
