Lazzaro “Linzy” Frisone, 88, passed away peacefully and entered into the arms of our loving Lord surrounded by family on Sunday, November 10, 2019.
Linzy was born August 23, 1931 to Donato and Antonetta (Cicorelli) Frisone in Akron and had been an area resident his entire life. He was an agent for Prudential Insurance for 23 years and retired in 1996. He was a devout Catholic who loved Jesus and was a faithful member of Queen of Heaven Catholic Church where Linzy and Mary were devoted to daily prayer at the Perpetual Adoration Chapel. He was also a member of MSC Italian American Club. Linzy will continue to be an inspiration to his family and friends with his gentle and genuine soul as well as his lifelong passion for flying that he instilled within others in the family. He spent his retirement years with his devoted wife traveling, mentoring others, enjoying family and friends, and loving every moment with his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Overnights at Nana and Papa's will always be remembered and cherished.
