Izzy was a talented, and caring man, who enjoyed playing the odds of a casual gamble. He was born and raised in Cerva, Italy, but later immigrated to the US in his early years, and proudly served the US Navy during the Korean War. He owned Izzy’s Billiards for 30 years and enjoyed the thrill and excitement of taking chances at the pool table, at the race track, or a hand of poker and pinochle.
