Obituary

Frank V. "Moe" Vizza, 90, of Belle Vernon, passed away from complications of COVID-19 on Monday January 31, 2022 in Penn Highlands Mon Valley Hospital. He was born on February 7, 1931 in Monessen, the son of the late Emilio and Tressa (Zimmaro) Vizza. Moe attended Monessen Schools and went on to join the U.S. Army serving his country during the Korean War. After coming out of the service he worked for Magura's Clothing selling men's suits. He then became a salesman for the John G. Check Furniture Store in Monessen and later for Freight Liquidators in Pleasant Hills. In addition to being a salesmen, Moe was president of the New Alpine Club in Monessen for many years where he also bartended part time. Moe was very involved in the Monessen community having served on the school board for the City of Monessen School District for 14 years, was a member of Epiphany of Our Lord Church, the Knights of Columbus #954, American Legion Post 28, and V.F.W. Post 1190 where he was currently serving as Commander, and a former long time member of the Monessen Lions Club. When you ran into Moe, he would have a smile on his face, a cigar in his mouth, and would be giving the raspberries to someone. Left to cherish his memory are his three daughters, Charlene (Edward) Fechter of Taneytown, MD, Doreen T. (Gary) Smith of Monessen, LuAnne (Daryl) Johnson of Mount Washington; sister, Rosalie Nicksich of Monessen; two granddaughters, Janell Johnson and Abigail Smith; his companion of 21 years, Becky Wilson; and by nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Irene (Perotti) Vizza in 1999, two brothers, Alfred (Dorothy) Vizza and Joseph (Joann) Vizza, and a brother-in-law Ralph Nicksich. Friends will be received on Thursday from 2 to 4 pm and 6 to 8 pm in Dalfonso-Billick Funeral Home Inc. and Cremation Services, 441 Reed Avenue, Monessen. Services will be held on Friday beginning with a Blessing service at 9:30 am in the funeral home followed by a 10:00 am Funeral Mass in Epiphany of Our Lord Church with Rev. Michael Crookston as celebrant. Entombment will follow in Mon Valley Memorial Park Mausoleum, Donora. The family kindly requests everyone attending the viewing and services to wear a mask. The K of C #954 will conduct a prayer service on Thursday at 7 pm in the funeral home.
