Aivaz, Joseph Franklin - Plainville (Plainville Citizen)  
PLAINVILLE - Joseph Franklin Aivaz, 81, of Plainville, husband of Barbara (Chapman) Aivaz died peacefully on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015, surrounded by his loving wife and children. Born in New Britain on Aug. 2, 1933, he was the son of the late Joseph I. and Veronica (Shamlian) Aivaz. A resident of Plainville since 1954, Joseph was a 33-year member of the Plainville Police Department, retiring as a lieutenant in January of 1992. During the Korean Conflict, he served as a sergeant with the U.S. Army, earning a Bronze Star for Valor. An active member of the community, Joe was a longtime supporter of youth-based activities, credited with being a founding member of the Plainville Police Association's Poville Pond in 1961, as well as a respected coach for the Plainville Midget Football League's Browns. In addition, he served as president of the Plainville Police Association, Chairman of the Conservation Commission and was on the Board of Directors of the Plainville Community Chest. In 1965, Joseph received the Distinguished Service Award from the Plainville Jaycees as Outstanding Young Man of the Year. A lifelong freshwater and saltwater angler, Joe loved the time he spent with his fishing buddies, especially his sons and grandchildren. In his later years, he returned to his childhood hobby as a pigeon fancier, and enjoyed watching them take flight on summer evenings. His favorite winter pastime included cheering on the UConn women's basketball team with his family at Gampel Pavilion. Most importantly, were the memories made by the simple acts of love for his children and grandchildren, thus leaving an unmatched legacy. In addition to his beloved wife, Barbara, he is survived by his children, Barbara Willard (Gary), Susan Fabrizio (Louis), Stuart Aivaz (Laura), Sandra Soultatos, and Lt. Col. (ret.) Jeffrey Aivaz (Michelle); grandchildren, Amy Fabrizio Hayes (Brian), Sara Fabrizio; Joseph and Kristina Soultatos, Katherine Willard, Cameron, Chloe, and Charlotte Aivaz, Madison, Connor, and Preston Aivaz; and great-grandson, Colin Hayes. He dearly loved his siblings, Benjamin Aivaz, Ruth Frisk (Stuart), Josephine Sabino and Veronica Sypek (Raymond); and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers, Michael, Jonathan, and Robert; and sisters, Lucy Benjamin and Anna David. Amongst those he left behind are his wonderful friends and neighbors including "the gang," all of whom he considered family. Calling hours were held at Bailey Funeral Home, 48 Broad St, Plainville on Sunday, Feb. 22, followed by a Celebration of Life. Burial services will be held privately.
