James Fizzolio Obituary
September 12, 1919 - August 10, 2015 James Michael Fizzolio passed away surrounded by his family on August 10, 2015, in Westlake Village, CA. Born September 12, 1919, in Lodi, New Jersey, James was a graduate of Wesleyan University and Yale Law School, and he began a distinguished career as an attorney on Wall Street. He later moved to Southern California where he and his twin brother, Tom, opened the firm Fizzolio and Fizzolio in North Hollywood, California, where he practiced for more than 20 years. Later, he was a partner in the law firm Fizzolio & McLeod. He was a member of the Los Angeles Bar Association, Unico, and the San Fernando Bar Association where he was recently honored for more than 50 years of service. His family and friends admired Jim for his positive outlook, generosity, honesty and his diligent work effort. He never backed down from a challenge and knew how to enjoy the simple things in life whether it was a sunset, an early morning game of golf, or listening to classical music. He cherished his family and was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. His contagious laugh, kindness, and compassion will never be forgotten and he will be dearly missed. Jim was a loving husband to his wife Joyce who passed away in 2004. He is survived by his children, Cecile Butters, Carolyn Trocino and Laura Pistotnik, grandchildren Jamie Butters, Carly Butters, Kendra Butters, Nicole Pistotnik and Brett Pistotnik. Sons in Law Aaron Butters and Michael Trocino. Rosary services will be held Wednesday, August 12 at 7:00 p.m. at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Mortuary in Westlake Village, CA. The funeral service will be at Oakwood Memorial Cemetery on Thursday, August 13 at 10:00 a.m.
