Staten Island, NY

Denny Pizzini, Sculptor and Civil War Historian, 88, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 3, 2024. He was born in Brooklyn in 1935 to Angeles Martinez of Madrid, Spain and Umberto Pizzini of Riva Del Garda, Italy, both immigrants who loved this country dearly. This love and pride was passed on to their highly creative son and avid history buff. He served towards the end of the Korean War on a U.S. Strategic Air Command Base as a staff Sergeant and Crew Chief of a B-36 in the 70th Bomb Squadron. It was there that he gained first hand experience painting popular "pin-up girls" onto B-36 bombers. Returning home to New York City with no aircraft noses to paint, he transformed his favorite pin-up girls into sculptures, creating a handful for friends and family. After serving he took over the family printing business, Modern Litho with his brothers, Jose and Pierre. Modern Litho was started by their father Umberto in the late 1920's who made his living as a successful commercial artist, master calligrapher and lithographer. Denny moved his family into his dream home on Staten Island that he designed and helped build at the end of 1965 just as the Verrazano Bridge was opened. He loved nature and as a teenager camped on Staten Island. He would take his bicycle on the Brooklyn Ferry before the bridge was built and spent many days at the beach there as well. In the late 90's, Denny resumed his sculpture-making with his signed edition "dennydolls" ©. Denny loved living on Staten Island and truly loved helping his friends and neighbors when he could. He was a member of the Southshore Artist’s Group, VFW Post 1574 - The Blazing Star Post and a member of The Colonial Club since the 1960's. His passion for history led him to form an historical reenactment artillery battery, Winslow’s Battery D. For more than 40 years he attended historical reenactments, competed with artillery and presented to school groups. Community was so important to him and so were the arts. He also loved the Opera, to travel and loved to dance, especially the Lindy. He was a loving husband and father. You can describe him as just mad about life. He recently celebrated 61 years of marriage to his love, Julieta. We miss him greatly. Denny is survived by his wife, Julieta; son, Gregory; daughter, Denise; grand children, Darby, Emiko and Noriko; Brother, Pierre; Nieces and nephews and extended family in Spain'
