Michael J. Rizzo, age 73, of Akron, Ohio, passed away July 5, 2019.
Mike was a talented barber, musician/keyboard player and DVD cover designer. He did what he loved, played music on the 4th of July, the night before his passing. Over the last ten years, Mike served as a website Moderator evaluating others’ custom DVD cover designs.
He loved his wife, family, friends, his music and his pets. He truly saw his barbershop customers as friends who were a huge part of his life. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for them. He loved a good spaghetti sauce, a good steak, smoked meat, fried chicken, Starbucks and fresh tomatoes from the Holland Farmers’ Market.
Surviving are his wife, Diane Bunse; son, Damon Rizzo of Lansing; daughter, Adrienne Smith; grandson, Aidan of Florida.
