Saverio Bizzarro

Saverio (Big Sam) Bizzarro Troy – Saverio (Sam) Bizzarro, 83, passed away peacefully, in his sleep, on May 9th while holding the hand of his beloved son Peter. Sam was the son of the late Peter and Mary L. Ciampolillo Bizzarro and was the beloved husband of the late Rosaria Volpe Bizzarro. While still a student at Troy High School, part of the class of 1954, Sam was an apprentice to North End Iron Works and purchased the business during his senior year. Throughout the Capital District, Sam designed and fabricated the finest ornamental ironworks of his time, including work at Russell Sage College and countless homes and buildings over the last sixty-five years. With all his heart, Sam Bizzarro loved and was loved by his many family members and many friends. Sam was the father of Peter Bizzarro and appreciated the outstanding care that Peter provided for him. Survivors also include his sister Mary Phyllis (late Ralph) Valenti; sister in-law Nina (Joseph) Walden; an uncle, several cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. In addition to his wife and parents, Sam was predeceased by his sister Beatrice (late Louis) Valenti. Sam had a great heart, a great mind, a great talent and a great soul. He always did his best. He was a communicant of St. Anthony of Padua Church. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Burial will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Troy, next to beloved wife. In lieu of flowers, memorial contribution in Sam’s memory to St Anthony of Padua Church 28 State Street, Troy NY 12180 would be appreciated.

Peter, sorry to hear the sad news. Going back a lot of years, I knew Sammie very well, he was a genius, very hard worker and a very kind man. A very good friend and someone you could trust. I will always remember him fondly and will miss him. I regret that I haven't kept in touch over the years. My wife and I would like to attend the memorial service if we can, so I hope that you will post the date in the Times Union. Thank you and God Bless! Norm Jarvis
