  • Mr. Izzi was a great teacher and made learning interesting. He worked with each student to help us in any way he could. He was a great person who cared about people and was a very kind, enjoyable teacher. Math was not one of my favorite subjects, but he turned that around. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family in their loss! He touched many lives throughout his time! I was gratefull to be one of his students!

  • What a great loss to such a tender family. May you all feel the grace of love and the many years of his louch. Love to you all.

  • I am sharing your sadness this week. 91 years is wonderful to celebrate. One of my favorite scriptures that comforted me several times is : “God holds precious the death of saints.”. Blessings…

  • Gina, Karen and Sharon….it is so hard to lose a father no matter how long you had him with you! My memory of your dad was that he was such a handsome man and very friendly to me whenever I came to your house during high school. I wish I could be there to give you all a hug.
    My sympathy to you, Mrs. Izzi. I will keep you all in my prayers on Friday.
