Johnny Persico passes away
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Very sad news to report.

Johnny Persico, operator of Pina Pizza House on Paramount Boulevard, died unexpectedly today. He had been hospitalized for a hip surgery.

If you didn’t know Johnny, he was a gregarious, kind, and extremely compassionate individual. He was also blessed with an incredibly sharp wit, which made him a very fun person to be around.

Our condolences to the Persico family.
