May 25, 2015

WOONSOCKET – When he was a little younger, Richard Fazzio, now 90, would tend to the small veterans’ memorial at Market Square and Arnold Street whenever he passed by on a walk.

Fazzio grew up in the Globe District on Lincoln Street, and the plaque honoring the city men killed in World War II from that neighborhood bears the names of people he knew.

Among the nine honored are the first city resident killed during World War II, Arthur Favreau, and also Fazzio’s brother, Frank Fazzio, who was just 23 when he was killed fighting for the Army on Leyte in the Philippines on Dec. 2, 1944.
