George Toriello sent me this information on June 6, 2017 about his Uncle Joseph Fazio, the older brother of Bostafatano A. Fazio, who was Killed in Action in 1945. 

Joseph Fazio died many years later after his brother on June 8, 2001.

Another uncle of mine, not on website.

FAZIO, Joseph

b. 3/1/1921 (NYC, New York)
d. 6/8/2001 ( Buried St. Joseph's, Hackensack)

U.S. Army

Uncle Joe dropped out of 8th grade (most likely attending Broadway school) to go to work for his uncle in the painting contracting business.  Census shows that on 4/1/1935, he lived in Hackensack. 1940 Federal Census shows Joseph Fazio had moved to Bogota. Sometime just after World War II, the Fazio family had moved to 120 Louis St., Hackensack.
