Leo Joseph Fiorini, 89, of Pittsfield, passed away on March 6th. Son of Leo and Rose Ranauro Fiorini; he was born in Boston’s Historic North End on February 17, 1931. Leo grew up in Pittsfield and graduated from Pittsfield High School in 1949.
Leo was inducted into the Army in 1952, where he served during the Korean War until 1954 when he was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant.
