HARRISBURG – Speaker Mike Turzai released the following statement on the passing of Rep. Florindo “Flo” Fabrizio (D-Erie):
“Rep. Fabrizio was a class act throughout his entire life. He was a strong voice for the people of Erie during his 16 years in the House, and his leadership and counsel will be missed by all.
“As Democratic chairman of the House Health Committee, Rep. Fabrizio worked in a bipartisan fashion and always sought to find consensus where possible. He was diligent, thoughtful and always respectful of the diverse opinions and backgrounds of his colleagues.
“Flo was also more than a colleague to many of us. We were honored to consider him a friend. We will miss his broad smile, his engaging personality and his impeccable sense for fashion.
We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife, Victoria; his daughter, Jill; and his stepsons, Anthony and Matthew.”
