Dominic DiFrisco, 'a giant in Chicago's Italian community,' 85

We have many golden memories of Dominic and will never forget them. He has been a friend of ours since we started the Hall of Fame. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the Italian community during this difficult time.

DiFrisco fought to save the name of Balbo Drive from what he called “revisionist history" and criticized stereotypical depictions of Italian mobsters.
