Every Friday, Art and his son would eat at Mazzulli’s Pizza in Fontana – it was his son’s favorite. Art, who owns Best Golf Carts down the street from the Fontana establishment, got to know Pat Mazzulli and his family. His wife, Kim, even purchased Pat a custom golf cart from Art after Pat’s beloved golf cart was deemed beyond repair.
In 2019, over 20 years after the Fontana pizza institution shuttered, Pat made stacks of pizza in his outdoor smoker that he converted into a pizza oven and brought it to Art’s son’s funeral.
“I was so upset and overwhelmed that day,” recalled Art, “but the moment Pat walked in with those boxes… I just felt a sigh of relief.”
Art never got a chance to fully express to Pat how much his seemingly small gesture meant to him.
