I am shocked and sadden to receive the news today that a longtime Westland business owner, the owner of Mangia Pizza and Catering Frank Chimento, passed away over the weekend. I don’t have any details on his passing nor if there will be a public viewing or service. I wish to respect his family’s privacy at this time.
Mangia Pizza and Catering has been a longtime business here in Westland owned by Frank and his family. It was a place I would frequently visit to pickup a pizza or calzone because they have one my favorites in Westland. Frank always made it a point to come out from the kitchen or around the counter and catch up with me. I was always very appreciative of not only his family’s small business but of the fact that he hosted and catered several events for me.
RIP to Frank Chimento. My thoughts go out to his family at this time. You’ll surely be missed by me and many others here in our community.
