I was saddened to read about the recent death of Hugo DiZinno, who did so much to promote the culture and appreciation of art in Payson. Hugo was one of my favorite people in Payson always positive and ready with a smile and a warm greeting, always good for interesting conversation. His talent and passion for art helped fill a great gap in the community's cultural life.
Hugo's energy and goodwill will certainly be missed in the Rim country. I hope others are inspired to continue his work. Godspeed, Mr. DiZinno.
