Remembering Pierre Sicari
We recently lost a dear friend, Pierre Sicari. Pierre was my barber since my days with the Montreal Royals, but more importantly, he was a friend who I loved very much.
Pierre had a generous heart, was always willing and happy to help his friends and family, and loved being of service to others.
Pierre’s barber shop looked like a sports museum. He had pictures and memorabilia that would make any Dodger fan envious and impressed. He was always happy to show people each and every picture on his walls, and would love to tell a story or two about whoever was in the picture with him.
Pierre loved baseball and boxing. He would come to Dodger games all the time, and I was always happy to see him at Dodger Stadium. I met Pierre in Montreal when his parents, who were great baseball fans, invited me over to their house for dinner.
Of course he was a little boy at that time and every time I would come over we would play catch in his front yard.
When he moved to Los Angeles our relationship grew and our families became close. His wife Susie is as sweet as can be, and his here children are beautiful.
I am going to miss sitting in Pierre’s barber chair, but even more so I’ll miss his friendship.
