Pius was a wonderful man that was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. Our “grandpa/papa” as he was called by his grandchildren or “Butch” or “PJ” by his siblings, was an amazing husband, dad, big brother and jack-of-all-trades.

He loved spending time with his wife, kids and grandchildren which included hunting, fishing and spending time with friends and family at Cattail Bay. Pius also loved sports, especially football and was a true Vikings fan. He and his brothers even have a brick with their names on at the US Bank Stadium home of the Vikings.
