Edward J. Curzon, 91, of Sycamore died peacefully in his home on Saturday,

proud recipient of two service medals upon his honorable discharge in
April 1947. 
 
Ed returned from military service and graduated from Manhattan College in the Bronx in 1951 with a degree in Business Administration.

Ed was a loving and caring husband and father to 11 children (affectionately known as “Pop of 11”), and he worked tirelessly to provide for all. He began his professional career with Anaconda Wire and Cable in New York, and he was subsequently transferred to Muskegon, Mi and Anderson, In. In 1963, Ed was transferred to Sycamore. He worked for Anaconda for nearly 30 years. Ed finished his professional career at Northern Illinois University, working in the Masters of Business Administration program.

JOBIT: Scinto, Ernest [MC1951 RIP] 2018-Jul-29

Ernest Scinto, 88, owner of the Back Fence
August 2, 2018 | Filed under: News,Community,Obituaries | Posted by: The Villager
BY GABE HERMAN | 

Ernest Scinto, who owned and ran the beloved Bleecker St. live-music venue the Back Fence with his brother Rocco from 1958 until its 2013 closing, died July 29. He was 88.

Scinto’s health had been worsening the past three years from the effects of Parkinson’s disease, though his mind stayed sharp to the end, said his daughter Marilyn.

Ernest Scinto grew up in Little Italy on Mulberry St. He was born on Oct. 28, 1929, “the day before the stock market crash, he always liked to point out,” his daughter Lori recalled.

He attended Transfiguration School, on Mott St., for primary school, going on to Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx.

After getting an undergraduate business degree —“He was a proud Manhattan College graduate, he loved that school,” said Lori — he went to graduate school at New York University, working toward an M.B.A. But when his father died, he dropped out to take over the Back Fence with Rocco.

The Back Fence, at Bleecker and Thompson Sts., was opened in 1945 by Ernest’s father, Ernest J. Scinto, and uncle Silvio. Before that, they had run the Pioneer Nut Club on the Lower East Side, which featured female impersonators.

It was originally called the Back Fence Bar, but when the folk music scene hit the Village, the focus shifted to live music and it just became the Back Fence. Throughout the years, performances were mostly cover songs and mostly acoustic.
