The Minnesota State Patrol identified the man who was killed in a single-car rollover on Interstate 35 the morning of Sept. 6 as Ioannis “John” Pitsavas, 32, of Northfield.
The crash closed the highway’s southbound lanes for more than three hours just before rush hour.
The Pitsavas family owns Basil’s Pizza on Water Street in Northfield.
I worked for John (at least I think it was John, I don't remember any brothers) for one summer in Northfield while his notorously crabby father was off in Greece. He was a good man, and a good boss.
