Well-known local, “Piasano” Hajara was found dead on a pier where he often spent the night. Piasano had been feeling poorly, and was found early on New Year’s Eve. He has been a colorful “tourist attraction” for many years, as well as being able to bring smiles to many locals as they tolerated his generally good-hearted antics. Piasano will be well-remembered in countless photos, and stories of his history on our island. Paisano is seen here posing with long time island visitor Yvonne Temsik at BC’s Bar. A full eulogy commemorating his life will be printed next week in The San Pedro Sun.
