Source:  Gioninos website

Ohio-based Gioninos is mourning the tragic loss of a valued member of its franchise family, Twinsburg Police Officer and Gionino’s Pizzeria owner Joshua Miktarian.  Officer Miktarian was shot and killed in the line of duty on Sunday July 13th while conducting a traffic stop.

Gioninos has replaced its website homepage with a touching tribute to its fallen franchise owner and his family:

Officer Miktarian had served with the Twinsburg Police Department for 11 years, was a Gionino’s Pizzeria franchise owner for 12 years and also served as a part-time officer with the Uniontown Police Department. He is survived by his wife, who is also a police officer, and 3-month-old daughter.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends and co-workers of Josh and Holly. Josh will be sorely missed and his memory never forgotten.

Donations to:
Josh Miktarian Fund
c/o the Twinsburg Police Association
Made at any Fifth Third Bank, or the Twinsburg Police Department

Our condolences go out to Officer Miktarian’s family.
