Pat Ciccone was born in Solano, Reggio Calabria, in 1906. He came to Canada in 1922, where he resided for six years. In 1928, Ciccone returned to Italy to get married. He returned to North America with his wife, Maria, and settled in New York for five years. Pat and his wife decided to return to Canada in 1935.

Music was his passion, and the expression of this art was the sound of his accordion. His face was always smiling and radiant during his performance. He opened a musical instrument store in Windsor. Later, Ciccone started teaching music lessons, passing on the talent to the new generations.

 
Pat Ciccone's accordion was often heard in Windsor's clubs, festivals, and celebrations. He was frequently accompanied by his brother, Frank Ciccone, and together they expressed the elegant sound of their music.

Pat Ciccone was generous, happy, friendly, and ready to help in sad circumstances.
