Joseph Dzizynski was born on January 10, 1914, in Jersey City, New Jersey. He was one of six children; his parents were both born in Poland.
He completed two years of high school, and when he registered for the draft in October, 1940, he was working as a laborer at Gibraltar Manufacturing Company in Jersey City, a company known for its manufacture of clocks.
He enlisted in the Army on January 19, 1942, and was released on November 25, 1945. At least two of his brothers also served in the armed forces during the war—his brother Jan had enlisted in the Marines in 1940, and served in the Pacific.
After being released from the Army he returned to Jersey City and lived there the rest of his life. He does not appear to have married. He died on September 8, 1988, and is buried at Holy Name Cemetery in Jersey City.
