In his younger years Rocco enjoyed fishing and visiting his friends in Ipswich. He loved being outside, especially tending to his tomatoes and basil in his garden.  When he wasn’t watching his favorite sports teams, he was probably telling stories to his great-grandkids. He could be found at Koko’s corner store playing his Keno and Daily Numbers, but his greatest joy was the time he spent with his family, especially at functions singing and dancing.

We have many great memories of Rocco. He was Dapper's mentor who guided him throughout his teenage years. Rocco was our daughter's Santa Clause and came to our house every Christmas. Eve. You could hear him coming up the stairs saying " Ho Ho Ho where's the VO".,that was Rocco! He loved his family and
was very proud of them and they of him. Rock, you will be sadly missed. Dapper and Jeannie
