Obituary of Nicola DiCocco
Nicola (Nick) DiCocco, age 87, of Trumbull, beloved husband of the late Rosa Creo DiCocco, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 26, 2023 at St. Vincent's Medical Center surrounded by his loving family. Born in Fontechiari, Province of Frosinone, Italy on December 1, 1935 he was a son of the late Antonio and Filomena DiCocco.
Nicola came to the United States in 1955 at the age of 20. He was a member of the Local Laborers Union 665 for 46 years and worked for various companies in the area. You could often find him in his yard tending to his garden and his lawn. But his greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was a loving and dedicated husband, father and grandfather. The unconditional love he gave and the values he taught will forever live in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.
