It is with great sadness that I report that my cousin, Jeffrey Vincent Scocchio, passed away yesterday, May 15, 2017 at the age of 73. Jeff was a great guy, and a great cousin. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see him much growing up. For a while, after my parents had moved to Florida, Jeff and his wife, Maryann, moved close to them. It was great seeing them every time I went to visit my parents. I know my mother really loved having them down there. She loved Jeff and Maryann, and she loved debating various topics with Jeff. When Jeff and Maryann moved back to NJ, they moved close to my brother, Jack, so every time I would go up there to visit Jack, we would go over to visit Jeff and Maryann. I always looked forward to those visits.
Jeff, I’m so sorry that you are gone, but I’m sure that you are with your Mom and Dad, Grandpa and Grandma, and my mother and father. I can’t imagine what you and my mother will be debating about, but I’m sure you too will find something! I’m hoping that Grandpa has a basement up there, and you get to go down there and grate the cheese! Rest in Peace.
