Rocco Cicero Jr.
Rocco Cicero Jr., 46 of Middletown, NY passed away suddenly on Saturday October 7, 2023. Rocco is a man who is larger than life, always had everyone around him laughing and smiling, constantly being the center of attention. Rocco is the fierce protector of his ladies in his life.

He loved watching the ponies run at any harness track. Rocco loves the NY Yankees but loathes Boston.
