Peter Rocco, age 72, passed away on December 29th after a two month struggle with declining health due to heart disease. He was a loving husband to his wife of 52 years Nancy (Mateycik) Rocco, and a devoted father to his children Jennifer (Dave) of Redding, Christopher of Greenwich, Peter (Sandie) of Milford and Andrew (Lisa) of California. He was an adoring Pepa to his granddaughter Leena Rocco. He is also survived by his brother, Raymond Rocco, Jr (Peggy) of Greenwich, his sister Rosemary Belfiore of Florida, his sister-in-law Elaine Buschmeyer of Cos Cob, his brothers in law John Mateycik and Albert Mateycik of Greenwich, and his nieces Kellie Ambrogio, Sharon D’Emidio, Frances Brown, Kristin Coppola and Sarah Buschmeyer. Peter was born and raised in Port Chester, NY. He was the son of Raymond Rocco, Sr. and Carmela (Briganti) Rocco. Peter graduated from Port Chester High School and then entered the U.S. Air Force and served as an aircraft mechanic for four years stationed in Dover, Delaware, Hawaii, and California. While stationed in Delaware, Peter married his high school sweetheart, Nancy. After his Air Force service, Peter and his young family settled in Byram, where he lived until his passing. At that time he joined his father and brother in the family auto body business, Ray & Sons Auto Body in Port Chester. After 25 years in the auto body business Peter took over the morning concession at the Riverside railroad station where his friendly “good mornings” started the day for his many commuter acquaintances. After giving up the train concession, Peter joined the staff of the Greenwich Water Club as early morning receptionist at the Fitness Center. Even at 5 am, Peter had a cheerful greeting for the clients and he valued the friendly interactions with them. Over the years, Peter had many interests. He loved golf and worked part time for several years as a ranger and starter at the Griff Harris Golf Course. Fishing was another of his favorite activities. Most recently he got involved with building miniature ship models from scratch and modifying his Lil Red Express truck. Prior to Covid, he also had a regular poker night with friends of many years. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends and many acquaintances. There will be a private viewing for family only. A mass of Christian burial will be held on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at 10:00 A.M. at Sacred Heart Church, 95 Henry Street, Greenwich, CT. Burial to follow at Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, NY. In lieu of flowers please donate to a charity of choice in Peter’s Memory.
