In loving memory of

John A. Cocco
June 26, 1978 - September 5, 2021

John A. Cocco, on September 5, 2021, of Runnemede. Age 43.

Beloved son of John Cocco and the late Elizabeth Domeracki. Dear brother of Priscilla Pellicciotti, Francis Cocco, and Joseph Cocco. Devoted nephew of Priscilla and Martin Mascuilli, Frankie Domeracki, Richard and Carol Foley, Don and Barb Iddenden, and Sandra and David Fritz. Loving cousin of Brionna and Julian Mascuilli, Frankie Jr. and Joey Domeracki, Joy Foley, and Kelli and Danielle Iddenden.

John loved going to his aunt Priscilla's for Sunday dinner and watching Eagle's game with his Uncle Marty. He enjoyed fishing and was a fan of all Philly sports teams, especially the Eagles. John loved spending time going out for good food and listening to music, whether at home or at concerts, and making people laugh. He was a member of Local #692 Sprinkler Fitters Union. John was extremely handy - he could build and put together anything. Family was most important to John.

There will be a visitation Wednesday September 15 from 8:30am to 10:30am at GARDNER FUNERAL HOME, RUNNEMEDE. Memorial Mass 11am at Holy Child Parish, St. Teresa RC Church. Interment private.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in John's name to Tribe Intensive, 1475 NE Jensen Beach Blvd, Jenson Beach FL 34957 to offer sober living expenses to a struggling addict.

"Dear John, no words can ever describe how much I will miss you brother. That laugh, that classic smile. The great talks we had even in our lowest moments. You had the kindest heart of just about anyone Ive ever known. And never, ever, did I once feel judged in your presence. What I would give for one more hug. One more phone call. These tears cant stop my friend. I wish you knew how much you are loved. My deepest heartfelt prayers to Johns family and friends. "

"My heartfelt condolences for your loss, I had known John for 2 decades,he worked for me as an apprentice, beside me as a journeyman and with me as a friend and brother. Just 2 years ago I saw him last on our last job together. John Coco was in my eyes the shining example of a genuine human being, he cared about people and treated all equal and with respect? sadly there aren?t enough John Coco?s? in this world if so it would be a better place. My deepest sympathy, Tim Cleary Local 692"
