GIACOPPO, Richard C. “Ricky” of Norwood, passed away on May 11, 2019. He was 34 years of age.

We lost our beloved boy, Ricky. There are no words to describe our insurmountable grief. We had the joy of having Ricky with us for the last two months at home. We spent time together walking his dog Lady, binge watching our favorite shows, laughing at silliness, supporting his hope of getting in shape, and dream of working at the MSPCA where he once volunteered. He went to school at UMASS Boston for substance abuse as a counselor and hoped he could one day return to complete the program. He was looking forward to spending more time with his brother’s, Chris, Nick and their girlfriends, Katie and Virginia that he loved so dearly. In the past few weeks, Ricky spent time with his Grandmother Sissy, Grandfather Pa, Auntie Cheryl, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was so appreciative of these good times with them. Ricky’s family was everything to him. Ricky was a special soul and like no other. Anyone that had the privilege of meeting him experienced his incredible hugs, and his fierce loyalty. He had a beautiful smile, quick wit, and a sense of humor like no other. He could always make us laugh even during the toughest of times. Since early childhood Ricky had a passion for reading. His bedtime books consisted of four sometimes five books. He continued his love of reading throughout his life. Ricky was an intelligent man that could have done anything.

We lost our beloved son after his long battle with substance use. Through all the pain and joy we loved him with our hearts and souls, and never gave up hope that he would beat this insidious disease. We pray he is at peace and is with his Grandmother Nana and Grandfather Butch who he loved and they loved him so very much. There will not be a day that we don’t continue to love him and miss him so very much. We will carry him in our hearts and souls until we meet again.

Beloved son of Richard M. and Bernadette M. (MacDonald) Giacoppo. Loving grandson of Matthew Giacoppo of Burlington and the late Thelma, Mary “Sissy” O’Neil of Watertown and the late Henry “Abie” MacDonald. Devoted brother of Christopher and Nicholas Giacoppo of Portland, ME. Ricky is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Funeral services will be private.

I'm so sorry to see this and for your loss. This breaks my heart.

I remember Ricky back when I played at my cousins house (Kerry, Nick, Chris and Joy) who lived right next door to him in Norwood for many years. I used to go over and play Mario Kart on SNES in his basement with him. We were both very young, but I remember we always had such a good time and he was such a nice kid with a good heart and good head on his shoulders.

Ricky, I say a long prayer for you today. God bless and God forgive. You seemed to have affected many people and I'm sure will live on in their hearts for the rest of their lives.

-David Asgarian

Richie, Bea, Nick, and Chris,

My heart breaks for your family and the pain you are in with Ricky's passing. Sitting here writing this now, I know there are no words that will take that pain away and I feel like "I'm sorry for your loss" seems hardly enough. Please know that I am grieving with you and am ALWAYS here if you need someone to chat with, someone to lend a hand with anything around the house, or an ally to continue to fight against this disease that is taking far too many lives. Sending you love, thoughts, and prayers.

-Amy (and Kallie)

Ricky was the sweetest soul with a heart of gold and he will be missed by all of us for the rest of our days. I am so grateful I was able to see him and have Pa’s Sunday dinner together 2 weeks ago. We laughed and joked with Pa and it was so amazing to see him doing so well. Some of my fondest memories of Ricky are of us on our family trips to Aruba and especially of how much he loved our Nana Thelma. They would sit and play cards and talk for hours and I know in my heart they are together again, watching down over us now. I pray Ricky you are now at peace and just know how much you are loved by us all. You may be gone in body but will live on with us in spirit forever.

I’m so privileged to have had Ricky in my life for so many years. I will forever cherish every memory. He was so very loyal to those he loved, and cared for. I’m so proud to call him my best friend. This world, and life will never be the same without him in it, but I know he will always be watching over us.

My deepest condolences go out to Richard, Bernadette, Nicholas, Christopher, and the rest of the family. This is a great loss, and he will forever be missed.

Fly high my lil boo boo bear Ricky Rockstah! Love you to the moon and back!

With love,
Chrissy

RICKY AND I WERE VERY CLOSE
RICKY WAS THE SWEETEST KINDEST CARING KID I KNEW AND HE MAY BE GONE BUT HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN AND WILL ALWAYS HOLD A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART FOREVER.

ESPECIALLY WHEN WE WERE AT A YOUNG AGE I NEVER LOOKED AT HIM LIKE YOU WOULD A COUSIN I ACTUALLY CONSIDERED HIM MORE LIKE A BROTHER BECAUSE WHEN WE WOULD SEE EACH OTHER WE WERE ATTACHED AT THE HIP. CHRIS AND NICK BOTH UNDERSTAND THIS AS WELL BECAUSE IN OUR FAMILY WE MAY BE COUSINS BUT WERE ALOT CLOSER THAN THAT AND THATS ALWAYS BEEN THE WAY.

AS WE GREW OLDER WE KIND OF WENT OUR OPPOSITE WAYS BUT THE LOVE AFFECTION AND RESPECT WE HAD FOF EACH OTHER WAS ALWAYS THERE.

THIS IS SUCH A HARD DAY FOR MY AUNT BEA UNCLE RICHARD AND CHRIS AND NICK AND I WISH I COULD BE THERE TO HELP MY FAMILY THROUGH THIS TOUGH TIME. I WANT THE 4 OF YOU TO KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU IM SO SORRY AND I MISS ALL OF YOU DEARLY.

RICKY TOUCHED EACH AND EVERYONE ONE OF US AND THE MEMORIES OF VACATIONS AND GOOD TIMES I HAD WITH HIM WILL BE WITH ME FOREVER.

AS HARD AS THIS DAY IS FOR MY FAMILY AND MYSELF WE HAVE TO ALL TRY AND REMEMBER RICKY IN A POSITIVE LIGHT BECAUSE HE WAS ONE OF A KIND AND AS SAD AS THIS IS I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT RICKY GIACOPPO WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED AS BEING THE KID WHO COULD ALWAYS GET YOU TO SMILE NO MATTER HOW BAD THINGS WERE.

HE MAY BE GONE BUT HES NEVER GOING TO BE FORGOTTEN. I LOVE YOU RICKY I KNOW YOUR WATCHING DOWN ON ME HOPING TO SEE ME SMILE BECAUSE THATS THE LIGHT YOU ALWAYS BROUGHT TO EVERYONE WHEREEVER YOUD GO.

Our hearts are broken. Our prayers and support are with Richard, Bea, Chris & Nick who must try to find the strength to assuage the pain of losing Ricky. We last saw him a week ago laughing and smiling while working in the Yard. It was so encouraging to see him lately. Throughout the years he always had that smile and upbeat persona even in the midst of his personal journey. As a family we saw the ups and downs and we all prayed that Ricky would be okay. Today we grieve his passing but in the days & years to come we will find peace from the memories he leaves us with. As a family our peace will not come soon enough nor without difficulty. For our beloved Ricky his peace has now come and perhaps that may be the only thing that makes any sense of all this.
