Perrillo, Rocco “Rocky"
It is with great sadness that the family of Rocco “Rocky” Perrillo announces his passing on Wed, April 18th, 2018 at the age of 91 after a battle with Alzheimers. He will be remembered by his wife of 67 years Norma and his 3 sons, Michael, John and Stephen. He will also be fondly remembered by his 4 grandchildren, Daniel, Jonathan, Christopher and Andrew and by his brother Mike and sister Mary.
A celebration of life will be held at Babione Funeral Home on Saturday, April 28th at 3:00 pm, located at 10060 Calle Comercio Drive, Boca Raton. At 4:30 there will be a brief military service and prayers. Born in the Bronx to Italian immigrants, he grew up with 6 siblings that had strong family values and an unbelievable work ethic that was handed down to this family. Rocky was a WWII Navy veteran and extremely proud of his service including going in with the marines during the invasion on Okinawa in the South Pacific.
Everyone who knew him will always remember his love of music and how much he loved to sing for anyone who would listen.
In memory of Rocky, the family asking not to send flowers but is so desired, make a donation to Alzheimers Foundation of America. www.ALZFDN.org
