It is very difficult to put into words the feelings that we have for Lieutenant Rocco. Lieutenant Rocco loved to train and pass on his wisdom to new recruits. His knowledge has trained and transformed all of us to become the best officers we can be. His legacy will continue to grow and be passed on to future recruits.
Lieutenant Rocco has taught and touched my heart more than he will ever know. He will never be forgotten, always respected and greatly missed by many.
Rest in Peace my brother, we have it from here.
Love, prayers and hugs to you and your family.
love Lisa

I was shocked when I heard the news that Rocco had passed away. I have tremendous respect for him and enjoyed working with him in my time with the Sherriff's Dept. I enjoyed his stories and his teachings and the most important thing to him were the safety of family and friends. He had a hard surface but once he considered you a friend he was a friend for life. Prayers and condolences from the Delvisco Family

Too many memories to recall. But besides you teaching me how to make pasta braciole, you taught Heather (granddaughter) and I how to hit the punching bag when we were small children; it is the most vivid memory I have of you. One that was the most sincere and honest and just you and us. You were and will always be loved. Until we meet again Papa. Also pictured is my Papa with his wife Cathy and his grandchildren

Today.... I received the best news,since the Lord called you home.. Alexander Funeral Home,just called. They told me that you were ready to come home! Such bittersweet words. I'm so happy,but yet sooo sad; just opening the flood gates of emotions,rushing to my heart at once. My beloved husband,My heart,my soulmate .
Roc ,you were my world. I don't understand, how I live and breathe without you here with me. My heart betrays me with each breath. We had such a strong love for each other! We were such a great team,in everything we did together.
I see little signs, that you are with me,they comfort me,they console me.
I was thinking, the silly things we did together,such as " talking faces", coloring together,being each other's
Sous-chef', awesome meals together,shooting for lunch, our silly ring tone for each other, dancing together, while there was no music,just the beating of each other's heart, holding hands, reading each others eyes and the love that was shared with little notes and antics. The love messages to each other,such as;
Always you
Always me
Always us
Always

And

Side by each
Together both
More better that way

And

I love you 24 7 365

Except now ,its..

Forever you
Forever me
Forever us
Forever

So..now, that I must learn, I have to travel this journey alone, I will be forever grateful, that God had given you to me. Thank you,baby, for sharing your "dash" with me!
Till we meet again,my love
I'll forever love you
24 7 365

Your Soulmate and Best Friend
Cathy

You once asked me what is in my Dash. I asked what you meant. You said between the day you were born to the day you die.
I thought about this and your DASH
September 17, 1945- December 24, 2020
Your family who misses you:
Son to Rocco and Sarah Dominic
Husband to Cathy Stephens Dominic
Ex-Husband and friend to Mary Darleen Dominic
Brother to Joy, Janice, Joseph and Casey
Father to Roxsann, JoyAnn, and Rocco III
Stepfather to Amy-Lynn, Jamie, Patrick
Numerous Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren
Uncle to so many nieces and nephews
The part of your life you loved the most besides your family above was the family you had at the Sheriff’s Office. You worked at the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office for 35 years. This was one of your greatest loves. Training officers, taking pride in what they learned. You spent many hours talking about how proud you were of the officers. How you knew they would be safe because you trained them. This mean so much to you. You thought of them as your brothers and sisters and that is how you spoke of them. I am sure they will miss you.
Your life was rich not in a monetary way but with what you did. You taught us so many things. Right from wrong. You even taught us how to drive a car and to cook.
Things you learned and loved in your life:
• Teaching -your family and extended family
• You learned to fly and was very good at it
• You restored cars and raced them
• You hunted deer in Idaho
• You loved to go camping
• Your loved animals. You had two dogs and a parrot. Those dogs Luca and Noel adored you. Pepe the parrot thought you were “pretty cool”
• You loved to cook, have big family meals and holiday gatherings. You loved to make us laugh.
• You were a great truck driver and loved the “road”
• You loved riding motorcycles
The list could go on forever, but I think the thing you loved the most was LOVE. You loved the idea of love.
Rocco Anthony Dominic Jr. personifies the word LOVE. You lived it. That is your Dash.

Love - Janice

Here is a picture of us in Idaho.

Dad, Casey, Bob, Janice, Rocky and Wendy.

I baked 15 loafs of Zucchini Bread and gave it to you, Dad and Casey for your trip in the truck. And you guys called me from Wyoming (the next state) saying you were out of Zucchini Bread.

I laughed until I cried.

Miss you big brother.

There have been two full Catholic Masses said for you and three perpetual remembrance daily Mass and prayers being said for you.

I remember when you were an Alter Boy. Your were mischievous but honorable during Mass. I remember sitting in the church trying to make you laugh while you were doing a Mass.

Brother Casey tried as well to make you laugh but you got your turn when he was an Alter Boy.

As an Alter Boy brother Joe was very serious and never blinked an eye . I don't think he appreciated how we tried to make you laugh. :)

Now that you are with God now, are you still being mischievous but honorable? I think so. :)

Love you Big Brother.
