Joseph Edward " Joe " Cucci

January 29, 1947 — August 20, 2020

Joseph Edward Cucci entered this world in Brooklyn, NY on Jan. 29, 1947 son of Joseph and Lillian and passed on Aug. 20, 2020. He was predeceased by his loving wife Kathy. He leaves behind a host of friends and family including his brother Robert and sister-in-law Carol. Susan, the mother of his 2 sons. His son Scott, daughter in-law Carla and grandsons Joseph and Michael. Son Todd, daughter-in-law Kyra and grandson JT. Niece Lauren and nephew Michael. And his fiancee Elizabeth Hammond. In addition, he leaves behind a host of extended family and his beloved fraternity brothers of Upsilon Pi of Paul Smith College and Alpha Tau Omega of Stephen F. Austin State University.

In many ways Joe was larger than life. He had his first legal drink at the age of 18 at McSorley's Old Ale house in NYC and never looked back. He always lit up a room (or cigar) and could outdance anyone at a wedding reception. To say he lived life to the fullest is an understatement. Skydiving, bungie jumping, running with the bulls, burning man and DMT are just a few checks off the bucket list for him. We will miss his backwards hat, passion for sports (like the Yankees and golf) and love of family. When you get a chance, raise a glass of Tito's, or whatever you prefer and drink one for him. You know he would want you to. "You're a long time dead"!
