Rocco Anthony Covalt Obituary
Rocco Anthony Covalt 11/13/57-2/20/12 Resident of Clayton Rocco went home to be with the Lord at sunrise on February 20, 2012. He was born the 5th of 8 children to Buz and Joan Covalt in Salem, Oregon. Rocco grew up in the Bay Area and was a General Contractor who specialized in high end custom homes. He had a special gift for building and design. He took great pride in his work and fulfilled his dream of building his own home in Clayton. He was an avid hunter and outdoorsman. His love for the outdoors started at a very young age. He had a menagerie of animals as a child, from owls and hawks, to chickens and snakes. He was full of knowledge and called himself a walking encyclopedia. He had a zest for life and his glass was always half full. We will miss his outgoing and social personality; he made friends everywhere he went. He was especially proud of his two daughters Michelle and Laura. He was their biggest cheerleader. He leaves a huge hole in our lives and will be greatly missed. He leaves behind his wife of 29 years Rebecca, his daughter Michelle (Rex) Sheridan, daughter Laura (Adam) Epperson, 3 grandchildren, Emily, Jacob and Taylor Sheridan. He was looking forward to his new granddaughter Harlow Epperson due in April. He was predeceased by his granddaughter Lyla Epperson and his brother Jeff Covalt. He leaves his remaining siblings, Kim (Jack) Harris, Ferrelee Covalt, Paula Horn, Dominic Covalt , Darien (Stan) Kraczkowski , Damon (Sherry) Covalt and many nieces and nephews. As well as hundreds of dear friends. Memorial service: Saturday February 25th at 2 pm, Calvary Temple Church, 4725, Evora Rd. Concord, Ca 94520
