of Elmira, NY: Age 55, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 with his loved ones and his beloved dog "Lucy" by his side.

He is survived by his companion, Sharon Weaver; sisters, Rose Marie Monserrate, Bonnie Carrasco of Austin, TX; Nancy Coppola; brother, Michael Coppola; his special uncle, Ralph; along with nephews, many cousins and close friends. Rocky began his career in California where he became a successful and respected contractor. His love of the river since his boyhood days brought him back to Elmira where he resumed his two passions; building homes and fishing on the river. His work ethic and skills earned him a reputation as a man with exceptional talent. A very special thank you to Kate, Marybeth and Linda from Care First (Hospice) for their invaluable kindness and support.
