Salvador "Sammy" Charles LoCicero, age 81, passed away on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, in New Orleans, La. Sammy was born on July 20, 1932, in New Orleans, La., to the late Charles Joseph and Loumae LeBlanc LoCicero. He was a veteran of the Korean War, having served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1951 to 1960. He married his wife, Marian Glydine Grimes, on September 17, 1955. Sammy worked as an electrician for G.E. and on July 29, 1959, at the age of 27, he was electrocuted with 13,800 volts, which resulted in third-degree burns over 65 percent of his body. After this tragic accident, he fought for his life for many years, and as part of his rehabilitation, he developed a love for the game of golf. He is survived by his devoted wife of 59 years, Marian; his sons, Dabney "Chef Duke" Ewin LoCicero and Vincent "Rocky" LoCicero; his daughters-in-law, Kelly and Janine LoCicero; three grandchildren, Crystal, Nicholas and Lauren LoCicero; his sister, Theresa L. Sarpy; his aunt, Noel Arena; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Memorial Service on Monday, June 16, 2014, from the Garden of Memories Funeral Home, 4900 Airline Drive, Metairie, La., at 1:00 PM, where the visitation will begin at 11:00 AM.
