ROCCO MORRA God called Rocco suddenly on June 6, 2011 from his residence at the age of 64. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Georgina. He will be cherished by his dear daughter Christine (Sebastian). Proud Poppy to Gabriel and Xavier. Rocco will always be remembered by his sisters Felicetta (Luigi) and Antonietta (Vincenzo) and brothers-in-law Dominick (Dee), Frank (Eileen) and Anthony. He will be held dear in the hearts of his nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and many friends and neighbours. He was predeceased by his loving parents Carmelo and Vicenza Morra, his parents-in-law Dominick Sr. and Jean Lore and his sister-in-law Theresa Lore. After arriving in Canada from Italy at the age of 9, Rocco was determined to be an accomplished and travelled man. He travelled the world, earned a black belt in karate, golfed avidly and was involved in his community through the Knights of Columbus.
