I wish to extend my deepest condolences and sympathy to the Socci family. Larry was a good friend of my Dads, Anthony Raisley. My Dad sadly passed away 2 weeks ago. He was also a cousin to my Mom, Joan Socci Raisley. I went to school with Debbie so he always had a soft spot for me whenever he saw me. My Dad often spoke so kindly of the family. I'm sure Dad greeted him with open arms at heavens gate. Rest in sweet peace and may your family find comfort and love with all the memories you hold in your heart. God bless you all.

I was saddened to read of Larry Socci’s passing. My parents rented an apartment from the Socci’s in the early 1970’s and always spoke of Larry and Marie with fondness. My condolences to the Socci family.
