Anthony J. DiRocco, Jr.
Anthony, 62, 4th generation Italian American resident of San Pedro, passed away on Thursday, April 5, 2012 at home. Anthony was born on May 1, 1949. He was an elementary school teacher for many years at Barton Hill and Taper where he was greatly loved for his wonderful sense of humor and his Donald Duck imitations, but most of all for his care and dedication to the children. Anthony's Catholic faith was at the heart of his life, and he served the Church as a Eucharistic minister and as a choir member. He is survived by his beloved wife and soul mate, Theresa; his children, Brother Cassian (Michael) DiRocco, O.S.B., Armando Perezselsky (wife, Erica), Cecilia Conant (husband, Joseph) and David Perezselsky; his mother, Lucy DiRocco; his sisters, Laurine DiRocco, Carla Emerson (husband, Dennis), Camille Currier (husband, Bill) and Donna Piazza (husband, Carlo); and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was a man of great love whose memory will live forever in our hearts. Anthony's funeral Mass will be held at Holy Trinity Parish in San Pedro on Monday, April 9 at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 1280 W. Santa Cruz Street, San Pedro, CA 90731. May he rest in the peace of Christ. Please sign the guestbook at mcnerneysmortuary.com or dailybreeze.com.
