Obituary

Christina Louise Tocco aka “Tocco”, 43, of Holly Hill, Florida, went home to be with Jesus, Thursday, July 08, 2021.

Christina was born June 29, 1978, in Daytona Beach, FL to Marshall Tocco and Gail MacLean. She played softball her entire childhood (short-stop) but lastly for Seabreeze High school where she graduated in 1996. Ormond/Daytona Beach was her hometown, stomping grounds and the place she chose to raise her family.

In her life, Christina was the “Life of the Party” and collected a mind-blowing amount of friends from ALL walks of life. She had one criteria to keep company with you…. love to laugh! She embraced her Italian heritage, was PROUD of her last name and made a name for herself with her exuberant personality. Christina was incredibly hard working and a dedicated employee. She found her niche as a restaurant server and boy did she LOVE this position that allowed her personality to SHINE. She loved her “job” and was EXTRAORDINARY in it. This showed in a steady stream of people, time and time again specifically asking for HER to wait on them; to others giving her 180% of the total in a tip! From starting out at Bennigan’s on “beachside” as a young woman, to thriving at the famous Charlie Horse and choosing to spend the last 15 years building relationships and brightening her customers days at D.B. Pickles in Ormond Beach, FL. All would agree that whether you knew her 5 minutes or 5 years…. you remembered her for a LIFETIME!

The GREATEST passion in Christina’s life however, was her CHILDREN! She loved her “babies” and gave HER ALL everyday to being a MOM. She always said, it was her greatest accomplishment and the one thing she KNEW she did right in life! She was their LOUDEST supporter and FIERCEST protector. She was ok as long as they were ok.

Christina was SO many different things to SO many different people and she WILL BE dearly missed by everyone that had the privilege of knowing her.

She is survived by her fiance Dan Zavalick of Holly Hill, FL; children, Sophia and Sebastian Tocco; Shelby and Leigha Zavalick; sister and brother-in-law Marissa and Wayne Smith of Ormond Beach, FL; sister Laurie Ahola of Holly Hill. FL; nephews Nicholas Varnes and Landon and Logan Smith, her uncle Dr. Anthony Tocco of Daytona Beach, FL and countless cousins, aunts, and close friends. She was preceded in death by her Father, Marshall Tocco and her grandparents.

A Celebration of Life service and gathering will be held at 11:00am, Saturday, July 24th at Tomoka Christian Church, 1450 Hand Ave., Ormond Beach, FL, 32174.

Charitable donations can be made to the Trust formed to support the ongoing care of Christina’s Children: https://gofund.me/393ec93d

    My friend and I give blood every 56 days right next door to D.B.Pickles. After we have donated, we walkover to the restaurant. We`ve been doing this for quite a while. This`s where we met Christina. Such a ray of sunshine, so friendly to everyone, and what an outgoing sweet woman Christina was. Today, was our donate day. When we were seated, I was looking around for her. I said, Diane, I don`t see her today. A few minutes later we were talking with one of the waitresses. She started telling us that one person had passed away. For some reason, I said, was it Christina? She replied yes. Tears were welling up in my eyes. I believe Christina was telling me it was her before we were told. For some reason GOD needed her more. You were here a short time, but you definitely left your mark. You have left us here on Earth, but your heavenly spirit carries on. Deepest condolences to your family, and especially your children. R.I.P. Christina Louise Tocco.

    You are my second mom. You never missed a performance, you held me when I cryed, you welcomed me into your home, you loved me like I was your own. I can never put into word the amount of love I have for you. I miss you so much. I can’t wait to see you again one day.

    YOU my friend, will FOREVER be missed! You have touched so many lives and made everyone feel so unique. You made us all feel so important! Your laugh will be FOREVER playing over and over again in so many minds of all of us that had the upmost privilege to hear it, and be a part of YOU! YOU are a “Legend” that will live on for several generations! To be very honest, I’m in such disbelief that you are gone, which is ok for now. I know my personal faith along with yours as to where you stood with God! We WILL MEET AGAIN… BUT until then, FLY SO EVER HIGH, LAUGH SO EVER LOUD, and KNOW YOU ARE MISSED BY MANY! We already know you are watching over Dan and your family giving them the strength everyone needs. You have your babies right under your wing even if it’s from a distance. Not saying good bye this Saturday, just saying until we can laugh again! Our hearts here on earth beat differently have knowing you! ❤️

    There are people who come into our world that right away influence us. Christina, you were that person!
    You were the one whose heart and smile could be felt for miles. You made us laugh, you made us feel welcomed, and you shared so much love! My parents and I enjoyed our many encounters with you. None of us understand why God needed you so soon. We will miss you, remember your amazing personality, loud fun, wonderful mother you were, and be praying for your children. May those prayers reach your family and may you rest in peace. Fly high beautiful angel!
    With love,
    Crandall, Kay, Sandy & Shannon Sizemore
