Obituary

Robert Stoccardo (Bob, Bobby, “Pop”) passed away April 29th, 2022.  On August 26,1935 he was born to Michael Stoccardo and Carmella Moletterie Stoccardo.  Robert was the second youngest of eight children. He was born at home, above the family bakery in South Philly. In his youth, he was proud to serve in the U.S. Army Reserves. Later, he worked for General Electric before settling into a long career with Eastern Airlines. After beginning work with the airline, he moved his family of seven to Miami in 1969, remaining in Florida the rest of his days. An avid cook, Bob enjoyed making classic Italian American fare for the kids, often singing or whistling along to Frank Sinatra or to any number of the big crooners of yesteryear.

He is the last of a family’s generation. Along with his passage into the night, the stories of a first-generation Italian family sail quietly into memory; tales rooted in the hope that is Ellis Island. They were born and raised during the tumultuous days of the Great Depression and World War II within the bustling city of Philadelphia, an era and time which chiseled their character and personalities. The Stoccardo’s were funny, frank, loud, and loving. They will be missed.

The last time I saw Pop in January he was very weak but had the strength to get up, put on a Glen Miller CD, and tell us about weekend nights in South Philly, where he and his sisters would go dancing at the local hall. He missed them terribly. It is nice to imagine he is with them in that happy time and place again dancing away to big band music.

Bob is preceded in death by his son Robert (Buddy) S., his parents and siblings, Raymond S., Catherine DiBiassi, Mary Vassallo, Nicholas S., Frances Zambriczki, Margaret McCullough, Gloria Powaza and Barbara Pellechio.

Robert is survived by his wife of 64 years, Alice Maddox Stoccardo, their children Michael Stoccardo (Jane), Eugene Stoccardo (Rena), Brian Stoccardo (Stephanie), Catherine Mitseas (George), James Stoccardo, and David Stoccardo (Valentina) as well as their eight grandchildren Samantha, Zachary, Brianna, Matthew, Dean Mitseas, Elisa Mitseas, Anika Kennedy, and Terrill A. Wilkins (Alexa).

A service will be held at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Winter Park, Florida on June 24 at 10:00 a.m. For access to Live Stream, go to https://stmargaretmary.org/funeral-mass-livestream/

    So sorry to have heard of Bob’s passing. I worked with Bob for many years at Eastern Airlines. Bob was a very friendly man always full of stories to tell. An entertainer if you will. I’m sorry we did not know of his passing. We would have gladly attended his service. May you Rest In Peace Bob. Alice and family, we are sorry for your lost.✝️

    Bob (and his wife and children) always made me feel so very welcomed whenever Cathy, his daughter, would take me on a visit. I remember a paricular Mother's Day Sunday. I was unable to make the trip out of the country to be with my Mom and Dad. Bob had me join for lunch and afternoon fun. It was one of those experiences that left a beautiful imprint in my Soul.
    I and my family pray that a warm blanket of peace wrap all of Bob's loved ones during these difficult days.
    They have our love always ❤️
    RIP Bob
    Rosa, Scott and Sophie (the Jones)

    Bob had the great gift of good humor, even amid troubles. When I first knew him at Publix supermarket, he would sing or joke as he took out my groceries to the car. As his physical ailments mounted, he remained upbeat in spirit, a jovial soul, whenever I'd see him. I will miss his warm, friendly face. Lynn and I send our prayerful sympathy on his passing to Alice and the family. I know that Bob is relieved to be free of his body, which suffered too much in recent years. May eternal light shine upon him.
