John J "Jack" DeLucco, Sr. 92, of Westbrook, husband of the late Angela "Babe" (Mascolo) DeLucco
passed away peacefully surrounded by friends and family at a celebration for his granddaughter, Morgan, on the eve of her wedding. He was born in Hartford on Nov. 15, 1924 to the late Thomas DeLucco, Sr. and Josephine (Erico) DeLucco. Jack was a lifelong resident of Newington where, together with Babe, raised their two children before he made his permanent residence in Westbrook. He was employed by both Helco and CL&P. Jack was a WWII veteran having proudly served in the US Navy aboard the PC 1210. At the age of 80, he began oil painting and loved to give his paintings away to anyone who admired them. He enjoyed spending time with his family, golfing, the beach and volunteering at his church. Jack took great pride in recounting the tale of "hammering every nail myself" in the house that he resided in. Jack will most be remembered for his love of his family, his willingness to lend a helping hand, his generosity, his ever present smile, and his homemade ravioli. Jack is survived by his daughter, Nancy Manke of East Hartford, his son, John DeLucco, Jr. of Palm Harbor, Fl. his daughter-in-law Joanne DeLucco of Niantic, his granddaughters and their spouses Morgan(Manke) and Zak Valle of Norwich, Nicole and David Padilla of Niantic and two great grandsons Emanuele and Alesandro Padilla. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and many dear friends especially Jack & Betty Colody. The family will be forever grateful to Dr. Suzanna Thomas and her entire staff for taking such wonderful care of him for many years.
