Rocco Taylor Pascal Santoro 1980 — 2018

Rocco Taylor Pascal Santoro

Rocco Taylor Santoro resident of Kamloops passed away on April 27th at 91 West Seymour Street, he was just days short of his 38th Birthday.

Rocco was born in Kamloops, where he was also raised.  He attended Dufferin Elementary school and graduated from Sahali Secondary.

He worked for a short time at the End of the Roll Carpets and received three best salesman awards. Rocco went to Grande Prairie to be a janitor at the hospital. He then went to a sheet metal shop. He decided to make this his trade, having moved to Calgary to work and do his apprenticeship program at a sheet metal shop. Through the program he went to S.A.I.T and received his red seal journeyman papers in sheet metal.  His one big job was helping in the construction of the pediatric hospital in Calgary and was very proud of that.

Rocco decided to come home and he worked in Kamloops as well as the oilfields in Northern Alberta. Rocco began having some mental health issues and through the mission and programs offered by Kamloops he began getting help and getting back on his feet.

A service was held at Kamloops Funeral Home on Monday, May 7th. In honour of Rocco’s memory donations may be made to the New Life Mission, where you can send an e-transfer directly admin@newlifekamloops.ca  or by mail P.O. Box 712 Station Main, Kamloops, B.C., V2V 5L7

Speaking with the gentlemen that lived around Rocco and others that I met, they will remember him as a man that loved laughter; his compassion for others was always his most endearing quality.

    I am sorry for your loss. I haven’t seen Rocco in many years, but I’ve been reflecting fondly over the memories I have of Rocco from our childhood. I very clearly remember his smile, and how it could light up a room and bring such a positive energy to whatever space he was in. I hope that you are surrounded by friends and family that can help celebrate Rocco’s life and cherish the good memories that we all have of him.
