Rocco J. Urciuoli turns 100 years old tomorrow (Thursday).
He was born at home in Westport on May 2, 1919. He grew up here with 7 siblings. He was drafted into the Army, served in World War II from 1941 to ’45, then returned to Westport. He’s lived here ever since.
When asked for advice on a life well lived, he said, “be real. Take it as it comes.”
He enjoys grapefruit every morning, and a scotch with dinner every night.
“06880” — and all of Westport — join Rocco’s 3 children, 8 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren in wishing him the most wonderful of his century of birthdays!
