CIOCCA SAMUEL R. (SAM)
Age 82, passed away on September 19, 2016. Born on December 24, 1933, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the late Angelo and Helen M. (Ricci) Ciocca, he remained a lifelong resident of Pittsburgh. Sam graduated from West View High School, attained a degree from The University of Pittsburgh, and served in the US Army. He started his career as a branch manager for Sears, Roebuck and Co. and evolved into a very successful entrepreneur investing in real estate and owning and operating many small businesses. He was active in multiple community organizations. Sam was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by brother, Felix (Dorothy) Ciocca of Mogadore, Ohio; nephews, John F. (Michele) Ciocca, James E. (Annie) Ciocca, and David P. Ciocca; nieces, Ann M. (Glenn) Ciocca, and Elaine R. (Christopher) Yuhos; many great-nephews and nieces. Sam is also survived by special friend, Jeff (Brenda) Hummel and a host of other friends and relatives. He was fun-loving, an avid sports fan and shared it all with his many, many friends until the effects of Parkinson’s disease chronically and progressively debilitated him. He suffered for the last 20 years. Sam was extremely generous to all and was a loving member of the family. He will be greatly missed. Friends received Friday, 5-9 p.m. and Saturday 10:30 a.m. until time of Blessing Service at 11:30 a.m. at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME, INC., 806 Perry Hwy., North Hills. – See more at: http://m.legacy.com/obituaries/PostGazette/obituary.aspx?n=SAMUEL-R-CIOCCA-SAM&pid=181500296&referrer=717&preview=True#sthash.2AYOZ0gV.dpuf

    I have fond memories of Sam’s time in Huntington. He made many friends while he was here. My Mother was his secretary and I also worked at Sears on 29th Street. I saw him in 1978 when I was in Pittsburgh for CPE.. I talked with him a few times since then and Had hoped to see him when I was in Pittsburgh for the Marshall/Pitt game this weekend. I was looking up his number to call him when I found his Obit. I know his family will miss him. He was a great Guy
