You lit up a room with your presence my cousin.  So many happy times and fond memories I will carry with me.  You always made us laugh, always entertained.  Rest in peace cousin.

I am honored and blessed to have met this wonderful man. He always treated me and my husband like part of the family. Don always had a smile on his face and joy in his heart. He will surely be missed.

The Old Gang. Fondly remembered. Gusty with attitude. Independent Italians who loved fast cars, hard work and pretty babes... Does that sound like someone we know? Don was to me bigger than life. He was a force like a wild wind with a kind eye, a wink and a smile, shifting gears and spinning off...

This amazing man was Pop to us.  He was a natural at making everyone feel like family.  Goodguys car shows were a great place to meet with him and catch up with the latest news.  The last time we were together was at the West Coast Nationals last August.  It won't be the same without him.  You were blessed to have him in your lives so long.  So were we.  He was one of a kind.

Turning 73 this year makes my lifelong association with Don Rocci a 60 year event.  He has been an inspiration to me over those years beyond words.  We were friends, associates and contractors who worked together throughout those years.  I can't begin to express what a mark he made on me with his everlasting smile and warm and honest friendship and an ICON to those of us who knew him well.
