Mauro A. Crocetta, 72, passed away surrounded by his family on March 19, 2019.
Born in Jersey City to Giuseppe Crocetta and Mary Crocetta (nee. Perrella) on November 24, 1946, Mauro was a life-long resident of Hoboken. As he grew, Mauro was guided by his faith and a foundation built as an altar boy. In 1964, he graduated from Hoboken High School. Mauro was dedicated to his work and put in long hours over 40 years with Erie Lackawanna Railroad/Conrail and then New Jersey Transit to support his family. Some of his favorite times with family included trips down the shore, Walt Disney World, and cruises. He especially treasured a recent trip to Italy to spend time with family, experience new places like Molfetta, Sicily, and Rome, and even attend a Papal audience.
Mauro’s memory will be cherished by his loving wife of almost 49 years, Elizabeth Crocetta, his two chidren Lizabeth and Joseph, his granddaughter, Angela, and his sister, Angela Eaton.
