"Courage is fear holding on a minute longer"

Rocco R. Muzzipapa, 91 of Colorado Springs, Colorado, died on May 7, 2017 at the Union Printers Home. He was member of Divine Redeemer Catholic Church.

Rocco was born in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey on July 25, 1925 to Rosario Ross and Katherine Lucy (Santoro) Muzzipapa. He was a veteran of World War II.

As strong-willed as he was kind, Rocco was a man of simplicity and true honor who remained devoted to his faith until the end. He was filled with generosity and charity on top of wit and wisdom, which so many cherished.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Eleanor E. Muzzipapa.

Rocco is survived by his children, Rocco R., Jr., John A., Stephen S., Joseph W., Anne I., and Christina M. Muzzipapa; his sister, Rosemarie Muzzipapa-Mapp; grandchildren, Nathaniel J. (Lisa), Eleanor E., and Gina D. Muzzipapa, and Annie (John) Orleans; great-grandchildren, Matthew R. and Heather N. Muzzipapa, and Ashton and Megan Orleans; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

We read in the Bible that Jehovah God will: "Swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) Like a father who removes the cause of his children’s suffering and dries their eyes, Jehovah takes great joy in bringing death to nothing! Jesus cooperates with him. We read at 1 Corinthians 15:22: “In the Christ all will be made alive."

Dear friend, I am sorry for your loss. Its not an easy process when a person you loved has past away. And I know words can't do a lot. Just remember that Jehovah God is the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). Once again, I am sorry for your lost friend.
