Peter Vincent Roccapriore, 59, of Southington, CT, passed away on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at his home unexpectedly. He was born in Meriden, on August 15, 1959, son of Vitaliano Roccapriore and the late Joan C. (Wieloch) Roccapriore.

He is survived by his loving wife of 12 years, Jennifer (Pilon) Roccapriore, his son, Nicholas, and Jennifer’s children, Kayley, Eddie, and Dylan, whom he affectionately referred to as his own. He is also survived by his six siblings, Daniel, Diane Breen, Teresa Vitelli, Vincent, Anthony (Tera), and Marie (Erik) Shanahan. Left to cherish his memory are his many beloved nieces and nephews: Carl, Charissa (Joey, Bobby), Bridget, Mary, Joseph, Jaclyn, Ashley, Alessandra, Nathaniel, Angelique and Rose.

Peter graduated from H.C. Wilcox Technical High School in 1977 with a trade in carpentry. He attended Middlesex Community College for business management and went on to build a successful construction company. He was passionately involved in JA (Junior Achievement) and giving back to the community. In his teens, he trained as a boxer and was awarded Golden Gloves. Peter took pride in being a master carpenter and working as a security officer for Middlesex Health. He was also a road manager for his dear friend/musician Jeff Pitchell, which brought him many years of joy and excitement.

Like his father, Peter shared a love for motorcycles. “Rock” as many people called him, supported countless rides and charity events. He was a dedicated father and a very loyal husband. Pete’s generosity, storytelling, and gut-busting humor will be missed immensely.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial to be held on Monday, March 18th at 10 a.m. at Our Lady Queen of Angels, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Campus, 109 Goodwill Ave, Meriden. Everyone is asked to meet directly at the church. Burial will follow in In Memoriam Cemetery, Wallingford. Family and friends may call at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main St., Meriden, CT 06450 from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 17th.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Pete’s memory may be sent to the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, c/o the Roccapriore family. Checks may be made payable to Jennifer Roccapriore. For online condolences, please visit

It was a pleasure to know "Roc". I worked with him at MH. He was always looking out for everyone. I send my condolences to his friends and family.

Hillcrest Ave and the Roccapriores - this means family forever. The Kane family has a life time of memories and friendship. We feel deep sadness and pray daily for his entire family. There are no words other than we care and send our condolences. I hope Pete is saying Hi to his Mom and even Jack & Pinky who I am sure have open arms around him already as well as many others who went before him. Pete will be alive within all that knew him forever in our hearts.

I have known Peter since the first day he started working at Shoreline. So many laughs we shared. He shared so much with me and just this past Sunday I saw a side of this wonderful man I really had not seen before. Talked about a subject for about an hour. He helped me out a lot. Thank you again Peter for your kindness. This man had a heart beyond Gold. Before he had to leave the desk, he ALWAYS asked me if I would be ok. I was also working with him on Monday, not a day I really ever work but so thankful I was there. Shared more laughs. Pete would give you the shirt off his back. “Ya know what I mean!???” Pete’s saying we all heard often. I have so many stories to tell, but not enough room here! God bless you ROCK.💗. My deepest sympathy to his family. He spoke of you so often, especially his loving son, Nick. What a gift it was that you were able to spend the wonderful time with him recently in Florida. God bless, Deb Ziobron

I worked with Pete at MH. Last Wednesday we talked so much about his family. We laughed so hard about some of his stories from when he was younger. He definitely had a way with telling stories. I will miss him. He was a sweet man. Thank you Pete for your amazing gift of compassion and sense of humor. With love, Rebecca Babak
