Thomas Herman Martocci

March 10, 1948 — April 27, 2020

Thomas Herman Martocci, 72 of Huntersville, North Carolina passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 27, 2020.

He was born in Hartford, Connecticut on March 10, 1948 to the late Herman Martocci and Ann Mancaniello Martocci.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister-in-laws, Mary Martocci and Donna Youngs, his brother-in-law, Louis Vozzolo, Jr. and his nephew, Robert Youngs, Jr.

Tom is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, April Vozzolo; daughter, Lisa Reger and husband Jared of Cornelius, NC; beloved grandchildren Natalie and Marcus; brothers John Martocci and wife Terri Ann, and Joe Martocci and wife Jean; brother-in-law David Vozzolo and wife Ann; brother-in-law Robert Youngs; as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Tom grew up in Hartford, CT, graduated from Buckley High school in ‘66, graduated Fairfield University in ‘70 with a BS in Business Management degree and earned an MBA from University of Hartford.  His entire, successful career, 40+ years was spent working for Aetna Insurance Company where he was a highly respected Director in IT overseeing the Data Centers of the company; dedicated to his job and his team, investing in them both personally and professionally.

A diehard NY Giants and Boston Red Sox fan, Tom was a selfless, extremely generous and caring individual who always put family before himself.  He was always smiling and laughing - that laughter was infectious and uniquely him.  His happy places were hanging at the pool, in front of the grill cooking for family and friends (aka the “grill master”), at the golf course with friends and in the presence of his grandchildren who brought him an infinite amount of joy and got him through the hardest fight of his life, beating pancreatic cancer at 70 years of age.  Tom relished his years in retirement, traveling and seeing many parts of the US, Caribbean and Europe with his wife and friends and playing golf several times a week.  Tom had a positive impact on so many lives, and his memory will remain in our hearts forever.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, P.O. Box 1848, Longmount, Colorado, 80502.

Tom’s family welcomes everyone to remember and celebrate his wonderful life through a virtual memorial service on Saturday, May 9thfrom 2 – 4pm.  The first hour of the service will be reserved for family members only.  Everyone else is welcome to join us at 3pm via the Zoom link below.

Opening Prayers led by The Reverend Carmen Germino, Rector, St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, Davidson, NC

Scripture Reading John 14:1-6 by Reverend Germino

Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going." Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him."

The Lord’s Prayer (Reverend Germino and Participants)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Scripture Reading Psalm 121 by Lisa Reger

I lift up my eyes to the hills;

from where is my help to come?

My help comes from the LORD,

the maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved

and he who watches over you will not fall asleep.

Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel

shall neither slumber nor sleep;

The LORD himself watches over you;

the LORD is your shade at your right hand,

So that the sun shall not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

The LORD shall preserve you from all evil;

it is he who shall keep you safe.

The LORD shall watch over your going out and your coming in,

from this time forth for evermore.

***Thank you all for helping us mourn and celebrate Tom in this very unconventional way, albeit the only way we are able to gather at this time.   Please know that all of your kind words, thoughts and prayers have helped us get through this very difficult time.***
