Edward J. Morocco, 63, of Bristol, beloved husband of Susan (Couture) Morocco, passed in the comfort of his own home surrounded by his loving family on Sunday (July 12, 2020). Ed was born in Bristol on December 7, 1956 and was one of three children of the late Eugene and Eleanor (Castagna) Morocco. He was a lifelong Bristol resident graduating from St. Paul Catholic High School in 1974. He had a career in retail with various retailers such as Edwards, Big Y, and Lowes. Ed was proud of his Italian heritage and served on the board of directors of the American Italian Civic Club as well as being a member of the Lenola Society. He was a fan of the Jeopardy Game Show, the Raiders, and the Orioles. He enjoyed his childhood summers at the family cottage at Twin Lakes in Northwest Connecticut and was a devoted husband, proud father, loving son, brother, uncle, and friend. The most important things in Ed’s life were “great family, great friends, and great food”. In addition to his wife, Ed is survived by his daughter: Amy Morocco and husband, Richard Szlama of Watertown; a sister: Mary-Anne Harrigan and husband, Thomas, of West Hartford; nieces: Sarah Pandoursky, Christina and Anastasia Harrigan, and goddaughter, Emily Harrigan; and great-niece: Scarlett Pandoursky.
