Thomas S. Cozzoni passed away suddenly after suffering a massive heart attack on September 27th.
He was doing what he loved, working in his yard. The four homes we shared over 59 plus years our yards were his joy and therapy.
Tom was born in Dekalb Illinois on February 10, 1938 to Berniece (Witchousky) and Abraham Cozzoni.
At the age of 8 his father passed suddenly leaving an older brother Frank Cozzoni responsibility and obligations to a single mother, which formed him into the man he became, responsible, caring and most of all a loving human being.
In 1956 after graduating high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, after basic training he was selected to serve in President Dwight D, Eisenhower Honor Guard. He was so proud to be part of this elite group of soldiers.
In 1964 I believe it was a gift from God that I had my first date with this amazing man. We were married in January of 1964. In 1965 he became a State Farm agent in Aurora Illinois.
We were blessed with two beautiful children Maria Lynn and Michael Vincent Cozzoni. After living in Oswego Illinois for 23 years we moved to Elburn Illinois. Being a State Farm agent for 36 years he retired, and we moved to Melbourne Beach Florida, lived beachside for 22 years in 2018 brought us to Viera Florida.
His greatest love was his family and the love for his wife to provide and protect was his devotion to his family.
As a hobby he was an American Kennel Club licensed judge for Afghan Hounds. The Afghan was the breed he had so much affection for and brought him happiness and opportunity to judge.
The void he has left us with is so deep, the only solace we have is he is with his son Michael and walks with the Angels.
