John Joseph LaRosa

John J. LaRosa, 69, passed away on Saturday, December 10, 2011, at Froedert Memorial Hospital in Milwaukee.

John was born in Milwaukee on December 14, 1941, to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. LaRosa. He lived most of his life in the Milwaukee area before coming to Racine in 1985.

John had been employed as a driver for Zizzo’s Trucking Company for over 23 years. His favorite hobby was playing “scratch off” tickets. He also enjoyed working on things around the house and loved to work with tools. But most of all, he loved his children and grandchildren.

John will be dearly missed by his daughter, Heidi (Shawn Slater) LaRosa; son, Joseph LaRosa; two grandchildren Richard and Grace; sister, Fay (Michael) Coerper; brother, Jeff (Rocky) LaRosa; close friends, the Zizzo family; and family pet, Rocky “Horse.”

A memorial gathering in honor of John will be held at Wilson Funeral Home on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
