Hector Jesus Rucci

Hector Jesus Rucci, a dedicated man who touched the lives of many, has sadly departed from this world on March 8, 2024. He was born on July 9, 1937, in Córdoba, Argentina, and throughout his remarkable life journey, he embodied resilience, creativity, and unwavering compassion.

Hector's professional path led him to work for over 40 years at Fairchild Republic as an aircraft mechanic. His expertise in this field not only showcased his exceptional skills but also reflected his commitment to excellence. His early years saw him immigrate from Argentina to the United States to pursue education and establish a career while nurturing a beautiful family with whom he shared countless cherished memories.

Beyond his career accomplishments, Hector will be remembered as a devoted husband of 43 years to his beloved wife Nancy. His role as a loving and caring father and grandfather brought immense joy and comfort to his family. Hector's creative spirit shone brightly through his resourcefulness and willingness to lend a helping hand to all in need. He found solace in simple pleasures like happy hour gatherings and crafting unforgettable family vacations that filled the hearts of his loved ones with laughter and love.

Hector's personality was defined by kindness and generosity, traits that endeared him to everyone he met. His special touch in preparing chimichurri was a delight for the kids and a testament to the warmth he radiated in every aspect of his life.

In the hearts of those who survive him, Hector leaves an irreplaceable void. His memory will be cherished by his wife Nancy, son Daniel and his partner Kristen, daughter Erica and her partner Timothy, daughter Karen Lima and her husband Greg. He is also survived by his adoring grandchildren Giovanni, Angelena, Gabriello, and Lilian
a,His brother Eugenio and his wife Maria Rosa, and his other brother Miguel and his wife Vilma. 

The legacy Hector leaves behind goes beyond words – it lies in the love he shared so generously with friends and family alike. As we gather to honor his life, let us carry forward his spirit of compassion and unity.
