Rocco Joseph Badiali, 27 of Minotola passed away February 9, 2020. He was born in Stratford, NJ and graduated from Buena Regional High School in 2010.
Rocco was The Chief Operations Officer at ZillSpace and Blocktistics. Him and his closest friends invested serious time and effort over the past couple of years and Rocco's work ethic and dedication never went unnoticed. He was a batteries not included type of person. You gave him the plan and he brought the energy and execution. Rocco was an all-around amazing person, loyal, loving, hardworking and most of all, kind-hearted.
From a young age, Rocco immediately fell in love with muscle cars introduced by his father Joe who also shared in his love of cars. They both owned Mustangs and attended many car shows together. He went to the gym consistently and to Rocco it was more than just about being in shape, it was his favorite thing to do; which led him to also become a personal trainer. He was a lifelong baseball player and continued to play for the ACCC Buccaneers. He also played basketball throughout grade school. Rocco was a die-hard Eagles fan who spent Sundays watching games with his family.
His hobbies included skim boarding, golfing, detailing his mustang, working out, and spending quality time with his family, friends and dog Nero. Rocco had a contagious laugh and a personality you could never forget. He has touched so many lives and he will be missed beyond measure.
