Our Dad, Michael S. Locurcio, 62, was an unconventional guy. Modest about his accomplishments, he would find this embarrassing. Sorry Dad! He had a contagious smile, and rocked Ray Bans and an 80’s hairstyle for much of his adult life. He was so cool he could pull it off.
He was the eldest of five children to Frank and Angie Locurcio, and was raised in Camillus. He attended West Genesee High School and then graduated from Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University.
Dad was a true renaissance man, with numerous vocations and skills. He was the proprietor of L&S Electric, a licensed Master Electrician, but never did finish that switch in my bathroom. He was a proud card carrying member of I.A.T.S.E. Local 9 (Stagehands Union) and performed multiple duties for productions that came through CNY. Thanks Dad for the backstage passes to that world. He also held his CDL to haul major entertainment acts all over the country. Although passionate about his vocations, they never defined him; they were a means to his travel and adventure.
A gifted musician, he played multiple instruments solely by ear. He was a voracious reader, had an incredible wit and sense of humor, and loved to laugh, which was just as infectious as his smile. Our Dad loved life, and he lived it well. He was set to depart on a cruise on 1/16/17. Bon Voyage Dad.
Michael is survived by his two daughters, Tori (Shane) Amidon, and Alaina Locurcio; his parents Frank and Angie; siblings Donna (Dc Nick) Alvaro, Steven, Mark (Lois), and Michele (Eric) Moyer; one niece, and nephew, and his beloved granddaughters, Addison, Sophia, Fiona, and Claire.
Calling Hours will be held Friday, January 20 from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home, 5854 Belle Isle Road, Syracuse, NY 13209 with a service to follow at 7:00 PM at the funeral home. Casual dress is encouraged.
