RECENTS OBITS


Michael S. Locurcio
Calling Hours will be held Friday, January 20th from 4-7pm at Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home,
5854 Belle Isle Road, Syracuse, NY 13209
 with a service to follow at 7pm at the funeral home. 
Casual dress is encouraged. 

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. 
In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the Humane Society of CNY, 4915 West Taft Road, Liverpool, NY 13088.

Why choose Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski?

...Because Our Family is Your Family...
Family Owned vs. Corporate Owned

    When choosing a funeral home, you may want to research whether or not the business is owned by a local family or run by a large corporation.
There is a difference.
    During the past twenty years, publicly-owned corporations have been consolidating the funeral business similarly to what has occurred in other businesses. Recently, this trend has reversed because the corporate-owned funeral homes have simply not measured up to the service that families receive from family-owned funeral homes.
    For generations funeral services have been provided by local families who have deep roots in their community. When dealing with such an important event in your families life, turning to a funeral director whom you know and trust can make a world of difference.
      Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home is the best in the business. We will give you the personal attention, outstanding professionalism, and caring that you deserve.  We will be there for you after the funeral is over to provide you the extra support that only generations of service can cultivate. 



Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home has been family owned & operated locally since 1933.
