Christopher Flynn Tucci, 27, of West Nyack, NY passed away unexpectedly on October 22, 2023. from cause still undetermined, but currently attributed to an undiagnosed enlarged heart.
He was born on February 12, 1996 in Brooklyn, NY to Eileen and James Tucci. The youngest of their four children, he was their “cherry on the sundae of life”; that absolute unexpected little treat on top of it all. His short time with us was filled with living life to the fullest and accomplishing more than most people do in a full lifetime. He did it all: whether that was traveling with his brothers, being the only one in the family to stand up to his big sister, skiing, playing guitar and piano, taking singing lessons, studying jiu jitsu, rock climbing, acting, surfing, or running a marathon. He spent time volunteering with special needs children teaching them how to ski with the Adaptive Sports Foundation in Windham, NY and Breckenridge, CO. Never one to brag, he did all of this humbly and quietly. He also accomplished a lot academically. After graduating from Pearl River High School in 2014, he went on to graduate from Fordham University in 2018 with a degree in physics and engineering. Post-college he taught himself data science and was most recently working as a data analyst for Meta. He was the epitome of youth and health, which makes this all the more tragic. He is survived by his loving parents, Eileen and James, his 3 big siblings: Kate (Pete), Michael, and James (Gemma), his adoring nieces and nephews (Natalie, Thomas, Caroline, and James), and a core group of friends that were more like family. The only consolation we have is that we know he was met at the gates of Heaven by his best friend, Tommy Scognamiglio, who predeceased him, and that he spent the last night of his life surrounded by his friends and cousins watching football, hanging at Topgolf, and enjoying his youth.
The family will be receiving family and friends on Thursday, October 26 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8PM at the Church of the Presentation, 271 West Saddle River Road, Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458. Funeral mass the next day at Presentation with a burial at St. Anthony’s Cemetery in Nanuet, NY. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to tommyscogsfoundation.com and adaptivesportsfoundation.org.
