Proud Veteran, U.S. Marine Corp
WATERBURY – Christopher Nocera age 46 of Waterbury, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by the love of his parents and family after a valiant battle with cancer.
Christopher was born on February 19, 1974 in Waterbury, the son of Janet and Francis Jalbert. He graduated from Kaynor Technical High School, served in The United States Marine Corps, and graduated from The Culinary Institue of America. Christopher channeled his creative energy further and became a hair stylist and owned his own salon.
Christopher had a passion for life and left an impact on everyone he met; how could he not, his smile was infectious. He was the first person to help someone in need and would quickly respond with, “I know someone”. He was an avid golf player, enjoyed the game of tennis, and he loved to root for the New York Yankees and the Miami Dolphins. He dabbled in photography, worked for the Big Green Pizza truck, and loved going to the casino; you could find him at the Blackjack table. He was a Fourth Degree Knight for the Knights of Columbus, Sheriden Council..
Left to honor Christopher’s legacy and memories besides his parents are, his grandmother, Irene Albert, his siblings; Joseph R. Nocera IV, Dawn Cronin and her husband Frank, Linda Eiler and her husband Karl, and Dan Jalbert. He also leaves behind his daughters, Mia and Ella Nocera, his aunts and uncles, his nieces and nephews, and close friends.
