Obituary for Louis Robert Rochira

Louis R. Rochira, 89, of Warwick, died peacefully surrounded by his loving family on April 1. He was the beloved husband of the late Catherine (Skunza) Rochira for 55 years.

Born in Providence, he was the son of the late Guiseppe and Teresa (Regine) Rochira. He served proudly in the Army during the Korean War. He was a graduate of Mount Pleasant High School and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of RI, and a master’s degree from RI College. He began his career as an English teacher for Cranston Public Schools then transferred to Providence Public Schools where he was a school guidance counselor for over 25 years. He also worked for over 10 years as a newspaper display representative for the Providence Journal. He was an avid fan of the URI basketball program and could be seen at every home game for over 40 years. His final wish was fulfilled by following his wife Catherine with his participation in the Anatomical Gift Program of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

He is survived by his cherished daughters Regina Rochira Wilkinson and Jennifer A. Rochira (James) and his cherished grandchildren Alysia (Stephen), Michael (Sarah), and Robert Wilkinson. He was predeceased by his brothers Frank, John, Benjamin, Joseph, and Victor and his sisters Mary and Lucy.
