He served his country during World War II in the Army and was honorably discharged in 1944. He moved to Brunswick following his marriage in 1962 to his beloved wife, Anna C. (Pontore) Gicobbi.

In his earlier years he enjoyed downhill skiing, fishing and hunting. In more recent times he enjoyed wine-making, watching golf and following his favorite baseball team, the New York Yankees.

He was a communicant of the former Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Watervliet and presently, Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.

He was the much loved husband for 57 years of Anna C. Gicobbi; loving father of Philip A. (wife Kathy) Gicobbi of Eagle Mills, Dina M. Klein of Watervliet and Joseph P. (wife Kelly) Gicobbi of Troy; dear brother of the late Peter Gicobbi of Troy and late Catherine Pepe of Troy; cherished grandfather of Brianna (husband Sam), Katlyn, Joelle, Peyton, Brett and Larry; proud great-grandfather of Landon Joseph.
