David “Dave” Jose Tuccio, 75, of Irvine, California, beloved father, husband, grandfather, brother, passed away peacefully on June 14, 2014. He was born on September 3, 1938 in Lima, Peru to David and Abigail Tuccio.

Immediately after moving, he was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served in the Vietnam War and earned a Purple Heart. Dave became a U.S. Citizen in 1996.

Dave was passionate about his family, friends and business. He had a distinguished and enjoyable career leading contract manufacturing company, Daveco International.
