Michael Anthony Crocco III born on March 19, 1995 died too soon on September 2, 2016 of a heroin overdose. Michael fought substance abuse for 5 years of his short life. He experienced periods of success, during which he was fully himself; a kind, smart, compassionate, sensitive and generous young man. In life, one little decision can make a huge impact not just on you but also those that love and care for you. Michael had everything a young man could want. But once drugs took control in his life they changed him, destroying so much of the hope and promise in his future. Ultimately he lost his battle, and is now another heartbreaking reminder of the heroin epidemic in this country. He is pre-deceased by his father Michael Crocco Jr. and survived by his mother Barbara Talerico, his brother Lenny Talerico (his wife Tina, and beautiful nieces Bella and Scarlett) as well as his sisters Colleen Crocco and Jill Crocco. Michael had many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who he thought of as family. He will be remembered Saturday September 10, 2016 at Kraeer Funeral Home 200 N Federal Hwy Pompano Beach FL with visitation from 1-4pm and the service from 4-5pm.
