Anthony (Tracy) Nocera was born on May 15th, 1929 to Mary and Carmen Nocera, the 5th of five children in Brooklyn, NY where he lived his whole life. He left us on January 31st to join Doris, who he was fortunate to spend twenty-nine wonderful years with, and had three amazing sons, Michael, Anthony, and Gerard.
He was Dad, Papa, Great Papa, Big Papi, Uncle Tracy, Brother, Cousin, and Friend, and the last surviving elder of an amazing generation born in a depression era, but all managed to have the most optimistic views of life. He was predeceased by Doris, and much later, Fran, his companion of twenty-five years.
Anthony’s legacy includes his children, Michael, Tina, Anthony, Kenny, and Gerard. His grandchildren, Michael, Jessica, Noelle, Mitch, Gregory, Melinda, and Gerard Philip, and his great-grandchildren Matthew Anthony, and Lily June.
Services will be held at McLaughlin & Sons Inc. 9620 3rd Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11209 on Friday, February 5th 4pm to 8pm.

Toni and I consider ourselves blessed to have known Tracy. Truly a gentleman, possessed of a wicked sense of humor, and proud of his children and grandchildren. To Anthony and Ken we give our thanks for sharing Tracy with us.

I’m so sorry to hear about Uncle Tracy’s passing. I have so many happy memories flooding through my brain right now…from picnics in Valley Stream when I was young, to vacations in the Poconos…to Roseland dude ranch …just to name a few. And sooo much laughter; I will especially always remember Uncle Tracy’s infectious laugh. Here’s hoping that his reunion with Aunt Doris and my Mom and Dad plus everyone else who has passed brings joy to his soul as they all watch over us now. Rest in Peace, beloved Uncle Tracy. Love, Cynthia and Al

I have come to know Tracy since his grandson Michael was in Pre K with my sons some 30 years ago. I cherished all the family celebrations I was invited to from the first days of meeting Tracy ( probably after a Nutley play) to fairly recently - and ALWAYS felt that Tracy lived life to the fullest while ENJOYING every second of it. He inspires me to find the ZEST in my life and enjoy it!
God Bless,
Denise Bellog

My life memories are full of the Miele’s and Nocera’s get togethers. From Aunt Doris’s baccala salad to Uncle Tracy calling my mother “Scadole”. His personality would fill up a room. He was the only person my father truly had a good time with. Their friendship was one that only people who have experienced it would understand. He was a wonderful husband, father, uncle and friend. May he Rest In Peace with Aunt Doris, my parents and all who went before him. I can see them now, playing cards and laughing. 🙏🏻❤️
