- About Us
Soon after their marriage, Joe and his wife Phyllis opened the Bocco Funeral Home in its original location in South Camden, NJ in 1951. For nearly 25 years, they provided funeral services to the local community while raising three children. In 1978, they moved the funeral home to its current location on Kings Highway in Cherry Hill, NJ. When Joe passed away in 1986, his son Joseph, Jr. along with Phyllis, continued the tradition of providing family-centered care throughout the local community.
