Funeral Services Set for NJ Lawmaker

Alex DeCroce
Governor's Office, Tim Larsen

Funeral services will be held Friday for Alex DeCroce, the New Jersey Republican Assembly leader who died at the Statehouse this week after a late-night session.

The 10 a.m. service at St. Peter the Apostle Church in Parsippany will be followed by burial in Gate of Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover.

Visiting hours will be 3 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Par-Troy Funeral Home in Parsippany. DeCroce’s family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the New Jersey Crime Victims Law Center.

A lawmaker since 1989, DeCroce was also a Realtor who owned his own company.

The 75-year-old collapsed late Monday night after the Assembly adjourned. He was pronounced dead by a colleague who is also a physician.

State police attributed the death to a heart-related issue.
