Nivio A. Cracco (Nebs) passed away on March 6, 2023, at the age of 94. He was born March 25, 1928, in Torrington to John and Mary Cracco.  He was a US Navy veteran and worked for Rapid Dairy Transport as a milk hauler for 38 years.  Nivio loved family gatherings, picnics, making wine, speaking Italian, and frequenting his favorite restaurants with family.  He was grateful for and proud of his family, and they in turn felt the same.

He was grandfather to Andrew Cracco, Brian Slowikowski, Chelsea Mielke, Liza Cracco, Sam Slowikowski, Andreya Thibeault, Daria Slowikowski, and Brianna Cracco and had four great-grandchildren.  Also mourning him are Marilyn Howe, Whitney Lavigne and Caitlin Boissoneault, whom he considered family.
