March 13, 1960 ~ July 29, 2019
Aaron Rocco Podeszwa Sr., Age 59, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 29, 2019, at Gwinnett Medical in Lawrenceville, Georgia. He was born March 13, 1960, in Newark, New Jersey to Peter and Bridgette Podeszwa. Aaron worked as a Chef for most of his life. His delicious meals won him many awards and he was honored to feed many celebrities. Tens of thousands of people had the opportunity to enjoy his food through the restaurants he worked at and the restaurants he owned. His passion for food made him friends far and wide. His uncanny ability to strike up a conversation with anyone will leave his memory on the world. The only thing he loved more than food and conversation was his wife and family. He is survived by his wife, Denise; three sons, Aaron Rocco Jr., Nikola, and Giancarlo; two daughter-in-laws, Courtney and Anette; two grandchildren, Aaron Rocco III and Tia Bella.
