LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The Honorable Judge Ronald Cicoria will receive the highest honor of our county prior to being laid to rest, as he will lie in state at the County Courthouse.
According to Michael Dougherty, from Dougherty Funeral Home, the only two other citizens that have received this honor were Judge Robert Houston and Judge Gene Bergen.
The community may call on former Judge, District Attorney, and outstanding citizen Judge Cicoria at the Livingston County Courthouse on Sunday, Jan 11, from 2-5 p.m.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Monday, Jan 12, at 10 a.m. at the Wadsworth Auditorium at SUNY Geneseo, where eulogies will be given by family members, and tentatively by current New York State Supreme Court Justice and former Livingston County District Attorney Thomas Moran, alongside attorney Kevin Van Allen.
“He was a pillar to the legal community and led by example,” said Van Allen. “It will be an emotional day, but we will be strong and come together to honor a great man and a brilliant human being.”
Burial will be held privately at the convenience of the family.
