Harrison community says goodbye to town clerk

A funeral was held today for Harrison Town Clerk Joe Acocella, who passed away from kidney failure on Monday.

An entire community of family and friends gathered to say their final goodbyes to the 30-year-old at St. Gregory's Church in Harrison this morning.

Acocella exceeded all expectations when he became the youngest person in state history to serve as town clerk, despite a lifetime of battling health problems.

Acocella was buried at St. Mary's Cemetery in Rye Brook.
