Moment Of Silence Held For DeCroce As Assembly Members Sworn In

PHOTO: A moment of silence was held this afternoon just before Assembly members were sworn into office. DeCrose complaiend of pain in his arm before he collapsed following a long session last night. 

A bouquet of flowers sat on the 75 year old’s Statehouse Chamber desk today, as Governor Christie delivered an eulogy for the Republican he called a close friend and mentor who suddenly died.

A fellow Assemblyman, Herb Conaway, a Doctor, rushed to DeCroce’s aid moments after he collapsed, but resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful. Conaway pronounced him dead.

The State of the State Address was postponed till next week.
