Lloyd "Jocko" Fussinger Jr., a beloved son, brother, uncle, veteran, and cherished friend, embarked on his final adventure on March 7, 2024. Born on March 13, 1945, Jocko lived a life rich in experiences, leaving a mark on the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him.

Jocko proudly served his country as an Army Vietnam veteran from 1966 to 1967. His dedication and sacrifice showcased his courage and commitment to a cause greater than himself.
For 41 years, Jocko dedicated his professional life to the C&O/CSX Railroad, where he served in various roles, including yard master, car retarder operator, Amtrac conductor, yard and road conductor, brakeman, safety committee and mentor for new hires. He also worked for G. Dixon & Assoc., Bawac Inc., and was a proud member and Governor of Moose Lodge 1469, American Legion Post 0200, VFW Post 6095.

Survived by his son, Justin Fussinger, and beloved sisters, Carol (Gerald) Dixon and Judy (Jack) Logan, Jocko leaves behind a legacy of love and family. In addition to his immediate family, he is also survived by his niece, Bev (Kevin) Turner, and nephews Rob (Debbie) Dixon, Gary Dixon, Greg (Vickie) Dixon, and Geoff (Peggy) Dixon, along with several great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, and friends.

In his own words, Jocko left us with a poignant message: "If you are reading this, I am on my final adventure. Thanks to all of you still here for an interesting life. I will thank the people who have gone before me when I get to where I am going. Remember life is short, so don't slight yourself on the things you want to do; tomorrow may never come. God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy!!! Thanks to all, Jocko."

Jocko's body has been donated to UC Medical Center, and in accordance with his wishes, no services will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to your favorite charity in Jocko's memory.

Rest in peace, Jocko.
