Brian Edward Drocco ’08, a resident of Sunnyvale, was taken from us in a car accident Feb. 24. No words can describe this loss for his loving parents, Carol and Dan, and his beloved brother, Jeff. His smile and his laughter graced our lives. It was too short a time. Brian grew up in Cupertino, attended St Francis High School in Mt. View, and graduated from Santa Clara University in 2008 with a degree in electrical engineering. He was a member of the first, very successful Solar Decathlon team at SCU. Upon graduation, Brian and a few other engineers from that team began a startup company, Valence Energy. Valence was recently acquired by Serious Energy, where Brian was currently working.
Brian loved technology, loved music, and loved being a part of Silicon Valley.
Most of all, he had a joyful optimism for life that he shared with his family and countless friends. Brian, may your marvelous, baritone voice join the choirs of angels in heaven.
