Proud husband the late Sec Laucirica with wife Terry who was awarded Senior of the Year 2014

The 5THE FM family were saddened to learn of the passing of one of our own, Sec Laucirica, husband of Terry Laucirica a valued presenter at 107.7. Sec was a proud father of David, Juana, Amaya and Catarina (dec).

Sec was also a very proud husband, especially when Terry was awarded the Wattle Range Council Senior of the Year 2014 for her extensive contribution to the community. As Terry said today, he was even more proud than if he had won it himself.

Sec was deeply loved by his wife and family and all who knew him and will be sadly missed.

The management and staff of 5THE FM extend heartfelt sympathies to Terry and family at this sad time.

Terry has invited relatives and friends to celebrate Sec’s Funeral Mass at the Catholic Church on Friday.
