Known to family and friends as Hilda, a former nurse in Cuba, Roque-DiegeuzÂ passed away on Tuesday after weeks of care at the Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen for a number of health issues.
Roque is currently under indictment from the state Attorney General’s Office for allegedly receiving $250,000 in bribes and other kickbacks, but was shown the utmost respect from his constituents at a largely uneventful board of commissioners meeting yesterday where the budget was introduced.
The Holy Family Church is located at 530 35th Street and the Roque family has decided to forego a funeral service.
