Republic First Bancorp, the parent company of Republic Bank, is deeply saddened by the passing of longtime Republic Bank Director, Theodore J. Flocco, Jr.

A native of South Philadelphia who raised his family in Southern New Jersey, Mr. Flocco became a lifelong certified public accountant after graduating from St. Joseph’s University. He spent more than 35 years with Ernst & Young as a Senior Audit Partner, advising many of the largest SEC regulated clients with a focus on banks, including Commerce Bank. After his retirement, he worked as a consultant for corporate executives and dedicated much of his time to philanthropy. Since 2008, Mr. Flocco served as a Director of Republic First Bancorp, Inc., seeing the Bank through much of its growth in Metro Philadelphia and expansion into Metro New York.

“Ted was a unique person and a true friend – loyal, intelligent and devoted to his community,” said Vernon W. Hill, II, CEO, and Chairman of Republic Bank. “I’m grateful for his 14 years of service and his many contributions to the Bank and our Board. We trusted him, relied on him and confided in him. He will be dearly missed.”

Mr. Flocco is survived by two sons, Ted and Eric, one daughter, Tara, and 10 grandchildren.
