A LEGENDARY car salesman who was "bigger than life" has died after a long illness.
Billy Fuccillo passed away at his home in Florida after "months of declining health."
"It is with great sadness that we advise you of the passing of former member and friend, Billy Fuccillo," the Syracuse Auto Dealers Association announced on Friday.
The legend owned several dealerships in Upstate New York with his son, Billy Fuccillo Jr. However, this January they sold five of their locations.
He was best known for his trademark advertisements on TV and radio, where he said his deals were "HUUUUUGE."
Fuccillo is survived by his son, and his wife Cindy. It is unclear if his son will continue to run the dealerships in his father's honor.
Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick said of Fuccillo: "He was bigger than life.
"When I was asked years ago to help fund the Syracuse Police Department memorial in downtown Syracuse, Billy was the first guy to help."
He added that the dealer was an avid golfer and "just a great man."
