Key Partner Spotlight: Nuccio Heating and Air Conditioning

In my conversation with Joe Nuccio, he shared some of his incredible family history with me, one that begins on his mother’s side in the Canary Islands to Cuba and then on to Key West. His Great-Uncle Eduardo Gato was an affluent businessman in Key West, and his home still exists as the Bed & Breakfast known as Gato House. Our families share Italian heritage, though mine is on my husband’s side of the family. His Great-Grandfather became a U.S. citizen in 1902. I really enjoyed hearing his family stories and I hope you get a chance to hear more about them too.

Back in 1985, the Nuccio family dreamed of building a lake house in the country. Joe and his wife, known to all as Rhody had been living in Carrollwood where they raised sons Joe and Chris. They found a property in Keystone; which Joe describes as “pristine, and with no trouble making turns onto Gunn Hwy.” Joe was very busy with building a business and he tells me that Rhody was not quite ready to make the move out to the country, so they did not actually build and move onto their property until 1998.

After clearing the property on Lake Juanita and building their dream home, Joe says “now I can’t get my wife out of here. We love sitting and watching the sunset in the evenings. Keystone is such a good and wholesome place to live. We love the peace and quiet out here… the open area of Keystone.”

When Joe was about 20 years old, he began working for another HVAC business and moved on when his employer went out of business. In 1978, Joe started his own business Nuccio Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc and just a few years later his Brother-In-Law Bill Edmonson joined the business as his partner focusing on the commercial businesses in Tampa Bay. Joe continued to work the residential side of their business. As Joe and Rhody’s sons became adults, they also went to work in the business, truly a family affair. Joe has been in the industry for 50 years.
