11/1/1982 – 8/29/2022
For the unfortunate people that never got to meet Gary I sincerely apologize for he was truly one of a kind. Gary was a selfless man would give you the shirt off his back with no hesitation. He was so loving, when he walked into a room even if he didn’t know you, you were greeted with a hug and kiss and by the time he left you would get an I love you. He constantly communicated with his family with daily texts to make sure everyone was ok. He was hands on: as a contractor he could build any home from the ground up and for his family he was Mr. Fix. He was a prankster, his favorite prank/joke was to come up with some over the top story before telling you he was just playing. If he wasn’t being productive, he’d most likely have a fishing rod in his hand heading to Hawk Island or volunteering with his kids’ football and softball teams. He was the true meaning of a family man, just in the way he spoke with such happiness and glow on his face about all four of his kids and grand baby. He met his soulmate, love of his life and the woman that held the master key to his heart Amanda at a young age. At that time she approached him and thats when their life of love began. He is survived by his children: Rachael (Pablo), Emily, Dean, and Dom; siblings: Heather (Ray),Dave (Nancy), Amy, George (Stacy), Milissa, Jeremy, and Celina; granddaughter Laylani; mother Betty (George), father-in-law Robert Yannarella; brother in law Anthony; many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his father Harry Cobleigh. Come celebrate 39 years on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 from 6pm-8pm at Sweeney Funeral Home, 337 Bridgeboro Street, Riverside NJ 08075, where there will be an 8pm service.
