Girolamo "Gerry" "Mommo" Guarraggi, 71, of Hamilton, passed into God's loving arms on June 12, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Ribera, Sicily, he emigrated to Canada in 1966, and followed the love of his life, Maria Rosa, to the United States in 1971. He was employed by General Motors, the Board of Education in Elizabeth, NJ, and Laborers Local 394. He was a member of the Capital Assembly of God in Hamilton, and a devout member of the Ribera Social Club in Elizabeth, NJ. Gerry was an avid gardener and enjoyed walking, biking, music, dancing, and making homemade wine. Every Sunday he loved to watch Formula 1 racing, soccer, and his New York Giants. Nonno devotedly attended many of his grandchildren's sporting events and activities. Most of all he cherished spending time with his loving wife, his 5 children and their spouses, and his beloved 11 grandchildren. They were truly his life and soul, as well as many of his dear and loyal friends. Son of the late Pasquale and Mattia (DiGiovanna) Guarraggi, and brother of the late Gerlando Guarraggi, he is survived by his loving wife of almost 50 years in September, Maria Rosa (Mandese) Guarraggi of Hamilton, his children Pasquale and his wife Donna of Pennington, Alfonso and his wife Giovanna of Hamilton, Mattia and her husband Mike Garofalo of Hamilton, Gerlando and his wife Daniela of Columbus, and Nick and his wife Megan of Eastampton, his grandchildren Marcella, Alessandra, Giulianna, Adriana, Michael, Mia, Maria, Carmela, Girolamo, Gunnar, and Alba, his brothers Biagio and his wife Lina Guarraggi of Toronto, Canada, and Charlie and his wife Rosalie Guarraggi of Delaware, his sister-in-law Maria Guarraggi of Montreal, Canada, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
