JOHN MAMROSH

Private funeral services have been held for John Mamrosh, 79, of Jersey City. He passed away on Dec. 17 at Jersey City Medical Center. John is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sandra (Sandy) Mamrosh (née Tondi); his children, John Mamrosh and wife Lorraine, Thomas Mamrosh and husband Melton Goodwin, and Jennie Mamrosh; his grandchildren, Rebecca, Rachel, Braiden, Kendra, Gabriel, Ashanti, and Summer; puppy Nessa; and in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents, Mytro and Jennie Mamrosh, sister Nancy Peake, brother-in-law Harry Peake, and puppy Jax. John was born January 21, 1941 in Jersey City. He was drafted into the Army in 1963 and served two years. He married the love of his life, Sandy, on May 16, 1965. He worked at AT&T for 33 years. His early retirement was spent making many memories with his wife and children. He played an integral role in the lives of his grandchildren, spending many of his days doing everything to make them happy. He was quick to lend a helping hand and share a laugh with fellow Jersey City residents and loved ones alike. He loved to drive, often referring to himself as Johnny the Driver. Later, in an effort to keep up with the times, he changed his nickname to Johnny Uber. You might have seen him outside tediously cleaning and polishing his Toyota, at the corner store playing his numbers, or having a Coors Light at one of his favorite restaurants. He had great pride in his city and loved to spend time driving around historic downtown Jersey City where he grew up. His laugh and smile were contagious, and he lit up every room he entered. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
