Wyzga, Gabriel Francis "Gabe" - 90, Lincroft  
Gabriel "Gabe" Francis Wyzga AGE: 90 • Lincroft Gabriel Francis Wyzga ("Gabe"), 90, of Lincroft, passed away Monday, May 25, 2015. He was born on Nov. 1, 1924 of first generation Polish immigrant parents in Trenton. His mother, Helen, named him after the Archangel Gabriel, the sword-bearer who stands at the left hand of God. Gabe's Depression Years upbringing was not an easy one; however, his experiences influenced the raising of his family. "We are rich, although we may not have a lot of money" is a theme that would echo over and over. Gabe served as a United States Navy radioman in World War II, mastering International Morse Code. He was known to recite the alphabet in "dits" and "dots." After his U.S. Navy service, Gabe enrolled as a student at Valparaiso Technical Institute in Indiana. He carried on a long-distance correspondence romance with the woman he met at a wedding and who would eventually become his own bride: Hedwig Genevieve Golebiewski ("Hedy"). After Gabe graduated, he worked as a research assistant for Bell Telephone Laboratories in Murray Hill, and was later transferred to Bell Labs in Holmdel. He and Hedy moved to Lincroft to continue raising the family that would number seven children. For decades, Gabe and Hedy took their family tent camping all over New England. As the family hiked the woods and mountains, Hedy would point out flowers along the trails and Gabe, a self-taught photographer, would shoot Kodak slides. Gabe never let the family forget that we are Polish. Holidays were steeped in Polish ideals and traditions that meant family to Gabe. When Hedy succumbed to cancer in 1999, Gabe soldiered on as his faith, family, friends and parish became a staff that he leaned on to the very end of his days. His smile would light up a room. Gabe was a good soul, a good man, and an unusually kind husband, father and friend. He was intimately involved with St. Leo the Great R.C. Church and parish for over 50 years in the Church Choir, as a Lector and Eucharistic Minister, and as an active member of the St. Joseph Society. Gabe loved life! His family rejoices that in death he is reunited with Hedy and with their Lord once again. Visitation will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 29 at the Holmdel Funeral Home, 26 South Holmdel Road, Holmdel. A Funeral Mass will be offered at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 30 at St. Leo the Great R.C. Church, 50 Hurleys Lane, Lincroft. Interment will then follow at the Holmdel Cemetery.

Obituaries from Two Days Ago

Warshauer, Martin  
Martin Warshauer AGE: 86 • Martin Warshauer lived. Like, REALLY lived. And he lived well. Really well. He also died, as people unfortunately tend to do, on May 20, 2015, at the age of 86, the details of which don't really merit further explanation. Both, because they seem somewhat beside the point given the profundity of the blessings that marked his life, and also because newspapers charge by the word for these kinds of things, and his beloved (if supernaturally frugal) wife Ollie would no doubt prefer we save the money. Born in Depression-era Brooklyn on January 2, 1929, Marty- as he was affectionately known to his friends and family- took little more than a high school education and a keen eye for opportunity and built a life, family and comfortable fortune very much in the vein of one of those "only in America"-type anecdotes politicians tell in stump speeches. He was an entrepreneur, back in the days when that was more than just code for "unemployed iPhone app idea-haver." And though he left behind an impressive resume filled with businesses built and inventions brought to market (Warshauer Electric Supply Co., Contempra Cookware and the Electric Char-B-Q among them), perhaps the most notable thing about that resume was that he, quite literally, left it behind, retiring at age 50 to spend the next four decades of his life with his wife and family, doing… well, whatever he wanted. In an era when so many people live to work, Marty worked. And then he just lived. He became a world traveler. An avid golfer. An early adopter of e-mail. (Though he never quite mastered that CAPS LOCK thing.) He read several newspapers every day (and bribed his grandchildren to do the same.) He loved to cook (it would seem almost exclusively with dill.) And he was a dreamer- for his grandchildren especially. A fact which might explain his fondness for and unparalleled proficiency in the forgotten art of napping- a ritual he did daily. Preferably, from the comfort of any number of his cherished, sun-drenched patios. Though he never ran for public office, he was certainly well adept at "holding court," serving as the de facto mayor of the Hollywood Golf Club in Deal, N.J., the Innisbrook Country Club in Tarpon Springs, FL, and pretty much any cocktail party, hotel lobby or airport lounge in which you might find him. If you met him in passing, you were his friend, whether you wanted to be or not. But, let's face it, by the end of any conversation with him, you wanted to be, as he'd no doubt have already waved over a half-dozen other passersby to regale them with a list of your accomplishments in the fawning way only a grandfather can shamelessly pull off. We're talking about a man with Clooney-level charm here, paired with General Patton-caliber tenacity. If he had wanted to take over the world, he surely could have. But he had a life to lead. He had a family to enjoy. And, yeah, he also had those naps to take. With his passing, he rejoins Ollie, his wife of 51 years who died in 2002. She was the sure-footed pragmatist, to his visionary optimist, balancing out his gregarious flights of fancy with her measured sense of discipline. They were the yin to each others yang. (Or whatever the Jewish version of that is.) They are survived by an ever-growing family including his brother Stuart and his wife Lauretta; their sons Lewis, Bruce and James and their wives Janet, Nora and Mary; their eight grandchildren Adam, Emily, Matthew, Laura, Stacey, Michael, Samuel, Jeffrey and is wife Bridget; and two great-grandchildren, Marshall and Davis. And though Marty and Ollie's loss is deeply felt, it only serves to highlight the power of their legacy- a loving family indelibly bonded in their example of hard-fought work and lives well lived. Though their seats at the table may now be empty, the Warshauers and their extended family and friends will continue to gather to celebrate and reflect on Marty's life. And while a death may be a terrible excuse for a family get-together, it is a family get-together nonetheless. An irony Marty would no doubt see, relish and make the most of. After all, he always was a "glass half-full" kind of guy. Even though he'd be the first to point out the glass was spotty, and ask to have it replaced with a newer, cleaner, completely refilled glass before insisting it be taken off the bill entirely. Your memorial contributions are welcome at the Hospice of Palm Beach County, Florida: http://hpbc.com

Lyman served in the 3rd Army under the command of General George Patton. He was drafted after the Pearl Harbor attack.

He sailed home and arrived in Boston, Massachusetts on Thanksgiving Day of 1945. He was hired, by the New York City Transit Authority, as a bus driver in 1947. He was promoted to supervisor and then to senior supervisor. His last assignment before retiring was making schedules for the buses in Staten Island.
