Obituaries » Gerald “Jerry” R. Falduto
Gerald “Jerry” R. Falduto passed away on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at his home in Boonton Township. He was 84 years old.
Born to Carmen and Carmella Falduto, Jerry was born and raised in Montville. He then moved to Boonton where he lived for the remainder of his life.
As a young man, Jerry proudly served in the United States Air Force, an experience which instilled core ideals and a sense of patriotism that carried throughout his life and gained him many valuable friendships.
The youngest sibling in a family of successful entrepreneurs, he owned Jerry’s Deli in Lake Parsippany with his brother John “Jim” Falduto. That is where he met the love of his life, Alyce A. Falduto (“nee Durkin”), who predeceased him in February of 2013. Following the delicatessen, he opened Jeral’s Gift Shop in Parsippany, a family business that, for 40 years before his retirement, was a place where everybody knew your name and lifelong bonds to a community that was so close to his heart were formed.
Survivors include his daughter Deborah Falduto Xenakis and her husband Thomas of Ocean City, MD, daughter Mary Carmella Falduto of Delray Beach, FL, cherished granddaughter Aileen Kozlowski and her husband Christopher of Tequesta, FL, adoring and devoted sister Mary Rea of Boonton Twp., sisters-in-law Arlene Falduto of Boonton and Frances Durkin of Lakewood, NJ, many nieces and nephews, and far too many loyal, kind and true friends and neighbors to mention.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Jerry’s Memorial Mass at 10:00 am on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at Saint Catherine of Siena R.C. Church, 10 North Pocono Road., Mountain Lakes.
