Marty Felezzola Obituary

Marty D. Felezzola, 69, of Berkeley Heights, passed away peacefully at his home on January 19, 2024. 

Marty grew up in the Vailsburg section of Newark, attending Sacred Heart Grammar School and Vailsburg High School, graduating in 1972. He had many cherished memories of his time in Vailsburg, growing up with loving parents, four brothers and many friends.

Marty attended Fairfield University and graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison. While at Fairleigh Dickinson, Marty was honored for creative writing.

Marty worked in Human Resources for Garden State Brickface for many years.  He later became the owner/operator of Travel Time Limo where he developed a business consisting of many loyal customers, many who became friends. 

Marty loved his family. He was so very proud of his sons, Marc and Daniel, cheered them on in all their many activities and was proud of all their accomplishments.  His wife Donna was the love of his life and he told everyone that. His three grandchildren were the light of his life and he enjoyed indulging their every wish.

Marty had many passions.  He loved movies and he collected them, first on VHS and then on DVD. He loved following sports, and was a passionate fan of the Rangers, Jets and Mets.  He passed this enthusiasm onto his sons, Marc and Daniel. Marty loved music, all types, and enjoyed attending concerts.  He had a soft spot for animals and his dog Cooper had a special place in his heart.  One of his favorite games was Cosmic Wimpout,  He taught the game to many people and playing the game with him always resulted in a fun night filled with laughter.

Marty was curious about everything; he was bright and quick thinking.  He was a fun person, always ready with a joke or story to share. Marty had the uncanny ability to make people laugh. He would make conversation with you and his jokes were so good you were sure to smile and chuckle. He knew when and how to cheer people up and most of all, he wore his heart on his sleeve and loved those closest to him dearly and unconditionally.  

Marty made people feel special. He touched many peoples' lives for the better and made a positive impact on the lives of those around him. He will be missed.

Beloved husband of 44 years to Donna (Santucci) Felezzola.  Devoted father of Marc Felezzola, his wife Kathy, Daniel Felezzola and his wife Melissa.  Loving son of Dolores Felezzola.  Cherished grandfather of John, Olivia and Luke.  Dear brother of Felix “Flip” Felezzola, his wife Laura, Michel Felezzola and his wife Kathy.  Also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
