John F. Gormley, AKA Mr. "G", 70, husband, father, and dear friend to all, peacefully passed away with family by his side on Sunday, July 23rd, 2017, in Red Bank, NJ.

John was born and raised in Staten Island to Michael and Helen (Scott) Gormley, the oldest of three children. He served in the United States Navy as a Machinist from 1966 to 1970 on the USS CROMWELL pursuing his passion and love for our country as he traveled the world.  John returned home and attended Saint Peter’s College in Jersey City, NJ, where he met his beloved wife Helen O'Connell.   Soon after receiving his Bachelors Degree of Science, John pursued an automotive career with NJ Bell and as a Motor Vehicle Training Instructor with Bayonne, NJ, US Army Garrison. John was known as the man who could fix anything, a "NY Giants" super fan, a respected coach, and an educator. A true family man at heart, John loved raising his family at the Jersey Shore.

John is survived by his wife of 46 years, daughter Pamela Ann, and son John along with so many friends and family whose lives he deeply touched.  He will always be loved and greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to your charity of choice and remember dad’s words:
“Always help the people around you, remain humble and kind, and of course, but not last,
tune up your car and check the tire pressure!” as this is what he would have wanted.

A celebration of his life will be held on August 5th for all family and friends at 214 Herbert Street, Union Beach NJ 07735, from 3pm on.
