Matthew S. Gargiso, beloved grandson, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend, passed away on February 4, 2024, at the age of 34, after a brief battle with cancer. He was born on February 11, 1989, in Brooklyn, NY, and moved to Staten Island at the age of 5. He only recently moved to Bloomfield, NJ, 15 months ago. Matt brought immense joy and love to the lives of those around him.
Matt had a heart of gold. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, especially his family, friends, and neighbors. His cheerful and positive personality made him a beloved figure in his neighborhood, earning him the title of "Mayor." Matt's warm and friendly nature made him a joy to be around, and he had a remarkable ability to bring people together.
One of the most significant achievements in Matt's life was when he worked hard to join the Steamfitters Union local 638 in Long Island City, NY. He pursued a career in HVAC and was dedicated to his work. Unfortunately, his journey was interrupted when he was diagnosed with cancer. Despite the challenges he faced, Matt remained resilient and determined. He even went back to school at night, showcasing his unwavering commitment to personal growth and development.
Outside of work, Matt had a passion for decorating for Christmas with his family. He had a special talent for creating beautiful light displays that brought joy to all who saw them. In his younger years, he enjoyed playing baseball, and as he grew older, he found great pleasure in watching movies and playing games with his friends.
Matthew's impact on the lives of those who knew him cannot be overstated. He touched the hearts of many with his kindness, generosity, and infectious positivity. He was a source of strength and support for his loved ones, always there to lend an ear or offer a helping hand. Matt's memory will forever live in the hearts of his mother Sharon, brother Anthony, niece Taylor, maternal grandmother Ruth Ricco, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.
A visitation will be held on Saturday, February 10th, from 2-5 pm at Scott & Kedz Home for Funerals, where friends and family can pay their respects. A service will conclude the evening, providing an opportunity to honor and celebrate Matthew's life.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that you plant a tree in Matthew's memory. This symbolic gesture will serve as a lasting tribute to his life and the impact he had on the world around him.
