Gerald C. Marcincavage, 76 of Wall, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune. Gerald was born and raised in Ranshaw, PA. He was a graduate of Mansfield University of Pennsylvania with his bachelor’s degree. He began his teaching career in Ithaca, NY before moving to Carteret where he taught social studies for almost 30 years at Carteret High School. After his retirement from teaching, Gerald worked as a supervisor for Area-Wide Protection, he was a claims processor for Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield and a quality control officer for the Monmouth County Landfill. Gerald was a diehard Philadelphia Eagles and NASCAR fan. He thoroughly loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was known as the “Warrior” because he would travel anywhere to watch his grandchildren participate in their extra-curricular activities. It didn’t matter if it was a 3-hour ride or a 10-hour ride, he was there.
Gerald is survived by his devoted wife of 51 years, Barbara (nee Bergal) Marcincavage, of Wall, his two loving sons and daughters-in-law, David and Rebecca Marcincavage of East Bend, NC and Marcus and Jill Marcincavage of Pittsburgh, PA. Gerald was the cherished grandfather of Lauren, Emily, Roddy and Kinsey-Ann. He is also survived by a beloved sister, Justine Reinoehl and her husband Gary of MD.
