John Gambogi, age 88, of Glassboro, NJ, passed away on April 13, 2023 after a lengthy illness. He was the beloved husband and soulmate of the late Beth Ann Gambogi (nee Henrie).
Born in Mantua NJ, John was the youngest son of the late Theodore and Lillian (nee Hilderbrand) Gambogi. He is survived by his brother William Gambogi (Patricia) and was the brother of the late Theresa Herman (John), the late Theodore Gambogi Jr (Helen) and the late Lillian Hardy (Dennis). He was Uncle John to many nieces and nephews and was blessed by two special and loving cousins, David and Dawn Pinterich, who cared for both John and Beth Ann in the later journey of their lives.
John was a graduate of Pitman High School and Glassboro State College (now Rowan University). He lived in Pitman, NJ for most of his life, before moving to Glassboro, NJ. John took pride and touched many lives through his work as a long-time teacher at Clearview High School. He also loved his "side job" with his work at Tall Pines Golf Club as a bartender for many years.
John's favorite times were spent with his beloved wife, Beth Ann, at their Long Beach Island shore house. He enjoyed many hobbies. He loved creating and sharing his beautiful paintings (which was his passion). He blended his creativity and math skills to create beautiful stained-glass designs. John loved sporty cars (MG, Mustang, Firebird and Jags). His long-time favorite thing to do was to cruise around town and the Jersey shore in his vintage rag top VW Beetle with his lady by his side. He loved sports and was a huge fan of his beloved Detroit Tigers and the Detroit Lions.
The family is grateful for the many caregivers at Angelic Hospice and the Pitman Manor (United Methodist Communities at Pitman).
