Gerard R. "Jerry" Nicolette
Beloved Father, Grandfather and Uncle, 82
Gerard R. “Jerry” Nicolette, age 82, of Cambridge Crossing in Clifton, NJ, died on May 15, 2020.
Born and raised in Newark, Jerry married Geraldine “Geri” Ombalsky of Belleville, with whom he raised two children in Bloomfield. There, he was an active member of the community for nearly five decades.
Having graduated from Barringer High School, he served in the US Army. Afterwards, over the course of his career, he worked as a health inspector for the City of Newark, as a realtor for Marzulli Real Estate, as a manager of Cedar Ridge senior living center, and as a salesman for Chicago Title. He was co-founder of Verona-based Prestige Title Agency, still a going concern after 26 years.
Jerry leaves many friends and family: his daughter Janine and her husband Michael Fantin, and their children Emily and Isabel Nicolette-Fantin; his son Gerard and Gerard’s wife Kimberly, and their children Michael, Julia, and Christopher; his niece Sandra (Ombalsky) Miceli and her husband Michael; his nephew Joseph Ombalsky and Joseph’s wife Isabelle; his brother-in-law Michael Ombalsky and Michael’s wife Rita; and many cousins and friends.
Jerry was predeceased by his wife Geraldine; his parents Gerardo Rocco and Viola (Colatrella) Nicolette; his brother-in-law Joseph Ombalsky, Jr., and Joseph’s wife Carole.
Because of current health advisories, a private entombment service will be held with immediate family members only.
