With heavy hearts, the family of Angel A. Velez announces his sudden and unexpected passing on Friday, October 29, 2021 at the age of 51. Angel was born and raised in New York before settling in Bayonne 5 years ago.
Angel enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. He expressed his creative flair through his drawings where his works of art decorated the walls of his home. In his spare time he loved the challenge of playing video games and spending quite time with family and friends. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
Angel was predeceased by his father, Angelo Velez, in 2018. Left to cherish his memory are his dear son, Trevor Angel Velez, his loving mother, Carmen Nieves, sisters, Gisela Velez-Rivera and her husband Eric, Beatriz Velez and Jessica Velez, nieces, Brianna, Yomayra and Emma Rivera, Ariana Montalvo and Angelina Ortiz, and nephews, Justin Montalvo and E.J. Ortiz.

If Tears Could Build A Stairway
If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
I would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again
No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why
My heart still aches with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
But now I know you want me
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store
Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay
