James Richard Verga, of Bayonne, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 22, 2020.  “Jimmy” as he was known by all, was born in Jersey City, and has resided most of his adult life in Bayonne. He worked various jobs throughout his life, mostly as a handyman and doing odd jobs in the construction field.  

A free spirited person by nature, Jimmy appreciated the outdoors and thoroughly enjoyed riding his bicycle around town and going fishing.  He was known as a kind soul who never hesitated to lend a helping hand to others and had a passion within his heart to see the good in everyone.  He had a fierce love for his family and his friendships with people were fast and enduring.  He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him and will never be far from memories reach.

Jimmy was predeceased by his beloved parents, Vincent and Marjorie (nee: O’Neil) Verga. He is survived by one brother, Charlie Verga, and two sisters, Doreen Verga and Marie Verga.  He was the loved and cherished uncle to his many nieces and nephew and great-nieces and great-nephews.  He will also be fondly remembered by his many dear friends.

I’ll Be There

There was no time to say goodbye
But this I ask – please do not cry
Remember me as you think best
The happy times – forget the rest

Look for me and I’ll be there
And you will find me everywhere
In the gentle touch of breeze
That cools the skin or swirls the leaves

In the scent and color of flowers
That gave to me such happy hours
On sunny days under sunny skies of blue
Just think of me, I’ll be with you

In winter when there’s cloud or mist
The rain will give to you my kiss
As wood smoke lingers in the air
Look for me and I’ll be there

Where seagulls cry above the sea
And surf rolls in so endlessly
Among towering trees that soar above
In all these things that i once loved
Look for me and I’ll be there
You’ll feel my presence everywhere
