Adam J. Marzano, 85, of Clifton, passed away peacefully on January 23, 2021. Adam was born in Passaic and later moved to Clifton where he resided most of his life. He served in the United States Army for two years and was a faithful parishioner of Clifton’s St. Philip the Apostle Roman Catholic Church for decades. Adam worked as a textile colorist for his entire career, having retired from Missbrenner Prints in Clifton. Adam always enjoyed woodworking, drawing and prided himself on his craft as he was always happy to lend a hand to his children by helping with countless projects in their homes. He was an avid Mets fan and passed that love of the game along to his children and grandchildren. Adam was a kind and generous soul who’s presence was adored by all. He certainly had a way with words and could quite often, put a smile on everyone’s face.
Adam was predeceased by his parents, Adam and Sarah (nee Dignam) Marzano and one brother, Emil Marzano.
Adam is survived by his devoted wife of fifty-seven years, Josephine (nee Genna) and his loving children, Maria Ragan and her husband Robert of Little Falls; Emil Marzano of Fort Myers, FL; Michael Marzano and his wife Teresa of West Caldwell; Adam Marzano Jr. and his wife Diane of Succasunna; and Joseph Marzano and his wife Melissa of Woodland Park; and his adored grandchildren Kristen Marzano, Nicole Ragan, Danielle Ragan and Adam Marzano, III.
