Garrett James Marinella, 40, formerly of Emerson, NJ, passed away suddenly on Thursday, March 11th, 2021.
Garrett was a kind tender hearted soul, who loved to landscape, spend time at the beach with his family, and loved to take his children fishing.
Many years ago Garrett was stolen by the ‘silent epidemic” of heroin addiction, yet our love for him and hope for recovery never wavered as we painfully watched his destruction. His fight to break free from the relentless tentacles of addiction has sadly taken its toll. And on March 11, 2021, God’s hand released this relentless grip; touched his soul; lending comfort, while guiding Garrett to the place of eternal peace. We will always miss you and wish you were here –but now we know you are safe and at peace.
Garrett was preceded in death by his loving grandmother Lorraine (nee) Pricolo and husband Dave J Burre; and his maternal grandfather Victor Pascarella of Louisa VA.
He is survived by his parents Vicki and Steve Solimando of Little Egg Harbor New Jersey, a brother Chase Marinella and wife Emma of Westbrookville, NY and children; a son Colton James and daughter Kaitlin Rose both of Charlottesville, VA; and the numerous extended family of aunts uncles and cousins.
A memorial and celebration of Garrett’s life will be hosted by his parents in their home, Saturday April 24, 2021, at 12PM.
Address: 32 Rivercrest Drive, Little Egg Harbor Township, NJ.
