Jeffrey Joseph Sumner

December 18, 2019


Jeffrey Joseph Sumner, 64 of Montague, NJ passed away on December 18, 2019.

Born in Hempstead, NY, Jeff lived in Florida and Upstate NY before relocating to New York City, and finally to New Jersey several years ago. After proudly serving his country in the Air Force as a radio mechanic from 1975 - 1978, Jeff graduated from Syracuse University and worked as a salesman for many years until his retirement. An avid patron of theatrical arts, Jeff was a talented actor, and enjoyed singing and dancing. Above all, Jeff treasured time spent with his son, whether it was coaching his baseball team, attending a professional ballgame or having a relaxing day together on the golf course.

Jeff was the loving father of Joseph Sumner; brother of Karen Fonseca and Barbara Caorsi, and uncle of Thomas McMillan.

A graveside service with military honors will be held at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Wrightstown, NJ on Thursday January 16, 2020 at 1PM. Arrangements are in the care of the Galante Funeral Home in Caldwell, NJ (973-226-1801)
