Leber Funeral Home


Willy R Emanuele

September 28, 1954December 30, 2020

Willy Emanuele. A private, family-only viewing will be held on January 8th, with a Facebook (LEBER FUNERAL HOME) watch option for others to join. Burial to follow. Willy Emanuele died unexpectedly on December 30, 2020. His departure from this world has left a hole in the hearts of his family and friends.

He was born and raised in Lima Peru on September 28, 1954. He moved to the United States in 1983 to pursue the American dream. He was the widower of Margarita Emanuele (nee Echevarria). They shared 35 years of marriage before her passing in 2019.

He loved being a bus driver for Jersey City Board of Education, a job he held for over 15 years. He loved Santana, but above all else he loved his wife, Margarita, whom he now joins in heaven. He was a devoted, loving, and generous father to his two children.

Those who knew Willy knew that he was an incredibly dedicated man. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and often took on tasks around the house no matter how difficult. Home Depot may remember him well, as he often spent hours back and forth buying and returning materials he had measured incorrectly - even though he owned three tape measurers. He was lighthearted and jovial and never missed an opportunity to discuss Peruvian politics. There are no words to adequately express the heartache his family and friends are faced with at this time.

Willy will be forever remembered by his children, Carla and her husband Justin Giza, his son Willie, sisters-in-law Lucila and Alicia Echevarria, nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. An invitation-only mass in his honor will be scheduled later on this month.
