Abner Gonzalez, 59 of Piscataway, formerly of Jersey City, entered into eternal rest on Sunday, June 16, 2019 at his home, with his family by his side. Born August 26, 1959 in Aibonito, Puerto Rico, he lived in Jersey City before Piscataway. A graduate of Ferris High School, Abner was employed as Bus Driver with Hudson County Vo Tech for the past 8 years. He was the life of the party and as such, was loved by many. His laughter, jokes, big hugs & kisses and dancing brought a smile to anyone he interacted with. He loved his trips to Atlantic City and especially Thanksgiving with the boys. He had a big heart and cared deeply for everyone. In August, he traveled to Spain and even though he was terribly ill, it was the best trip he had with family. “Hola!”
He is the beloved husband of Elizabeth, cherished father of Ashley & John, loving brother of Eliel and above all else, a friend to many.
