Eric Patrick Cosgrove, 25, of Nutley, and formerly of Jersey City, passed away on Monday, July 27, 2020. Eric was known for being caring, kind, funny, and, most of all, loving. Eric loved sports and enjoyed watching the Mets, Giants, and 76ers. In high school, Eric was a three-sport athlete playing baseball, football, and wrestling. Eric's family will remember him by being "the peacemaker" because he got along with everyone and had real, meaningful, and loving relationships with everyone. Being the life of the party, Eric could always be found working a room and making people laugh. He was a beloved uncle and godfather, and adored his niece, Charlee, nephew, Joseph, and godson, Elias.
Eric is survived by his mother, Margaret Wares, his brother and sister-in-law, Patrick and Christina Oriani, his niece, Charlee Shea Oriani, his godson, Elias Michael King Mendez, his nephew Joseph Patrick Dugan, and his pets, Lucy and Creed as well as the very long list of cousins. Eric is predeceased in life by his father, James Patrick Cosgrove.
