Obituary

Andrew Repka passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 19.  Andrew was born in Dubinne , Slovakia on September 12, 1939 to Agnes and Joseph Repka.  He came to the United States and was raised in Jersey City, NJ.  He graduated from St. Peter’s Preparatory Academy and went on to receive his Bachelor’s degree from St. Peter’s College.  He proudly served in the U.S. Army where he left service as a Captain, after which he received a Master’s Degree from George Washington University and then began his work as a hospital administrator. 

In 1973 Andrew married  the love of his life, Daria Morresi.  Together they raised three children as well as Daria’s sister who Andrew loved as his own.  Andrew is missed and loved by his wife of 49 years, Daria (Morresi), sister in law Lisa Mobilio (Dominick Mobilio) and his nephews, Michael, Daniel and Christopher Mobilio, his children Adam Repka, Christina Repka-Davis(Spencer Davis), Evaleena Repka-Fisher (Mark Fisher), and grandchildren Emily and Elizabeth Fisher and Radek and Violet Davis.  

Andrew was a simple man who above all else loved God and his family.  He was devoted to his Catholic faith and lived his life guided by Jesus’s teachings. He was an example of love, strength, service and devotion.  Andrew loved music and sang in barbershop quartets, in church choirs and any chance that he got.  He loved his grandchildren immensely and they loved him back with equal fervor.  He was a harmonica player, a polka dancer, an eccentric dresser, a baby whisperer, a lover of baked goods and an all around kind and loving soul.  The world was a better place with him in it but we are comforted by the fact that he is in a better place, reunited with those he loved who went before him.  

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Oak Ridge, NJ, on Monday, April 25 at 11 AM. Interment of cremains to follow at the St. Thomas the Apostle Cemetery on the church grounds.
