Biaggio “Bob” DiMarzo, age 67 of Old Tappan, formerly of Fort Lee, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, July 18, 2020.

He was always generous and supportive of his family, friends, and neighbors, and his warm nature made everyone feel included. He loved to share his greatest joys with others, like classic rock, competitive games, his yard, love of Italian culture, and a glass of his homemade limoncello.

Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 43 years, Nancy (nee. Crossan). He was a devoted father to Nicole Berzkalns and her husband Drew, Robert DiMarzo and his wife Erica. Cherished grandfather to Zoe Berzkalns. Loving brother to Diane Ricca. Adored son of Bianca (nee. DeFilippis) and the late Bruno DiMarzo.

A private family funeral has been planned. For condolences directions or information call 201-944-0100 or

Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Nancy, Nicole, and Family,
    Words cannot describe how sorry we are at this loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you greive.
    All Our Love,
    Dominique, Vlad, Alex, and Vlad Damian

  2. Oh Nancy,
    I am so terribly sad and devastated about this. I was there in the beginning when you guys met in Florida. Once you guys locked eyes, I knew it was permanent. We all knew. I will truly truly miss Bobby’s smile. I will always miss that Bobby was the only human on the planet who could call me “Aquaman” (cause I can’t swim) and get away with it. Much love – Paul Krasner.

  3. Bob was a wonderful man. His bear hugs, outstretched arms and big smiles were just a few of his signature moves. Listening to Tom Jones was never the same for us after we met Bob. Love, James and Alyse

  4. Some of my favorite memories include the Wiffle ball games in the street in front of your house after stuffing our faces all day with good food. From the time we were little kids running around all over the place right into adulthood, Bobby would always be rounding us up, picking the teams for us in order to get things moving so we could play. He was an amazing man, full of so much life and laughter. He will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace Bobby, until we meet again. Love, Gencina

  5. Dear Nancy Nicole and Rob,
    We wish we could be with you during this very sad time but know with the covid restrictions it is not possible.
    We will always remember Bob's great smile, his love for his family, his hopefulness and his valiant fight against his terrible disease.
    Jill and John
