Gabriel Antonio Burgos

November 2, 2021


Gabriel  Antonio Burgos, 42, passed away unexpectedly, on November 2, 2021. Gabriel was born in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic to Diogenes and Marisol Burgos,  and came to the United States when he was 5.

Gabriel grew up in the Bronx, NY and graduated from T.A.F.T. high school and attended City College of NY. Gabriel worked for Bausch Health Care in Bridgewater as a customer service representative. His life really blossomed when he met his wife Sally Rochman in 1999, and they eventually went on to marry (15 years) and have two beautiful children, Samantha (9) and Christian (5). 

Gabriel was the life of the party and always lit up the room wherever he went. Gabriel had a special way about him that just made you smile when you were around him. He loved his Dominican culture and was known for making his world-famous empanadas. He loved spending time with his family, going to the beach and dancing  bachata and merengue with Sally. Gabriel loved life and was always looking for the next adventure to experience with his family.

Although Gabriel had only a short time on this Earth, he has left an imprint forever in our hearts. He lives on through our memories, his children and the people he has helped with his gift of life donation.

In addition to his wife and children, he leaves behind to cherish his memory his beloved mother, Marisol Burgos; siblings, Yesenia, Yanet, Diomari, Dione; grandmothers, Aurora Garcia, Marina Burgos; father-in-law; Bob Rochman and mother-in-law, Claudia Rochman; sister-in-law, Rebecca Rochman.
