Samuel D. Marrazzo

August 24, 1947 - February 23, 2024


It is with great sadness that the family of Samuel (Sam) Marrazzo announces his sudden passing on Friday, February 23, 2024, at the age of 76.


Sam will be remembered by his loving wife of 54 years, Margaret Marrazzo (Scott), daughter Mary Marrazzo Saltzman and her husband, Josh; and his loving granddaughters, Samantha Christine and Mary Catherine.  He is also survived by his brother Joseph Marrazzo and his family.


Sam was preceded in death by his parents and business partners Mary and Donald Marrazzo.

Sam was a graduate of Pennsbury High School and upon graduation immediately became involved in the family business at Marrazzo’s Quality Food Market on South Broad Street in Trenton, N.J. He had an innate entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen which enabled him to expand his business ventures after the retirement of his parents. Initially he expanded the business to Robbinsville, NJ and then to Marrazzo’s Market in Ewing, N.J.He was widely recognized and respected in the business world. He sat on the board of Yardville Bank and First Trust Bank in addition to the board of the Retail Marketing Group (RMG).


One of his greatest pleasures was greeting his customers each day. They became his friends, and he took a very personal interest in each and every one of their stories. Everyone was aware of his high personal and professional standards. He always believed his customers deserved the best of himself and his employees. He truly was “Marrazzo’s Market”.

 

Thank you to all of his employees over the last 58 years.  Always remember, "If there is time to lean, there is time to clean."

Sam did not want a funeral.  Instead, he wanted everyone who knew him to remember their conversations, laughter and good times.

 

 Arrangements are under the direction of the Buklad-Merlino Memorial Homes, Hamilton.


Donations in Sam’s memory can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or to the charity of your choice.

Dear Marrazzo Family,


Deepest sympathy, on your loss, his recommendations and advice was always welcome to Mom and Dad, when they owned Lieggi's. Ewing has lost a jewel as they lost a diamond when my parents passed away. I know he is still working in heaven.


Sincerely,

I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Marrazzo. It was always a pleasure to visit the Market and have him greet me and my daughter with a hearty “Hello, how are you?”, especially leading up to a big holiday. I also enjoyed hearing him ad libbing the day’s specials over the store intercom. So happy and always enjoying himself! He will be missed! Thoughts and prayers to his family.

Sam and I were best if friends in high school Pennsbury 1965

We just hung out together at McDonalds on Olden Ave. we raced cars at drag strips and a little street racing. Cruised around town at night. We served in the Army in 1967 at Ft.Dix

We were both devastated when our good friend Al Korona was killed in Vietnam. We were at his funeral and both grew up that day!

We lost contact and went our separate ways! I planned on stopping by the store but when the pandemic hit that changed everything!

I looked at some old picture from the 60's and 70's with us escorting our dates to the Ewing prom class of 65

Even have…
