Montclair Mourns Loss of Local Hero Yogi Berra PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Yogi Berra 1956Montclair mourns the loss of hometown hero, Yankee legend Yogi Berra, who passed away late last night at the age of 90. Yogi and wife Carmen resided in Montclair for nearly 40 years.

“I am dee‎ply saddened by the loss of Mr. Berra and my heartfelt condolences go out to his wonderful family,” said Mayor Robert Jackson.

Considered one of baseball’s greatest players of all time, Mr. Berra was also known for colorful “Yogi-isms” such as “It’s déjà vu all over again” and “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”

“When you get to a fork in the road take it,” was how Mr. Berra told his friend Joe Garagiola to get to the Yankee legend’s home in Montclair.

The fork is located at the corner of Edgewood Road and Edgewood Terrace has been memorialized to honor the Township’s famous one-time resident with the alternate name of Yogi Berra Way.

Montclair passed an ordinance in November of 2012 to add Berra’s name to Edgewood Terrace as a tribute to the local hero. The Yogi Berra Way street sign was officially unveiled at a commemorative ceremony in January, 2013.

“War hero, legend, gentleman, and patriarch apply but are woefully inadequate," said Mayor Jackson. "We love you Mr. Berra. Rest in peace.”

Monday, September 21, 2015

Last year, Boy Scout Troop 8, led by Eagle Scout applicant, John Gouwar, created the Montclair Snow Buddies program designed to pair senior citizens in the community who need help during the winter shoveling snow with volunteers who assist them. John developed the program as a small-scale pilot project in partnership with the Montclair Health Department and the Senior Citizens Advisory Committee (SCAC). This year John and fellow scouts from Troop 8 are committed to expanding the project in an effort to help a greater number of Montclair’s senior citizens.

But they need your help.
