Jay Ira Wohl (79) passed away Wednesday, February 1, 2023 peacefully in his sleep after a brave battle with cancer. Jay, fondly known as Butch, was born to Herman and Jessie Wohl in Orange, New Jersey. He worked as an industrial roofer during his life and co-owned his own business (Ramig Roofing Co) for over 30 years until he retired.

His larger-than-life personality, sense of humor and big heart will be greatly missed.
