In 1976, Phil and Grace Sgobba purchased the Farrel Monument Company. This team of husband and wife had a simple philosophy: listen to the needs of our customers and provide them with the best quality of service possible. Today, sons Anthony and Phil Jr., together with their mother, Grace, continue that same philosophy.
At Sgobba's Monument Works, you will always be attended to personally by a Sgobba family member. Our display yard is a testament to the many and varied memorial styles that range in size and price to accommodate every budget.
The pride of our workmanship is reflected in the many memorials already in place in both religious and non-sectarian properties, such as Holy Sepulchre and Laurel Grove Cemeteries in Totowa, Cedar Lawn, and Calvary Cemeteries in Paterson, George Washington Memorial Park in Paramus, as well as the First Reformed Cemetery, Pompton Reformed Cemetery, and a host of other properties throughout the North New Jersey area.
Standing tall at 8' high and 4' wide and located on the site of Doc Bier's historic training camp in Pompton Lakes is a lasting tribute to the boxer Joe Louis. The imposing figure of Joe Louis, standing 3' high, is etched into this most unique of civic memorials.
Our civic memorials can be viewed at a variety of venues. Commissioned to design a veteran's memorial for the Township of Wayne on Route 23, this impressive memorial spanning more than 6' high and 10' wide is a fitting tribute to our war veterans and a shining example of what can be accomplished in granite style.
Memorials of the Vietnam, Korean, 1st, and 2nd World Wars can be seen and admired on the campus of the Passaic County Vocational-Technical High School, also in Wayne Township. Fashioned of black granite, these memorials reflect etchings of our people in uniform as well as the various areas in which they served.
Standing proudly before the municipal building in the Bergen County town of Fair Lawn is an impressive traditional war memorial over 7' tall and 12' wide. Inscribed there are the names of all Fair Lawn residents who gave their lives in defense of their country and the freedom we are all privileged to enjoy as citizens.
Cast in a batting pose, a lifelike bronze statue of baseball legend Larry Doby stands in Eastfield Park in Paterson. From the playgrounds in Paterson and the Negro Leagues of Newark, Larry Doby was drafted to the Cleveland Indians on July 5, 1947, becoming the American League's first black player. This memorial in particular and so many others, those already gracing our north New Jersey landscape as well as those yet to be commissioned from raw stone into creative masterpieces, stand as lasting tributes to the indomitable human spirit. They reflect the best of who we are and a timeless remembrance of what we can become.
