Born in: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Resided in: Fort Lee, New Jersey

It’s impossible to sum up the life of Gabriel Szriftgiser in a short obituary. On June 7th, 2024, Gabriel left this earth at the age of 68. He was a massive presence, full of love, life, and joy. He was hysterically funny and everyone’s go-to for life advice. He was devoted to his family, and he was always worrying if everyone was ok.

He died at the airport in Spain, one of his favorite places. He loved to travel and was passionate about his business, but most of all he was a loyal family man and friend.

Gabriel is survived by his beautiful mother and sister, Susana Seivach and Patricia Szriftgiser; his partner of 17 years, Maria deArmas; his beloved daughters that he devoted his life to, Florencia Szriftgiser Norton and Sabrina Szriftgiser; the lights of his life, his grandsons Noah Norton and Ari Norton; and his loving son-in-law and brother-in-law Chris Norton and Barry Horowitz.

We will remember Gaby and his legacy, and honor him every day.
