James Gary Caggiano of Phoenix, went to be with the Lord on October 18, 2023. He will be sorely missed by his wife Nancy, his children Yvonne Patterson (Mike), Michelle Feno (Phil), Renee Caggiano, Marie Bias (Joe), Michelangelo Caggiano (Kristi), brother Doug Fields, sister Diane Fields, children by marriage Jonathan Snider (Donna), Lorraine Scorza (Jim) and their families. He was adored by his grandchildren Daniel, Melissa, Sophia, Rachael, Danielle, Erin, Tyler, Elise, Michael, Matthew, Erika, Kaitlyn, Danny, 44 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren.
Gary was a skilled artist and painted in the tradition of the old masters. He also worked as an ironworker and was a Golden Gloves champion boxer.
It is difficult to describe the rare gem that was Gary. He was loving, charismatic, funny and had many friends. But the most important quality was the way he reflected the character of God in the way he loved people and his family.
