The Passing of Mayor Frank Gambatese

Saturday, March 25, 2017   It is with great sorrow that South Brunswick has lost our longtime Mayor Frank Gambatese this morning after a brief illness. Mayor Gambatese was the longest serving mayor in the history of South Brunswick after being elected in 2002 but his total commitment to South Brunswick spans 20 years working diligently to improve the quality of life for not only the township’s residents but also businesses and the environment.

The Kendall Park Fire Company and the South Brunswick Fire Service will truly miss Mayor Gambatese and his tireless effort and dedication to the community and public safety.

Mayor Gambatese is survived by his two sons Franc Jr. and John Paul; along with his three daughters MaryAnne Bross, Rosemary Peng, and Christine Alencewicz; and loved by 11 grandchildren.

Today at approximately 11:50 am KPVFC was dispatched to a reported oven fire on Stanford Drive. Upon arrival crews found a heavy smoke condition inside the residence with a fire in the kitchen. When Engine 222's crew entered the structure to start an interior attack the fire self vented out of the rear of the structure. The crew was able to quickly knock down the bulk of the fire and other in-coming companies assisted with extinguishment of hot spots and overhaul. Other Fire Departments on scene were Monmouth Junction, Kingston, Plainsboro and Rocky Hill. North Brunswick and Franklin Park Fire Departments provided coverage for South Brunswick while we worked at the scene. Also on scene was the South Brunswick Police Department, Kendall Park First Aid Squad and South Brunswick EMS. The South Brunswick Fire Marshals office is conducting an investigation to determine the exact cause of the fire. Thank you to everyone for your assistance today.
