Since 1985 Gabriel Pelaggi Monuments Inc. in Dover and East Hanover, NJ has been serving families like yours with dignity, respect, and pride. Here at Pelaggi Monuments we are the actual stone cutters, and all our work is guaranteed. Since the early 1940's Biagio Pelaggi, a talented young artist began working with stone in his native country of Italy alongside his father, and grandfather. Mr. Pelaggi later immigrated to the United States and continued his talent as a stone cutter, and monument designer. Gabriel Pelaggi (Biagio's son) has been working alongside his father in the business since he was eight years old. Mr. Pelaggi's dream of creating a long lasting legacy has become reality. Quickly, following in his father's footsteps, now more than 30 years later Gabriel has brought his talent and expertise to the industry and has continued the quality of craftsmanship in every monument that he designs. Gabriel's success and dedication in doing what he loves has brought Pelaggi Monuments to their second location in Dover, NJ where all the work is actually done. Gabriel later employed his wife to assist him in the daily office tasks and assist families in design and teaching her the skills needed to carry on this tradition. This truly is a Family Business. Here in Dover we have a beautiful display of various monuments, and lettering available show casing our craftsmanship. Our newest location in East Hanover, NJ is also an extension of our beautifully designed monuments. Gabriel is the fifth generation carrying on the legacy of quality craftsmanship.
