After Jeremy they broke the mold. He was one of those people you only met once in a lifetime. He was never happier then when he was out back, turning a wrench on the Harley, Triumph, or BSA. He had a line for everything: It rolls like a round thing, he’d say, but no one really knew why. He was an avid hunter and gun collector and loved to watch some tv on the couch downstairs with his family. He was a firefighter in Mendham and fought for our freedoms in Vietnam.
At a town festival a pretty girl asked for a ride on his motorcycle. He and the late Sarah Lewis would soon be inseparable. She was the love of his life. They were blessed with two daughters, Jacqueline (Wayne) Eaves and Jennifer (George) Sutton. He was a grandfather and chief babysitter of three: Shannon who loved combing his hair. He was the hero to Georgie and Lynne’s reading buddy. He is survived by his brothers, Matthew, Brian (Phyllis) and Galen (Linda).
Throw on a Harley shirt and come celebrate 70 laid back years Friday 3-5 p.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, Beverly where there will be a hugs and memories service at 5. Interment at 11 A.M., Saturday at Hilltop Cemetery, Mendham NJ.
