Obituary for Richard M Delano

Richard M  Delano
Richard Delano, 68, of Mays Landing was tragically taken from us in a construction accident on June 20, 2018. Beloved husband of Victoria, devoted father to Jason (Amy), Joshua (April), Jake and Benjamin. Also survived by his grandchildren, Briana, Jason Jr., Shane & Grace and his sister Cathy (Al) and brothers Robert (Marie) & Randy (Marianne), & many nieces & nephews. He will be sadly missed by his extended family, friends and relatives, especially by his best friend John Callahan. Rick will be sorely missed by his only “daughter” Maddie, his German Shepherd, who gave him the royal welcome each and everyday.

Rick started Jersey Devils in 1974 and worked 44 long years through all kinds of weather & all kinds of adversity. He loved the customers, he loved making everybody happy. Rick was the hardest working man most have ever met, and no matter what went wrong he always said, “don’t worry, it’ll be fine.” And because of him, it always was. Jersey Devils was his pride & joy right to the very end.

He adored his family and was an integral part of all of his sons’ lives. He coached pee-wee football in Brigantine, and never missed a tennis match, no matter how hard he had to work later.

He was extremely well known around the entire South Jersey area. And those he didn’t know, quickly took a liking to him. He had an infectious smile, sunny disposition and was incapable of saying NO. He was a handsome, strong man with a ruddy complexion, chiseled face and the most beautiful baby blue eyes.

He was a thoughtful, considerate, kind, loving man ~ the ultimate husband.

He was excited to go on vacation with his camper which he had been refurbishing for months, and looked forward to having new adventures with his new obsession.

He will be missed beyond belief.

A Memorial Service will be at Boakes Funeral Home, 6050 Main St., Mays Landing, on Thursday, June 28, 2018 where family and friends may gather from 2pm-4pm and a service will be held at 4 PM.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the family for expenses or to the Jake R. Delano and/or Benjamin M. Delano College Fund, c/o Boakes Funeral Home, 6050 Main St., Mays Landing, NJ 08330
