Richard, “Richie” Huzar, 77, passed away peacefully with his family at his home in Manahawkin, NJ on the evening of Saturday, July 18, 2020. Originally from Newark, NJ, Richard later moved to Edison, NJ where he and his wife, Mary Ann raised their three loving sons, though every summer was spent with extended family and friends in Rockaway Beach, NY and LBI, NJ throughout the years. Richard grew passions for crabbing, fishing, boating, lottery and sports, always cheering for his NY METS and JETS. He also grew his career as an Electrical Project Engineer with Kraft Foods for many years. Most of all though, Richie cared so deeply for his family.
Richard was pre-deceased by his father, Michael Huzar; his mother, Mary Huzar Major and brother, Michael Huzar. He is survived by his adoring wife, Mary Ann Huzar of 57 years; son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Antonella Huzar of Marlboro, NJ; sons Craig and Brian Huzar of Manahawkin, NJ; his two beautiful granddaughters, Isabella and Claudia Huzar; his sister and brother-in-law, Nancy and Thomas Clemens of Frederick, MD; his brother-in-law and wife, Louis and Emma Osiecki of Barnegat, NJ and his sister-in-law Anna Huzar of Tuckerton, NJ. Richard will also be remembered by countless nieces and great-nieces; nephews and great-nephews; cousins and friends who are all blessed to have amazing memories with such a passionate man that always called for respect. He will be surely missed by his little Boston Terrier pal, Oliver, as well.
Viewing will be Thursday, July 23, 2020 from 4-7 PM at Barnegat Funeral Home, 841 West Bay Ave., Barnegat, NJ. Private Cremation to follow. (www.BarnegatFH.com)
