Richard Squeo Sr. Obituary

Richard J. Squeo Sr., known affectionately as Richie to his friends and loved ones, passed away peacefully on January 3, 2024, at Bayshore Medical Center, Holmdel.  Born on April 17, 1948, in Manhattan and raised in New York. Richie moved to Keansburg when he was 17 years old.

Predeceased by his parents, Leonard and Anna Squeo, as well as his siblings, Richie's legacy is carried forward by his beloved family. His wife of 54 years, Sharon Squeo, has been his steadfast partner in life's journey. Together, they raised a family that includes their two sons, Richard Squeo and his wife Denise of Middletown, and Thomas Squeo of Keansburg; their daughter, Julie Dickenson and her husband Frank of Keansburg; and their cherished grandchildren, Richie, Alyssa, Tyler, and Karlee. Each family member was a source of immense pride and joy for Richie.

Richie dedicated 47 years of his life to his work as a truck driver, retiring from Farruggios, the last company he drove for. His work ethic and commitment to his profession were unparalleled, earning him the respect and admiration of his colleagues and peers. Beyond his professional life, Richie was a member of the Middletown Elks #2179 for 45 years, where he forged lasting friendships and contributed to the community.

Richie's interests and hobbies were as vibrant and diverse as his personality. An avid fisherman, his dedication to coaching both men's and women's softball teams, sharing his passion and knowledge of the game with others.

Bowling was another of Richie's favorite pastimes, and he enjoyed the camaraderie and competition found at the lanes. His competitive spirit also shone brightly on the racetrack, where he raced his car, affectionately named "96 Tears," much to the delight of his family and friends.

Above all, Richie was a family man. He cherished the time spent with his loved ones, whether it was a quiet evening at home or a lively gathering with extended family and friends. His dogs, Corky and Ravin, were also a source of happiness and companionship. Richie's life was one of joyful moments, shared experiences, and an endless capacity for love. He left an indelible mark on the hearts of those who knew him.

Arrangements were under the direction of the Jacqueline M. Ryan Home for Funerals 233 Carr Ave. Keansburg. Cremation will be private.
