AGE: 84 • Milltown
Dezso "Des" Nemeth passed away April 15, 2014 just three days after his 84th birthday. He was born in Papa, Hungary and came to the United States in November of 1956. In 1957, he met his wife Ellie and they were married October 4th of the same year. They lived in New Brunswick for a short time before buying a house and moving to Milltown where they still reside and raised their three wonderful children. Desi worked for N.B. Scientific Co. for 35 years. Starting out as a machinist, he retired as a foreman in 1993. He was such a gifted and talented man with the ability to build or repair anything with the utmost perfection. His home and property, which he was always so fond of, are proof of his labor and talent. His first love was undoubtedly his family, and his second was music. He enjoyed listening to songs of his native Hungary, which he often sung with his beautiful voice. Gardening was yet another of his favorite past times with red roses being his most favorite flower. In addition, Desi was a wonderful dancer to the joy of his loving wife Ellie. Desi was a long time member of the HAAC of New Brunswick. He served as a coordinator of the dinner and dance functions at the club for 15 years.
He was predeceased by his beloved and only son Dezso (Desi) Joseph in 1991; his parents Stephen and Teresia Nemeth and his four siblings. To cherish his loving memories Desi leaves behind his beloved wife Alvera (Ellie) Nemeth; his wonderful and most loving daughters, Kathleen Johnson and Darleen Scuderi; his most loved and adored granddaughters, Dawn Gillings and Kaitlyn, Hayley and Madison Scuderi; his great son-in-law Joseph Scuderi and his grandson-in-law John Kennedy. He also leaves behind a sister in Hungary Annus Csallo, as well as several nephews and nieces.
We will miss having the Husband, Daddy and Pop that we knew we could always go to and rely on for anything; the warm days we spent sitting under the tree in the backyard; and the long nights we sang, danced or played cards around the dining room table. We will forever carry you and all the memories we've shared in our hearts. We know you will be watching over us and holding all of our hands, as you always loved to do, until we see you again, Love you always and forever-- Your Most Loving Family.
