Frank Alfred Gimpel

Galloway - Frank Alfred Gimpel 95, of Galloway, died peacefully Friday, April 6 at Spring Village at Galloway. Mr. Gimpel was born December 30, 1922, in the Bronx, New York to the late William and Emma Treulich Gimpel. He moved to Galloway in 2009 from Atlantic Highlands (Monmouth County) where he had been a resident for more than 50 years. Frank will be remembered as a kind, generous man, and an enthusiastic gourmand who never forgot a good restaurant and its menu highlights.

During World War II Frank Gimpel served his country as a radar repairman in the anti-aircraft artillery and as a rifleman in the 84th Infantry "Railsplitters" Division. He sustained combat injuries in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge and in Germany along other parts of the Siegfried Line, and was awarded the Purple Heart in 1945. As a college student he worked as an engine-room oiler between New York and Caracas on a Gulf Oil tanker. After graduating from Rutgers College of Engineering in 1949, Frank began a 35-year career as an electrical engineer and project manager with the U.S. Army at Fort Monmouth, in Eatontown. Mr. Gimpel earned an M.B.A. from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1976. He served on the boards of education for the Atlantic Highlands Elementary and Henry Hudson Regional school districts in the 1970s, and he was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion for many years. He remained a faithful Rutgers Scarlet Knights fan for more than 69 years.

Frank Gimpel was predeceased by his wife of 48 years, the late Harriet Coyle Gimpel in 2004; and by his brother, the late William Gimpel, Jr. in 1991. Surviving are his daughter and son-in-law, Anne and Clifford Groh of Mays Landing; his daughter and son-in-law Kathleen and Jeffrey Rosenfeld of Yucaipa, CA; his son William Gimpel and Gregory Meier of San Francisco, CA; four beloved grandchildren, Laura and Kelley Groh, and Jessica and Joshua Rosenfeld, along with many other relatives and friends. The family gratefully thanks the staff of Spring Village at Galloway for years of gentle care.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday at 10 AM from Posten's Funeral Home, 59 E. Lincoln Ave. at Central & E. Garfield Ave. Atlantic Highlands, NJ. followed by entombment beside his wife at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 100 Chapel Hill Rd., Middletown, NJ. Relatives & friends are invited to call at the funeral home on Friday, 4 - 7 PM. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Rutgers University Class of 1949 Scholarship Fund in memory of Frank Gimpel. (732-932-4636 or [email protected])
