Frederick Charles Leonardis Iii Obituary
Frederick Charles Leonardis III

Monmouth Beach - Frederick Charles Leonardis III, a longstanding resident of Monmouth Beach, passed away peacefully on August 12th, 2018. Fred was born in Newark and raised in Nutley before eventually moving to the Jersey Shore with his parents in the 1950s. He honorably served his country during his early adulthood. Upon returning home, he continued on with his career and became a legend in the boating industry. As the owner of Angler's Marina in Sea Bright, Fred would always be behind the counter with a smoke in hand and a story to tell. Throughout his 62 years in business, once you were a customer of Freddy, you were always a customer. Along with his dedication to his business, he was a member of the Monmouth Beach First Aid Squad, a committee member of Ducks Unlimited, and Marine Trade Association NJ Chapter. Fred was a family man and a great friend to all. Whether it was opening up his Vermont ski house, taking a boat ride, or just having a drink on his deck overlooking the river, Freddy always welcomed others to join him. Freddy's favorite thing in the world, besides work, was his annual trip to Cabo with his wife, Elizabeth. He was never at a loss for words and had a quick-witted personality. There is no other way to say it; he truly was "One of a Kind." Fred was predeceased by his brother Howard Van Duzer, mother Dorothy C. Leonardis, and father Frederick C. Leonardis, Jr. He is survived by his devoted wife Elizabeth Leonardis, loving stepson Andrew Cassese, future daughter-in-law Brittany Birks, daughter Stacey Carnahan, former son-in-law Michael Edwards, son Andrew Leonardis, daughter Cheryl Clarkin, son-in-law Jack Clarkin, and five grandchildren. A celebration of Fred's life will be held on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, from 5 to 9 PM at The Channel Club in Monmouth Beach. Just like at Angler's, all are welcome to come and go as they please, and bring your best Freddy story. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Marine Trade Association of NJ Scholarship Foundation, 2516 Highway 35, Suite 201, Manasquan, New Jersey 08736, at (732) 292-1051.
