Harry J. Dellane of Toms River passed away on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 in Galloway, N.J. while enjoying one of his frequent and beloved vacations with his wife of 56 years, Barbara.

Harry was most happy when surrounded by his family, especially during weekly Sunday dinners, holidays, and family vacations.
