Herbert G. Carbone Jr.

Toms River - Herbert G. Carbone, Jr. of Toms River passed away on Saturday December 2nd at home surrounded by his family and his dog, Brandy. Born in Matawan, NJ on October 7th 1936. He grew up there and graduated from Matawan High School in 1954.

While at Matawan High School he was a member of the Championship Football teams in 1952 and 1953. His Football team was inducted into the Matawan High School Football Hall of Fame, where he was a proud member. As a Track and Field athlete, he had many standout performances. In April of 1954, he ran the second leg of the winning mile relay team running against some of the best teams across the country at the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia, PA.

Upon graduation from High School at the age of 17, he joined the US Army during the Korean War and served his country in Puerto Rico, Panama, Fort Dix and Fort Monmouth. He was worked as Communications Specialist and was a member of the swim team. He was a member of American Legion Post 129 of Toms River, NJ and AmVets Post 2 of Jackson, NJ. Following his time in the military he attended Rutgers University and graduated in 1964 with a Bachelors Degree in Accounting. Following graduation he worked for many major corporations in New York City as an accountant. In 1983 he made a career change and joined EF Hutton and Co. as a Financial Advisor and had a fulfilling career. For 26 years he developed many great relationships and built lifelong friendships with clients and coworkers. Herb retired from Smith Barney as a Vice President in July 2009.

He loved sports and was a lifelong fan of the New York Giants, Yankees, Knicks, and the Rutgers Football and Basketball teams. His favorite times during retirement were watching his grandchildren play sports. Nothing could keep him away from the numerous football, basketball, baseball games, wrestling matches, track and field and cross country meets.

His other passion was Horse Racing. He spent many of his summers at Monmouth Park Racetrack and Saratoga Racetrack. What he looked forward to the most though were his bi-annual road trips to Louisville, KY for the Kentucky Derby and the Churchill Downs Fall meet which he attended for over 40 years with his sons, grandson and friends. He also made numerous friends in Louisville that he became very close to over that time period. He was looked upon as the leader of the "Jersey Boys" and was always welcomed with a lot of love and respect from all the local residents.

Over the course of his life, Herb was a friend and mentor to many. He used his knowledge, experiences and life skills to help many family members and friends. Whenever they needed someone to talk to or had a challenge that they needed to overcome he always had a way of making the most daunting situation or unsurmountable challenge seem more manageable. It brought him pride knowing that his time, energy and resources could be used to assist and benefit others throughout his life. No matter what the circumstance he always maintained a positive outlook on life especially during his battle with cancer which he ultimately overcame.

Herb is survived by his loving wife Clare (DiBello) Carbone of 45 years who was his best friend and meant so much to him. He is predeceased by his sister Susan Pike, and his son John Edward Carbone. He is survived by his sister Joan Podstawski of Marlboro, NJ, his children Christopher Alan Carbone and wife Deborah of Sea Girt, NJ, Teresa Louise DeLuise and husband Joseph of Mt.
