Jeffrey Michael Ira Kneler

Freehold - Jeffrey Michael Ira Kneler died Friday, February 23, 2018, at CentraState Medical Center, Freehold. He was 66.

Born in Brooklyn, he and his family relocated to a chicken farm in Manalpan, where they raised 10,000 chickens - the hardest part was remembering each of their names. He ended up settling in Freehold, NJ, where he raised his family in the home that he designed and built especially for them.

Prior to retiring, he was a Real Estate Developer and built homes for many different famillies. He and his father owned and operated Kneler Family Homes for more than 20 years. As part of their routine, they ate lunch at the Golden Bell Diner every day.

Jeff and his brother-in-law, David, coached both of their daughters in youth girls AAU basketball for more than 10 years. He also loved to ski with his family and friends at their home away from home in Windham Mountain. Jeff was a congregant of Agudath Achim in Freehold, NJ.

He was predeceased by his parents, Gary and Faye Kneler.

Surviving is his loving wife of 30 years, Teresa; his daughters, Ashlie Kneler and her fiance Kemp, and Harlie Kneler; his sister, Susie Kneler Okun; and many other extended family members and friends.

Funeral services will be held on Monday at 1PM at Bloomfield-Cooper Jewish Chapels, 44 Wilson Ave., Manalapan. Burial will immediately follow at Congregation Agudath Achim Cemetery in Freehold. For more information, or to post a tribute online, please visit
