Larry "Rick" Ricciuto

AGE: 91 • Berkeley Township

Larry "Rick" Ricciuto, 91, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 in Berkeley Twp, NJ.

Larry was born June 8, 1926 in Bronx, New York, to Lawrence and Josephine Ricciuto. In 1944 Larry enlisted in the Navy and served aboard the USS Bunker Hill.

He returned to Kearney, New Jersey where he began his career in Fire and Safety by becoming a firefighter. This career path would later take him to Fairbanks, Alaska where he married and eventually had two daughters while on assignment in the Bahamas.

He later moved to Florida and reunited with his old flame, Claire. The two were married in 1994. Larry was an avid golfer, and spent his days on the golf course, and played cards with his friends at the clubhouse.

He moved back to New Jersey in 2014 with his wife and lived in Silver Ridge Park No. where he played Bocce and cards with his friends until his death.

Larry is survived by his wife, Claire Ricciuto of Toms River, New Jersey; daughters, Samantha Ricciuto and Lorri Robertson of Fairbanks, Alaska; niece, Andrea Ricciuto of Palm Bay, FL; step children, Claire Frusciante, Michael and Lori Bereza of Toms River and Matt Bereza of Brick; step grandchildren John Frusciante and Mike Bereza.

At the request of Larry, there will be no services, and his ashes will be scattered near his family in Miami, FL.
