Philip Binaco

AGE: 86 • Shrewsbury

Philip Binaco, age 86, passed away on May 21, 2017 at Meridian Nursing & Rehabilitation at Shrewsbury. Raised in New Shrewsbury (now Tinton Falls), he was the ninth of ten children born to R. Fred and Rosina Binaco. He was predeceased by three sisters, Speranza Falbo, Adeline Bellovus, and Violet Alvino, and four brothers, Patsy, Felix, George and Charles Binaco, and his first grandson, David Daniel Binaco.

Philip is survived by his wife of 62 years, Ruth (Sonnichsen) Binaco, and three sons, Philip Andrew, David A. Binaco (Kristine) and Matthew T. all of Fair Haven, and two grandsons, Raymond A. Binaco of Springfield and Russell L. Binaco of Fair Haven. He is also survived by his brother Raymond Binaco (Terri) of Colts Neck, and his sister Flora Deady (Russell) of Blackwood, his sister-in-law Marjorie Woods of N. Fort Meyers, Florida and his brother-in-law Thomas Sonnichsen of Woodbridge, Virginia, and many nieces and nephews.

Phil, an expert climber, worked for the Asplundh Tree Expert Company for 49 years, retiring in 1997. He had a real 'green thumb' and took pride in his vegetable and flower gardens, and he was skilled at rooting a new tree from a cut branch.

Phil was a charter member of the Manchester Sportsman's Club in Whiting, New Jersey, and he proudly served as a volunteer fireman in the Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Company #1 since 1958. From 1960 until 2010 he opened clams on the half shell every night of the annual Firemen's Fair.

Andrew and Matthew Binaco, with whom Philip lived, are to be credited for the special care they provided to their dad in his last years.

Arrangements were handled by The Thompson Memorial Home on May 23rd and 24th and included a Firemen's Service and interment at Fair View Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Company, 645 River Road, Fair Haven, NJ 07704, would be welcomed.
