Ralph E. Clauer

AGE: 84 • Sea Bright

Ralph E. Clauer passed away peacefully at his home in Sea Bright on July 21, 2017 at 84 years old. Arrangements by August F. Schmidt Memorial Funeral Home, 139 Westfield Ave., Elizabeth.

Ralph is preceded in death by his loving wife of 62 years, Joann (Heller), with whom he enjoyed raising a family in Roselle and Sea Bright, while working at Elizabethtown Gas Company. He loved music and fishing, helping out at Sea Bright United Methodist Church, and improving the world around him, including his time on the Sea Bright Beautification Committee. Ralph was especially fond of going out to meet friends for breakfast, and will be remembered for his friendly smile and easy laugh.

He is survived by his children Sharon Siggins and her husband, Eric, of Piscataway, and Kenneth Clauer and his wife, Marlene of Linden; his brother Henry Clauer, of Massachusetts; four grandchildren, Holly, Jason, Tracy, and Rebeca, and three great-grandchildren.

A graveside service will be held at Cloverleaf Memorial Park, Woodbridge, NJ. on Thursday, July 27 at 11:30. Memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.
