Raymond H. Rifenburg

AGE: 84 • Middletown

Raymond H. Rifenburg, 84, of Middletown, passed away Monday, December 5th, at King James Care Center. Ray was born and raised in Jersey City, one of 8 children born to the late Mary and John Rifenburg.

Ray served the US Army in the Morse Code Signal Support Company at Fort Monmouth during the Korean War. After the war, he moved to Keansburg for a while before settling in Middletown 50 years ago. Ray was a police officer in Keyport for several years, and co-owned Hollywood Beauty Salon in Keansburg with his wife Berta, but ultimately made his career as a meat cutter at A & P Grocery Stores throughout New Jersey. Ray enjoyed bowling but his favorite pastime was fishing. He owned several boats over the years and even squeezed in fishing time at the Atlantic Highlands harbor while on his lunch break.

Ray was predeceased by his wife of 56 years, Alberta, this past June , and his siblings John, Clifford, William, Mary, Edith, Cora and Mildred. He is survived by his devoted niece Dr. Patricia Generelli, her daughter Carly, brother-in-law John Generelli, nephew Richard Rifenburg and his beloved cat, Penny. Ray also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and friends.

Friends and relatives may pay their respects Thursday from 4-8 pm at Scott & Kedz Home for Funerals, 153 Church St., Belford. A funeral service will take place at 5 that evening. Condolences may be sent by visiting www.scottkedzfuneralhome.com
