Robert E Magda

AGE: 82 • Lanoka Harbor

Robert E. Magda, 82, passed away peacefully from this world on February 26, 2017. Bob was born on February 23, 1935 in Bayonne, NJ, where he attended Our Lady Of Mount Carmel School and graduated with pride from Bayonne Tech High School. Although he worked for over 30 years for the Western Electric Company in Kearny, NJ, his lifelong passion was the silver screen of Hollywood, and he had accumulated a personal library of over 3,000 films and was especially fond of Westerns, musicals, action films and comedies from Hollywood's Golden Age. His electric taste in films carried over to his love of music. Everything from Bernie White to Elvis Presley and Mario Lanza to Roy Rogers.

Surviving are his wife of 56 years, Mrs. Viola Magda of Lanoka Harbor, NJ; four sons, Robert Peter Magda, of Lanoka Harbor, NJ; Edward Paul Magda, of Sarasota, FL; William John Magda, of Lanoka Harbor, NJ; Kirk Alan Magda, of Lilburn, GA; and two daughters, Elizabeth Catherine Robinson of Pascoug, RI and Nancy Ann Rosuck of Coral Springs, FL. Bob was also the proud grandfather to nine grandchildren: Christopher, Kristen, Kelly, Deanna, Eddie, Mark, Kevin, Jake and Devon.

The viewing will be held Thursday, March 2nd from 4:00 to 8:00 PM at Layton's Home For Funerals, located at 250 West Lacey Road in Forked River, NJ. A funeral mass will be held on Friday, March 3rd at 12:30 PM at St. Mary's Church located at 747 West Bay Avenue in Barnegat, NJ. Burial will follow at Saint Mary's Cemetery, Stafford Township.
