Sibilia 001.jpg

Obituary of Angelo Sibilia Angelo G. Sibilia of Palmer Township, PA, formerly of Nutley, NJ died peacefully at home after a brave battle with cancer. He was born on December 18th, 1932 in Newark, NJ, the youngest of nine children of Angelo and Philomena (Cordasco) Sibilia. He graduated from West Side High School in 1950 and went on to serve in the U.S. Army stationed at Camp Pickett in Virginia. In 1956, while at a newsstand in Newark, he noticed a pretty, blonde 19 year old girl buying a newspaper. Intrigued by the fact that it was a NY Times, he struck up a conversation with her and got her name (Sandy) but not her phone number. Unable to stop thinking about her he spent the next couple of days combing through the phone book calling every household with the same last name eventually locating her. They were married on October 21, 1956 and would welcome a son Michael and a daughter, Lisa. Sandy was the love of his life and they were happily married until her death in 2002. In March of 1959, he joined the Newark Fire Department and would serve the city until his retirement in 1993, earning several commendations. For the majority of his career, he was stationed at one of the busiest firehouses of the inner city – Engine 20, where it was not uncommon to just respond to fire calls, but also to car accidents, stabbings and shootings as well. Angelo was an avid reader and loved anything to do with history and travel, particularly Italy. He also loved his food (especially his desserts). Mostly however, he loved his family, not just immediate but extended as well. In addition to his wife and parents, he was predeceased by brothers Tony and John, sisters Marie, Agnes, Yolanda, Josephine, and Ellen. He is survived by his son Michael and daughter-in-law Kelly of San Jose, CA; daughter Lisa Rhinehart and son-in-law Scott of Annandale, NJ; grandchildren Derek (Jessica), Jamie (Spencer), Nick, Austin, Connor and Paige; great grandsons Corson and Landon; brother Jerry; brothers-in-law Peter Warren and John DeGroot; sisters-in-law Marietta Sibilia and Carla Warren and many nieces and nephews. A memorial service in celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, June 10th, 2017 at Martin Funeral Home 1761 Route 31, Clinton, NJ. Gathering begins at 11:30 with service to start at noon. Donations can be made to St. Jude's Children's Hospital, one of the many charities Angelo supported.

DC Louis Ianuzzi

DC Ianuzzi.jpg

Louis J. Iannuzzi, 98 Retired Deputy Chief, Newark FD Louis J. "Buster" Iannuzzi of Bloomfield and formerly of Newark, passed away on Wednesday, March 6, 2013. Louis was the second oldest of eight children born to Ralph and Angelina (Zarra) Iannuzzi in Newark, NJ on January 15, 1915. After graduating from Burnett Street Elementary School, Louis put aside his formal education to help support the family. As he matured he realized there was little future working delivering newspapers between New Jersey and New York, especially after his marriage to a neighborhood girl. On December 11, 1937 Edith Napolitano married Louis at St. Lucy’s Church and by 1942 they expected their first child. Daughter, Mary Ann was born shortly before Louis passed the exam for the Newark Fire Department. For the next 38 years, Louis worked two jobs and studied for promotion exams in order to provide for his wife and daughters, Mary Ann, Lois and Linda. A self-made man, he was promoted to Captain in 1952, Battalion Chief in 1963 and Deputy Chief in 1973. Louis succeeded so well that he assisted other firefighters to prepare for their exams. Eventually he was asked to teach courses at Essex County and Passaic County Colleges dealing with fire science as well as the fire codes for uniform construction (BOCA). For 16 years, Louis also served as an oral examiner for the Civil Service System promotion exams statewide. Family was very important to Louis and Edith. For years, they offered assistance to many in their large family whenever the need arose. Their greatest joy was their “grand” children. After Edith’s passing, Louis moved to the Job Haines Home in order to continue his daily exercise program at the Montclair Y with his brother Angelo. During his residency at Job Haines, Louis could be found in the lobby greeting visitors and serenading the residents and staff with his singing, whistling or humming, always in tune. At his request, Louis will be buried is full uniform; as a reminder to us of the love he had for his 38 years of service in the Newark Fire Department. His beloved wife Edith predeceased him after 69 years of marriage on December 23, 2006. He was also predeceased by his daughters, Mary Ann Hoffer (Sept. 2011) and Linda Spatola Ciccone (April 2010), his parents, his brothers, Salvatore, Raymond, Herbert, Angelo (Bal) and his sisters, Alice and Grace. He is survived by his daughter, Lois Guttadora and her husband, Anthony, his sons-in-law, Richard Hoffer and William Ciccone, his grandchildren, Kurt Hoffer and his children, Luke, Claire and Leo, Andrea Schraft and her husband, Herb and their children, Owen and James, Lisa Sloan and her husband, David and their children, Ian and Amy and Christina Guttadora. He also leaves his youngest brother, Ralph and his brother Angelo’s wife, Rose and many loving cousins, nieces and nephews. Funeral from the S.W. Brown & Son Funeral Home, Nutley on Monday at 9:15 am. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Lucy’s Church, Newark at 10:30 am. Entombment will follow at Hollywood Memorial Park, Union.

Joseph M. Redden January 29, 1923 – December 19, 2012 Joseph M. Redden, 89, passed away on December 19, 2012. Joe was born in Newark, New Jersey, on January 29, 1923 to John and Gertrude Redden. After graduation from South Side High School in Newark, Joe became a sheet metal apprentice in the Federal Shipbuilding & Drydock Company in Newark. At the age of 20, he joined the United States Army and served in both the European and Pacific Theatres in WWII. He was honorably discharged in 1945, holding the rank of First Sergeant. After returning from his wartime service Joe joined the Newark Fire Department in March of 1947 at the age of 24, and rose quickly through the ranks. In the state of New Jersey at that time, a firefighter’s performance on the statewide Civil Service examinations was the deciding factor in his promotion. He was promoted to Captain at age 30, Battalion Chief at age 34, and Deputy Chief at age 37. Then, in 1962, at the youthful age of 39, he placed first on the Civil Service exam and attained the position of Fire Chief of what was then about the 30th largest city in the nation according to population rank. Joe was a founding member of the Metro Chiefs Committee of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. The Metro Chiefs Committee is comprised of the Fire Chiefs from the largest cities in the nation. After retiring from the Newark Fire Department in 1977, Joe was hired by the National Fire Protection Association of Boston, MA and worked at NFPA for 12 years. He started as Chief Service Specialist, then was promoted to Division Director, and finished his career at NFPA as Assistant Vice President for Government Affairs. He left the NFPA in 1989, having successfully served the Fire Service for 42 years, first as a front line firefighter and completing his service as an advocate for national fire standards. In 1989 Joe and his wife Anne moved to North Carolina to live near their children and grandchildren. Not content to be retired, Joe became a volunteer for the Duke University Men’s Soccer Camp during his son-in-law’s tenure as Duke Soccer Coach, and, later, for the Triangle Futbol Club. He was devoted to his wife, his children, and his grandchildren and lived a life of service to his family, his community, and to God. Joe was preceded in death by his wife Anne in 1998. He is survived by his son Michael Redden, daughter and son-in-law, Kathleen and John Rennie, son and daughter-in-law Christopher and Holly Redden, and grandchildren Theodore Rennie, Grace Rennie, David Redden, Benjamin Redden, and Hannah Redden. The Mass of Christian Burial will be held Saturday, December 22nd at 11:00am at Immaculate Conception Church in Durham, with burial immediately following in Chapel Hill Memorial Cemetery.

FF Quentin G. Saums

Saums.jpg

Viewing 0930 hours Wed. Jan. 5,2011 McCracken Funeral Home 1500 Morris Ave. Union NJ Interment will follow Hollywood Mem. Park Union NJ Tom, I have taken the liberty of enclosing a picture of Quentin Saums. I am not sure there are many guy's around now who would remember him, and in my view he should be remembered. He was a quiet, low key type of guy, who never called attention to himself. He spent some time in Engine 12 on the 3rd tour then retired out of Engine 21. Always where he was suppose to be, which means you could alway's count on him. After reading the Ledger Obit I am amazed at his war record. What a guy. Just another of our many heros from the 2nd war, Korea and Vietnam. This picture was taken in the "Burg" at the Newark St. Patrick's Day Parade on Mar 15, 1987. It took me a while to find this picture, I'm very glad I did. Thought I'd share it with you. Brother Ed McCarthy
