Robert Michael Angello, 59, passed away on November 22, 2022. He was the first of four children born to Patrick and Patricia Angello of West Long Branch, NJ.
In his youth, Rob served as an altar boy at St. Jerome’s Catholic Church in West Long Branch. His love for music blossomed at a young age and he played the trumpet in the Frank Antonides Elementary School band. He was a member of the bowling and ski clubs at Shore Regional High School, where he graduated in 1981.
In his teen years, Rob taught himself to play the drums, for which he had a natural talent. He played with numerous bands, notably The Secret Syde, The Flippity Jibbits and The Blasés. He frequently performed at the Brighton Bar in Long Branch and the Green Parrot in Neptune. He played in many other venues in New Jersey and New York including the iconic CBGBs in Manhattan and Maxwells in Hoboken. He worked in construction and similar jobs until the late 1990s when he became a project manager for New Jersey Transit, where he organized a holiday band with other musician colleagues to entertain at employee parties every year.
In addition to music, Rob had many talents and interests. He was a skilled carpenter who could build or fix just about anything, and he always showed up when someone needed help with home projects or repairs. He was a member of the Jersey Shore Running Club and ran the New York City Marathon in 1998. He coached as a volunteer for the Long Branch Little League for several years in the early 2000s. He was interested in history and photography and he was an excellent cook. He loved to surf and spent a lot of time on the water and the beaches in Long Branch with friends. He was outgoing, social and comical, to put it mildly. He knew a LOT of people and he made all of us laugh.
Most of all, Rob loved to be with his two daughters, Amy and Kasey. He was the ultimate “Fun Dad.” He taught them how to surf and ride bikes, took them on nature walks, and showed them how interesting the world around us can be when we look at it from different angles. He took them on trips to the outer banks of North Carolina and train rides to New York. He was just like one of the kids in the many delightfully chaotic playdates he “instigated” for Amy and Kasey with their cousins and friends.
Rob is predeceased by his parents Patrick Angello and Patricia Welsh Angello. He is survived by his two daughters, Amelia “Amy” Violet Angello and Kasey Elizabeth Angello of Princeton, NJ; sister Karen and her husband Robert Loehr, sister Judy and her husband Ron Lockwood, and brother David, all residing in West Long Branch; and ten nieces and nephews: Ryan, Nolan, Hannah, Shannon, Alexandra (“Ally”) and Daniel (“Danny”), Gillian, Owen, Tori and Mayu.

Eatontown Memorial Student is 10,000th Child to Benefit from Free Vision Screening by New Jersey’s Eatontown Lions Club
The Eatontown Lions Club began its sixth year of vision screening with a bang on Thursday, September 14, 2023. As a result of partnering with the Eatontown and Ocean Township School Districts the Lions club provided the 10,000th free vision screening.
On Thursday in recognition as the 10,000th screening recipient, Ashton Vassor, an eighth-grade student at Eatontown’s Memorial School, was given a citation and gift card from the Lions Club. Ashton has been screened annually by the Lions since second grade.
Also given a Lions Club Certificate was Memorial School Nurse Lucy Craig, one of the first Eatontown School District nurses to collaborate with the Lions when vision screening began in 2017. She was Ashton’s school nurse at Meadowbrook School when his vision was first screened.
Working in conjunction with school nurses, vision screenings are done annually by the Eatontown Lions in September and October for students in Pre-K through 8th grade.
“We really appreciate your help as well as the support of the Lions. Your work and partnership with us make a difference. The vision screening process as well as the resources the Lions provide to our students if a vision problem is discovered help our students to be in a better position to learn and succeed. Thank you.” said Scott T. McCue, Superintendent Eatontown Public Schools
More than 12 million school-age children in the United States have some form of vision problem. Many vision problems run the risk of becoming permanent if not corrected by the time the eye reaches full maturity. Vision also plays an important role in education. According to educational experts, 80 percent of learning is visual.
“Early screening leads to early detection, which helps ensure that children get the follow-up care they need,” said Club President Linda Butler. “We want to make sure that cor
