Richard George Holst, 71 of Barnegat passed away on June 29, 2019 at Southern Ocean Medical Center, Manahawkin with his family by his side. Richard was born in Newark and raised in Brick, NJ. He was a graduate of Brick High School in 1966. While in high school Richard became interested in HAM radios and was a lifetime member of the ARRL. Richard was a navy veteran of the Vietnam War and served aboard the USS Nautilus along with his two brothers for about 6 months before being stationed on the USS Whale. After his military service Richard began his 40 year career with AT&T, starting as a radio technician and retiring as a Systems Manager. Richard married his wife Cynthia A Applegate on June 24, 1972. Richard sang in barbershop choruses for over 44 years. He sang for the Oceanaires, Barnegat Bay Tone and the Atlantic City Boardwalk Chorus as well as two quartets On Key and the Sound Magic. Richard was a 15 year member of the Durand Masonic Lodge #179, Point Pleasant. He was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason by his son. Richard enjoyed gardening and yard work and was very proud of his woodworking abilities to make the gavels for many members of the lodge.

Richard was predeceased by his parents George and Irma Holst; a brother George W. Holst; a sister Carol A Fredett. He is survived by his devoted wife of 47 years Cynthia Holst of Barnegat; his loving son and daughter-in-law Richard William Holst and his wife Stacy of Freehold; his loving daughter and son-in-law Melissa Marie Grispart and her husband Gregory of Manahawkin.

My memory of Dick will always be that of a committed and determined member of the Oceanaires Barbershop Chorus who NEVER let his personal mobility challenges interfere with his happiness in being a gifted bass "barbershopper". May he enjoy the peace that is his now and forever.
