Obituary

D. Richard “Dick” Barba, 92, of Brick, NJ, transitioned to eternal life at Ocean Medical Center, Brick on June 4, 2020, after a long, valiant battle against COVID-19. Born on March 29, 1928, he grew up in Maplewood, NJ, where he was an all-star football player at Columbia High School. He went on to attend Carteret Prep then to Georgetown University on a football scholarship. His brilliant football career was cut short by severe knee injuries. He returned to Maplewood and coached football at his high school alma mater and--most significantly--met and married his lifelong partner, Cecilia “Cee Cee” Nardone. He enjoyed a distinguished career in life insurance, specializing in pension plan design first with Prudential then New England Life. He and Cee Cee built a home in East Brunswick, NJ, then relocated to Bay Head, NJ, in 1979. He had been a daily communicant at St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ, and a parishioner at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Bay Head, NJ, where he lent his magnificent tenor voice to the choir. An annual highlight for him was a solo of “Panis Angelicus” during the Easter season which he performed as recently as just a few years ago. Social events at Manasquan River Golf Club and Bay Head Yacht Club were favorite activities as was daily breakfast at Ray’s Café in Sea Girt, NJ with his buddies. He and Cee Cee have been “roomates” at the Complete Care at Laurelton nursing home in Brick for the past three years, where Cee Cee still resides.

Dick was predeceased by his courageous and heroic older brother, Corp. Vincent J. Barba, who gave his life in service to our beloved country in 1945, during World War II; and his parents Domenico “Daniel” Barba, an Italian immigrant, and Ida (Edith) Barba. He is survived by his eternal love and wife of 63 years, Cecilia; his son Vincenzo “Vinnie” and his wife Valerie; grandchildren Antonella, Vincenzo and his wife Tracie, Sofia, and Giovanna; and great-grandchildren, Lila and Winnie. There is nothing he enjoyed more than being surrounded by those he loved and he always made sure they knew just how much he loved them.
