Patrick R. Tobia, 95 of Manasquan passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at his home.
Patrick was predeceased in 2018 by his loving wife Ann (nee Mammolite) of almost 70 years, his siblings Anna, Margaret, Carmella, Ella, Genevieve, Geraldine, Pamela, Angel and Larry. He is survived by his beloved children: Patricia Polizzano and her husband Dan of W. Orange, NJ, Barbara Armstrong and her husband Tim McElhatton of Milwaukee, WI, Peter Tobia and his wife Pat of Basking Ridge, NJ, Joe Tobia and his wife Francine of Spring Lake, NJ and Maria Gallucci and her husband Tom of Ocean City, NJ. Patrick was the cherished grandfather of Joe Jr, Matt, Nicole, Chris, Daniel, Alexandra, Morgan, Jacqueline, Nicholas and Rosina and great grandfather to Will. He is also survived by a sister-in-law Faye Tobia of W. Orange and was predeceased by Ann’s sister Vincenza “Vee” and two brothers Michael and Donald.

Patrick was born and raised in Newark, NJ. He attended high school in Newark and left early to serve in the United States Navy during World War II. After his service (1943-1946) he returned to Newark and pursued the love of his life Ann Mammolite. They married in May 1948 and started their family. They lived most of their lives in W. Orange. Patrick and his family summered in Manasquan moving there permanently in 1998. He was the owner and operator of Snow-White Laundries for over 30 years. After his retirement he became a golf ranger and the unofficial “Mayor” of Bel-Aire Golf Course, in Wall. Patrick was a very active member of the Manasquan VFW Post 1838 and past Grand Marshall of the Manasquan Memorial Parade in 2015. Along with many of his fellow WWII veterans, he was interviewed by the NJ Militia Museum about his service. You may watch the video by going to

Patrick and Ann enjoyed spending their later years wintering and golfing in Myrtle Beach with their friends. Pat had a deep love for the ocean and was often seen fearlessly riding his scooter to the beach and around town. He was a self-professed water bug, teaching his children and grandchildren to love and respect the ocean. His storytelling kept whatever audience he could find entertained and created many happy memories preparing his legendary breakfasts!

My family has been truly blessed to have known Pat Tobia. My son Quincy met Pat during his sophomore year at MHS and began reading to him on a weekly basis. Each time he would return home he shared stories of Pat's life, his amazing family, and his love for his wife and his country. Quincy loved to visit him and I believe Pat was one reason that Quincy began his journey to be accepted into the Naval Academy. As it turned out, he was scooped up by the Airforce Academy and could not have been prouder. Of course Pat was the first one he called to share the news. Pat was so happy for him that he came to the acceptance ceremony conducted in Senator Menedez's office in Newark, NJ. It was a very special moment for the two of them. As Quincy headed off to USAFA, I was lucky enough to meet Pat and share a few afternoons listening to him share many memories of his life and I would fill him in on Quincy's life in the academy. He will be sorely missed. Our entire family sends their condolences and yet I know he is finally home with his wife. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all and thank you for letting us be part of his life.

To Pat's children and all of his family,
Pat was my dear and special friend for over six decades and a friend to my parents for even longer than that. My friendship with Pat grew even closer as he became homebound and we shared frequent and wonderful phone calls. We laughed, we reminisced, we talked about our children, family members, friends, deceased and alive, and most of all we always recognized how blessed we were to still share our special friendship. He was wise, warm, caring, and of course, always a little devilish! We had our last conversation only the day before he died and I am so blessed and happy that I was able to share those wonderful last minutes with him, unaware that it would be my last time hearing his voice. I will miss him so deeply. He touched everyone he met, spoke from his heart, spoke his mind, and always generously shared the love in his heart. He will always have a special little piece of my heart which I will carry with me. Rest in peace dear friend and be happy now that your prayers have been answered and you are finally together again with the love of your life, Anne. My heartfelt love to his family and thank you for sharing him with me all these years. My life has been all the richer for it.

Love always,
Anita VItali
