Obituary

H. Lee Rochelle, Jr.
Born April 6, 1947
Died January 29, 2021

If you knew Lee Rochelle, you knew he was the most loyal, loving, and generous family man and “Coach” in the world. We are heartbroken to announce his passing. He was a tough guy for a lot of years, but two daughters and grandbabies later and he became the biggest teddy bear. Unbeknownst to most, he was an avid poet and he had lovingly penned a special poem for every grandchild. A natural athlete, he loved sharing tales from his time on the Neptune and Glassboro fields. He was always at the gym by 5am - which was just a warm-up to his 5 mile walk. Later in life, he took up swing dancing with his love, Diana. He said it was the hardest sport he ever learned. He claimed she always had to stay by his side because all the other ladies thought he was so handsome.

He was one of the most intelligent, well-read, and well-traveled people you have ever met. He loved creating photo books of his travels - most recently Alaska and Egypt. He also was a meticulous record keeper of everything from a list of every job he’s ever had (the worst was an asphalt worker) to every ingredient he put in his daily smoothie (no vegetables were found on the list). He was never late to anything - in fact, you could expect him to be an hour early. He often reminded his kids that by 9am, “the day is halfway over.” When his friends heard the news of his passing, they all said, “but he just called me this week.” He was always calling to check in (and he seemed to be friends with a lot of Bills). He also spent time on puzzles, genealogy, and happily receiving homemade soup or cookies from his girls.

He was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Alice, and his younger brother, Louie. He’s survived by the mother of his children, Madeline, his daughters, Stephanie (David) and Christine (Patrick), his son Sean, his beloved grandkids, his girlfriend Diana, his brothers Billy (Joyce), Mickey (Elaine), and many nieces and nephews.

Due to these unprecedented times, a memorial service will be held later this year. In lieu of flowers, you can make a donation to the American Heart Association or, which would have made a proud Pop Pop smile, you can donate to his granddaughter’s Girl Scouts troop (to support Jersey Shore Cares). He was her #1 cookie customer.
We are proud to have had him in our lives and will never forget him. Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

Lee was a really wonderful man. I enjoyed getting to know him as he became part of the family when Christine married my nephew Patrick. He always had a smile on his face and he made you feel so comfortable in his presence. It was easy to see how proud he was and how much he loved his friends and family. His grandchildren were his world! I enjoyed hearing stories he shared of traveling and dancing with Diana! He lived his life to the fullest. The loss of Lee is devastating and my heart breaks for his friends and family. Remember Lee and live your life to honor him. With heartfelt sympathy. Lauren Sherman
