Robert Beckerle Obituary, Death – On Monday, November 14, 2022, Rob Beckerle, age 42, passed away. He was the husband of Amanda Beckerle, whose maiden name was LaForgia. Rob is survived by his devoted wife of seven years as well as their three children: Robert “RJ” (5), and their twins Joey and Julia (2). His children were the center of his universe, and he loved them more than anything else in the world.
Rob Beckerle was the only child of his loving mother Evelyn M. Beckerle and his late father Robert J. Beckerle, both of whom resided in Pearl River, New York. Rob was their only son. In addition, Rob is predeceased by his devoted sister-in-law, Kelly Ann LaForgia, as well as his adoring mother-in-law, Terry Ann Kunz. Terry’s mother, Mary Theresa Kunz, also survives Rob. Keith LaForgia, who was his father-in-law, passed away before he did. He is also survived by a large number of friends and family members who loved him very much and will miss him terribly.
Rob received his diplomas from St. Margaret’s School, which is located in Pearl River, New York, and Don Bosco Prep, which is located in Ramsey, New Jersey. He attended Manhattan College in New York and received a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering as well as a Master of Science degree in construction management. Rob was a member of the Green Mountain Racing School in Sugar Bush, Vermont, when he was younger. At that time, he was an avid downhill skier. Rob worked for Ferriera Construction as a construction superintendent in the Branchburg, New Jersey office.
Rob’s favorite way to spend time with his wife and three children was what he affectionately referred to as “Adventurous Sunday.” Rob enjoyed spending time with his family doing a variety of activities. They would spend the day going to many different places they had never been to before. Rob was also a big fan of the New York Jets and the New York Yankees. Prior to the couple’s decision to start a family, he was a coach for the North Arlington Junior Football League. Volunteering at Nightmare on River Road in New Milford was another one of his favorite things to do.
Rob was known to a large number of people for his quick and witty sense of humor, and he had the ability to make everyone laugh whenever he was in the room. He will be remembered for all time as a very selfless and caring individual who consistently put the needs of others before his own.
