Obituary For Carmine C. 'Buddy' Balbo

Carmine Charles ‘Buddy’ Balbo, aged 91, of Galloway, passed away peacefully, Friday October 14, 2022. He was born on December 6th, 1930, in Jersey City, NJ to Leonard Balbo and Nicoletta ‘Nellie' Balbo, nee Murolo, who both pre-deceased him. He later lived in Plainfield, Wayne, Lakewood and finally Galloway, NJ. He was a loving father, devoted husband, lifelong friend, Army veteran, My Hero.

In his youth, he served in the US Army 1952 to 1954 during the Korean Conflict, serving in Camp Gordon, GA. Afterwards, he graduated from Newark College of Engineering in Newark, NJ with a BS in Electrical Engineering.

Buddy was an Electrical Engineer at Lockheed Electronics in Plainfield, NJ for most of his career, working in vital areas of the United States defense industry. He also had a passion for music and was a piano-player and professional musician until he was 85. Yet he always found time to work around the house, play with and support his children, and have an eternally happy marriage.

Our Dad joins our Mom, Catherine Mary Balbo who passed away 2 years ago this October, married in 1951 and together for more than 70 years, now together forever. He was pre-deceased by his sister, Kay Balbo Hodoske. They are survived by son, Steven Leonard Balbo and daughter, Patricia Anne Balbo (William Bugzy Boyer), as well as many nephews, nieces and cousins, and his caretaker, Judith Johnson.

A Viewing will be held 12PM to 2PM on Saturday October 22, 2022 at Parsels Funeral Home, 324 New Jersey Ave., Absecon, NJ. A service will follow immediately at 2PM. The entombment will be 12PM on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, at Ocean County Memorial Park in Tom's River, NJ. For condolences and information go to ParselsFH.com. We appreciate all of the support, friendship and empathy you have given our family in these difficult times. "Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand."

    Dear Steve, & Family, I only knew your Dad for a couple months. He was a pleasure to take care of. I'm sorry for your loss for you & your family. I know now nothing is a comfort right now, know in your hearts that he's in a better place w/your Mother. Dad is playing the piano & playing a song for your Mother. I'm sure they are very, very, happy to meet again. God bless all of you.

We Offer the Book of Memories™

Parsels Funeral Home offers what we consider to be the finest example of online memorials, the Book of Memories™. Created by an award-winning team of web developers and designers while being led by a funeral professional with over 25 years of experience, this online memorial is intended to provide your family with a permanent place to pay tribute to your loved one.

Far more than a traditional obituary—which is usually published only once and has no interactivity at all—the Book of Memories™ Memorial Website is a fully interactive archive of treasured photographs and stories remembered from their time spent with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

You’ll be able to invite others to visit the online memorial, where they can upload images, share stories, write heart-felt messages of condolence, send a floral tribute to the funeral, or make a charitable donation in memory of your loved one. And the built-in social media integration means they can then “spread the word” about their addition to your loved one’s Book of Memories™ using Facebook and Twitter.

We offer the families we serve a Book of Memories™ memorial website with the intention that it gives you a measure of solace and comfort during the coming months. To arrange for a Book of Memories® memorial website for your loved one, contact us today.
