William B. Carmody

William B. Carmody, 76, of Neptune, NJ, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 10, 2016, at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune. Bill was born and raised in Queens, N.Y. He received his bachelor's degree from St. Francis College in Brooklyn and his M.B.A. from Seton Hall. He moved to New Jersey, eventually buying a home in the Shark River Hills section of Neptune, where he raised his family. He served his country in the United States Army from 1963 to 1965. In civilian life, Bill again served his country, working for the Department of Defense at Fort Monmouth for thirty-five years and retiring in 2000. He enjoyed woodworking and traveling with his wife. He had a passion for aviation, flying both powered planes and his true love, gliders. For many years Bill served as treasurer and as a CFI-G for the Central Jersey Soaring Club (CJSC), and he could always be found on a summer weekend at the airport. Bill gave his time and energy unstintingly to the CJSC, and is fondly remembered by many former members. But more than anything else, Bill loved his wife of forty-eight years, and his children and grandchildren. He was quiet, but his feelings ran deep and strong. Bill was both a gentleman and a gentle man.

Bill was predeceased by his brother, P.J. Carmody, and a brother-in-law, John Harrington. He is survived by his wife, Una; two children, Dennis Carmody and his wife, Debra, of Freehold Township and Eileen Shaklee and her husband, Richard, of Wall; three grandchildren, Will, Carolyn and George; a brother-in-law, Brendan Harrington and his wife, Maryanne, of Holmdel; his siblings, Brendan Carmody and Helen Plante; and many nieces and nephews.

Memorial contributions in Bill's name may be made to the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, 3300 Route 66, Neptune NJ 07753, or www.foodbankmoc.org.
