Frederick L. DiMuccio Sr.  

October 11, 1929 - December 30, 2023

Florham Park, New Jersey - Fred DiMuccio passed away peacefully on December 30, 2023.  Fred, affectionately known as Mr D, was a long-time resident of Florham Park, where he had lived for the past 60 years.  

Born in Summit New Jersey on October 11, 1929, he was the son of Frank and Rose DiMuccio.  He was the last surviving of nine children.

Fred graduated from Summit High School in Summit, New Jersey. Fred was drafted in 1951 and spent 18 months in active duty in the Army Infantry during the Korean war. He graduated from Montclair State Teacher’s College in Montclair, New Jersey and then went on to earn two master’s degrees.

Fred worked for over 40 yeas as an Industrial Arts teacher at New Providence High School in New Providence, New Jersey.  He happily shared his craftsmanship skills with family and friends in need of assistance and his patient teaching skills were always on display. For 18 years Fred spent his summers as the manager of the New Providence Community Pool.  All of his children have fond childhood memories there.

On November 20, 1954, Fred married Angela Chiaravallo in Millburn, N.J Fred and Angela were proud and devoted parents of three children: Lorraine DiMuccio (John), Fred DiMuccio, Jr (Kathy) and Elizabeth Rabian (Brian).   Fred was preceded in death by his beloved wife Angela in 1988. Fred saw his family grow to include six grandchildren: Sarah Johnson (Jeremy), Maria DiMuccio, Ross Kuehl (Rachael), Kelly DiMuccio (JT), Janice Rabian,  Garrett Rabian (Gwen) and two great grandchildren: Lirael and Isla Johnson. Fred also leaves behind Winnie Schurek, his life partner of 10 years.  

It was evident to all that Fred valued family above all else and he loved his family with all his heart.  He shared his unconditional love with all in his presence.  Family gatherings were full of warmth, good food, singing, and lots of laughter.  Fred especially enjoyed annual trips to Vermont with family to see the fall foliage.  He made more than 60 trips there in his lifetime.  He was a traveler, a voracious reader and learner, and a lover of music and babies.  His love of life was always on display.  He lived his life to the fullest and will be greatly missed!
