Part of old North Haledon, a recognized veteran and patriot, a faithful member of First Presbyterian Church with his wife, and always offering a smile and hello. A model for living the right life and embracing his family, who now rests in the arms of the Lord. With sympathy to the family.,

John and Susan Carbone
