Joseph Nagy Jr.

June 7, 1953January 13, 2021

On January 13, 2021, our beloved Joseph Nagy, Jr. passed away after a brief illness. Joe was born in Passaic, NJ in 1953 and was raised in South Toms River. He was predeceased by his father, Joseph Sr., mother Josephine, sister Katherine, and brother Leonard. He proudly served as a volunteer member of the Toms River Fire Company, Station No. 1. Joe worked for 43 years as a Store Readiness Manager for the 7-11 Corporation before his retirement in 2019. During those years, he really enjoyed meeting and working with many franchise owners and operators and was known for his hard work and dependability. He was completely dedicated to his children, and never missed a game or event important to their lives. Joe was a favorite among his children’s friends, who could always count on “Mr. Nags” to bake up his famous peanut butter cupcakes, or whip up some chocolate chip pancakes for the kids. He was honored to be a member of the James Volpe Foundation and never missed an opportunity to volunteer at the Wiffleball fundraiser event.

Joe was devoted to, and is survived by his wife Robin, sister Millie Burghorn, brother Samuel Nagy, loving children Jennifer Seagle, Joseph Nagy & wife Tiffany, and son Jake Nagy. Joe was the cherished Grandpa and Grampy to his wonderful grandchildren, Anthony and Aiden Seagle, and Nico and Gracia Nagy. Joe will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law and dear friends and will always be remembered as the sweetest, kindest man imaginable. He leaves a legacy of love to all.

I worked with Joe for many years with a third party company that 711 hired for store set up. He became a mentor and close friend. I will forever remember and miss the times we shared. Joe and Robin attended my husband Andrew and I’s wedding August of 2018. That’s how much we loved Joe. He watched us grow and working along side him was one of the best learning experiences of our lives. We will forever miss his kindness and passion for his work. We love you old friend ❤️ Until we meet again

I will never forget that day, over 10 years ago, when I first met Joe at the 7-11 training center in Bloomfield, NJ. He walked up to me with his briefcase in hand and that warm reassuring smile and greeting, which I soon learned was his signature way. Joe had a way of making everyone feel at ease thru his concern for the wellbeing of others and his commitment to working hard and helping everyone. In all my years at 7-11 I never came across anyone else more devoted and more committed to helping others than Joe. I can’t tell you how many times I would show up on a project wondering: how in the world am I ever going to get this done? and I would turn around to find Joe; briefcase in hand and that same reassuring smile he showed me when we first met. “hey, I had a feeling you could use a hand; where should we get started?” But, that was Joe. Selfless, kind, caring and loyal. During our down time he spoke highly of all his kids; he was so proud of them. Joe was a real family man and also often spoke fondly of Robin and I got the sense she was his rock, and his life. Joe, I will miss you dear friend. May you live on in the lives of those you so deeply touched.

I don’t even know where to start; this man, who I proudly called dad, was one of the greats! I absolutely loved being around him, every chance I got! My daughters loved him like a grandfather, because that was how he treated us, like family. I am heartbroken, and will think about him daily. I feel blessed to have had him in my life and will forever be grateful for that. I love you “dad” thank you for always being there for me and the girls and for treating us like we were your own.

My grandfather was such an amazing person!! He used do everything with us! Every time we went with him he wound always take us places and spend a lot of time with us! He used to make me laugh almost every time he spoke because everything he said he made it into a joke! If it was a memory, or advice, he always made everything around him and me happy and exciting! My grandfather was an amazing man not just to this family, but to his community! He will be greatly missed and loved!! I love you grandpa! Imma make you proud

I worked with Joe for 14 years and always considered him not just a coworker but a friend. We shared a lot of good times. Over the years and miles, we lost track of each other, something I now regret.

Joe was a hard worker, always willing to anything for his franchisees and loved 7-Eleven to the core. He was taken away from us far too soon, and will be missed. Prayers and condolences to his children and his family.
