September 23, 1944July 25, 2020

Stanfred Leo Baron passed away on Saturday, July 25, 2020. Born September 23, 1944 in Paterson NJ, he was the son of Beulah M. (Santee) and Rene R. Baron. After a youth spent in Passaic, he lived the next 45 years in Clifton before moving to Holiday City at Berkeley, Toms River in 2005.

Stan was a kind and loving man with a gentle, easy going nature. He worked for many years as a machinist in Paterson followed by 12 years in the dairy department at Shoprite in Manchester.

Stan was a devoted Catholic. He enjoyed singing and was a member of two church choirs for many years. He was also a great sports fan. His favorite teams were the Mets and the Giants. From early childhood on, Stan was fascinated with trains---from model trains to actually visiting many train museums as an adult. Stan's absolute favorite fruit was blueberries--- blueberry pie, blueberry cake, blueberry yogurt and jam--- and even blueberry beer!

Although predeceased by his sister, Celia (Baron) VanderGroef in 2006 and his brother George Baron in 2016, Stan is survived by his two sisters, Corene (Baron/Hunt) Garvey and Shirley (Baron) Koshgarian and her husband Stephen. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews to whom he was a loving and special uncle: Dawn VanderGroef, Denise (VanderGroef) Caruth, Leah Hunt, William Hunt, Stephen Koshgarian and Seth Koshgarian.

Stan will be missed by all and will live forever in our hearts and thoughts. His life will be celebrated in a private family gathering.

Stan was the sweetest, kindest, most lovable soul. To know him was to know the tenderness of Jesus. What a blessing his presence was to us at St Joseph Church. Sing the songs of Joy with the heavenly angels Stan. Rest eternally basking in the love of the Lord!
