In memory of
Fred Buehner Retired Brick educator, 'cherished time with his family' Fred Buehner, age 82, of Brick, N.J., passed away on April 11, 2019. A memorial service will be held on May 13 at the River Rock restaurant in Brick between 5 and 8 p.m., to celebrate Fred's life. Born in Irvington, N.J., Fred grew up in Newark, N.J., and Kenilworth, N.J., before moving to Brick with his family over 50 years ago. After high school, he enlisted in the Army, serving two years in Korea. Upon returning, he went to Montclair State College where he received his bachelor's degree, was an outstanding basketball player, and met and married Carol (Kelly). Fred worked as a business teacher at Brick Township High School for many years until his retirement. Among his happiest memories were cherished times with his family (always No. 1 in his heart), bowling with the "Cream Puffs," the firehouse dances, Atlantic City gambling and buffets, his New York Giants and Penn State football teams, traveling (especially to California to see Christine), mowing the lawn and gardening, and spending winters in Bradenton, Fla., and summers at the Jersey Shore and boardwalk. His very special passion was golf, playing with his family and friends. Fred is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Carol; his cherished children: son, Craig and his wife, Kim; daughter, Christine and her fiance, Fred; granddaughter, Amanda; grandson, Eric; sister, Carolyn Storz; sister-in-law, Ruby, and many nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. The family will always hold dear the many laughs he shared and his unconditional love. Fred was predeceased by his parents, Rose (Woesner) and Alfred Buehner; brother, John; brother-in-law, Norman Storz, and his beloved dog, Jasmine. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson's Foundation. The family especially wants to thank the staff at Shorrock Gardens Care Center and Holistic Hospice for the care given to Fred, and the many friends and family for their love and support.
