Robert J. Burgo 83 of Lincroft, N.J. passed away peacefully on Monday September 16, 2019 at his home with his family by his side. Robert was born on June 11, 1936 in Staten Island, New York. He grew up in Grasmere, and attended New Dorp High School. After graduating from high school, he enlisted in the United States Army where he completed his tour of duty Honorably Discharged. Robert married his beloved wife Lillian in 1963 and they settled in Great Kills where they raised their family. While being in Staten Island he was very active in St. Clare’s Parish. Robert was a NYC Firefighter. In 1985 the family decided to move to Lincroft, New Jersey, and once again he was an active member of St. Catharine’s Parish in Holmdel, as well as Healing Shepard Charismatic Prayer group at Holy Cross Church Rumson NJ of which they were active members for 30 years.

He is also survived by his loving brother Gerard and his wife Joan Burgo.
