Obituary for Joseph Richard Mayer

Joseph Richard Mayer passed away on May 7, 2019. He was born on May 10, 1941 in Philadelphia and was predeceased by his parents, Joseph T. and Marie (Frieling) Mayer and his sister, Marie Mayer. He is survived by his two sons, Joseph Jr. and Michael; grandchildren, Timothy, Andrew, Michael, Jr., Melissa and his great grandchildren, Michala and Caleb. Joe also helped raise his two step children, John Romero and Jennifer Shreiner, and will be missed by his step grandchildren, JD Romero, Thomas and Coulson Shreiner.

Joe worked many years for Aydin Controls as a foreman and later worked in Various Nursing Homes as Director of Housekeeping. He retired to Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey in 2005 from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Joe enjoyed cooking, gardening and fishing. He found his true happiness when he moved to the shore and joined The Anglers Club of Absecon Island. He served many years there fishing, of course, and helping with maintenance and restoration projects. He was on the Board of Directors and loved the “Pier.” There he made lifelong friends especially Edward Haehl, who helped Joe through his lengthy illness. Joe was also a member of the Silvers Club at his church, Saint Katharine Drexel and spent many hours donating his time to their mission fundraising projects.

I am truly sorry for the loss of your love one. Did you know that your love one has a chance to come back to a paradise right here on earth. Did you know that when Jesus was on the torture stake the man next to Jesus said please remember me in paradise and Jesus said to this man truly I say to you this day you will be with me in paradise. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see your love one once again. I do truly cannot wait to see my love one ‘s once again . I would really like it if you could stop by one of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness and anyone there would be very happy to tell you anything about the paradise and the resurrection. And I am truly sorry for the loss of your loved one .
