Stanley J. Molinaro

Stanley J. Molinaro, 98, of Dumont, NJ, passed away on Thursday, July 8, 2021. Stan was predeceased by his beloved wife Laura (nee Amorosso) and cherished grandson James George and six brothers and sisters. Devoted father of Victoria Neville and husband Thomas, Rosemarie “Molly” Lyon and husband Randy and Angela George and husband Mason. Proud and loving grandfather of Timothy Neville (Stephanie), Nicholas Riehl (Shermaine) and Christopher Riehl (Astrid). Adored great-grandfather of Timothy, Tyler, Asher, Matteo and Catalina.

Stan was a proud US Army Veteran of WWII.  He retired from PSE&G as a supervising foreman and then worked over 20 years at Pizzi Funeral Home in many capacities. He was a life member of the Dumont Volunteer Fire Department Hose Company 3 and belonged to the Knights of Columbus St. John’s Council #1345.

“Stan the Man”, as he was affectionately known, always put family first and was so proud of his three girls and their families!  A loyal friend, he was a true Mr. Fix-it and was always quick to lend a hand. He had a passion for ’65 Mustang convertibles enjoyed cruising around town. Stan loved a good party and could always be seen on the dance floor doing a mean twist or a polka! At a family or town BBQ he would be cooking up the biggest pot of hot dogs and corn.

Stan was loved by all who met him and he will be missed by many!

Visiting hours are Monday 4-8 PM at Pizzi Funeral Home, 120 Paris Ave, Northvale (201-767-3050). A Funeral Service will be held Tuesday at 11 AM at the funeral home with interment to follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Hackensack. 

In lieu of flowers, a donation in his name to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society or the Dumont Fire Co. #3 would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Vickie, Tom and family,
    How blessed you are that your dad has been in your life so many years and he was certainly blessed to have you. Yes, you are going to miss him but he has left behind a wealth of happy memories so that there will always be smiles mixed with the tears. Lou and I send our prayers that God will comfort you and allow you to celebrate his life rather than mourn his death.
    Our love,
    Dianne and Lou
