Obituary for Robert De Chiara
Robert A. De Chiara, age 50 of Sayreville, passed away Thursday, January 11, 2018, at his home. Born in Jersey City, he had resided in Sayreville for most of his early life. He pursued his love of cooking in Orlando, Florida where he worked as a chef for Universal Studios for some time and later came back to his hometown of Sayreville, NJ. Rob was currently employed as an IT Support Analyst with Mphasis at Ericsson in Piscataway. He was Microsoft product certified and worked in IT services. Rob was a wonderful chef, and his family always looked forward to his delicious dishes, especially his eggplant parm and clam chowder. Another passion of his included his love of fishing and crabbing. You could always find him with a bucket full of crabs and a huge smile on his face. He was an avid NY Giants, NY Mets and NY Rangers fan. He was a member of the Nu Sigma Phi Fraternity with Kean University and remained very close with his brothers. Rob was a communicant of St. Bernadette’s RC Church in Parlin.
Surviving are his parents, Vincent and Virginia (Ginger) De Chiara, his brother Vinnie, his sister Gina Agnone and her husband Steve, his nieces Andrea and Jenna Agnone, his aunt Terri Bucci and many beloved cousins and friends who will miss him dearly. Rob was immensely family-oriented and had never missed his nieces dance recitals nor school plays. Rob truly had the biggest heart and was loved by so many.
