It is with deep regret that we share the news that RCTB member Bob Royle of Brick has died. Over the last year or so, some of our membership provided Bob with rides to dialysis. Bob was a wonderful guy. He was always up beat even with all his health problems. We, like his family, will miss him greatly.
Quoting on behalf of his family:
“Bob loved the water, being out on his boats and fishing. He also loved to ski. He was a great cook and everyone loved his breakfasts and stories at the bed and breakfast. He was always willing to help someone out and will be greatly missed.”
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Popcorn Park Zoo, ReClam the Bay or the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.ryanfuneralhome.com. – See more info here.

We would like to have those who loved our dad, Harry Mower maintain the vitality of the bay he knew and loved for future generations, please donate to ReClam the Bay in his name and honor and celebrate his life on the water.
Born in 1950, Harry Mower Sr spent his entire life in the Barnegat Bay area. He was a lifelong fisherman and clammer at heart whose love of nature was matched only by his love for his family.
Growing up on Long Beach Island he spent his youth playing and exploring along the bay and ocean. As a young adult he earned a living fishing, clamming and diving in those same waters. Throughout his life he observed the different seasons and cycles of the bay and many changes to the environment. Through those observations he gained a deep understanding of, and respect for nature that he shared with his wife, two children and extended family and friends.
