Obituary for Bartolomio "Dan" Salerno

Dan Salerno passed away, surrounded by family, on July 3, 2019, at the age of 82. A devoted husband, loving father, and proud grandfather (and great-grandfather),

Dan was born on July 10, 1936 in Raritan, NJ, the youngest child of Angelo and Antoinette Salerno. He attended Somerville High School and went on to serve proudly in the US Marines Corp during the Korean War. On returning home, he married Barbara Hickman of Somerville, NJ, and the couple moved to Flagtown, NJ, where they raised a family. Upon retirement, Dan and Barb relocated to Wildwood Crest, NJ, where they spent many happy years, hosting family and friends each summer.

Dan’s focus in life was family. He was not only a dedicated father but a tireless volunteer for Hillsborough sports and youth organizations. He brought strength, warmth, and integrity to everything he did, and his kind heart and generous spirit will be dearly missed.

Dan leaves behind his wife of 62 years, Barbara; his daughter Teri (McGrath) and son-in-law, Alan; son John and daughter-in-law, Cheryl (Sivilich); son Richard and daughter-in-law Kelly (Sheerer); son Michael and daughter-in-law Amanda (Banks); and son Daniel and daughter-in-law Karen (Hoffmann). He also leaves behind 12 grandchildren—Molly, Sean, Katie, Richie, Stephanie, Ryan, Nicky, Joey, Emma, Jack, Jaime, and Abby—and one great-grandchild, Sean.

A funeral service will be held at 10am on Friday, July 12, in the Hillsborough Funeral Home, 796 Us Hwy 206, Hillsborough, NJ 08844. Entombment will follow at St. Bernard’s Cemetery, Bridgewater, NJ. Visiting for relatives and friends will be held on Thursday, July 11, from 4 – 7pm in the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, Dan’s family asks that you make a donation to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
