Barbara “Bobbie” Holbrook Miltenberger, 86, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 13th. She was surrounded by her loving family at her home in Fair Haven. Bobbie was a lifelong resident of the Two River area. She attended Rumson Country Day School and Nightingale Bamford in NYC. She then attended Westover Preparatory School in Middlebury, CT and later graduated from Briarcliff Jr. College in Briarcliff, NY. She was member of All Saints and St. George’s Episcopal Church, a lifelong member of Sea Bright Beach Club and a proud member of Daughters of the Cincinnati.

Andrew W. Thompson (“Drew”) passed away on Friday, January 12, at Monmouth Medical Center. He was 60 years young. Drew was everything and more that you wanted in a husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. He was a Free Mason, Ducks Unlimited member, Seabright Lawn Tennis and Cricket Club member, and participated in the National Foreign Trade Council.

Growing-up in Fair Haven, he found peace, comfort, and happiness by the ocean, in the wetlands, and at any venue that combined Tim McLoone’s music with a little bit of trouble. He stood proudly next to teammates on the Rumson Fair Haven gridiron gang, as well as tennis and gymnastics teams. With his high level of expertise, you never wanted to go after him on the trampoline or diving board. He had a passion for the untracked trail; this found him taking his dog to the fields for a hunting trip or a horse to the mountains for a camping expedition. Whether in the mountains or in the kitchen, you could count on a 5-star gourmet meal and good company. When it came time to celebrate the holidays, family and friends requested Drew as “the carver”.

Michael Czarnecki, 74 of Brick, formerly of Atlantic Highlands and Highlands, passed away suddenly on January 5, 2018.  He retired from Honeywell in 2000 and thoroughly enjoyed every day of his retirement.  Most mornings he could be found on the tennis court and most afternoons he would be at the dog park with his four-legged buddy.   

He was a loving husband and an amazing father who would do anything he could for his family.  One of his favorite traditions was making pierogies for the family for the holidays.  He tried to teach his children and grandchildren the secret family recipe but so far none has taken on the challenge.
