welcome

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of George A. Yetka Jr., age 63. He died suddenly at home, in Holmdel, NJ, on February 8, 2021. George grew up in Middletown, NJ in a family of eleven. He graduated from Middletown North in 1975, then attended Kean College. George worked for his father’s mechanical contracting business, The George A Yetka Corporation. Eventually George started his own business.

George had many hobbies. He was a certified scuba diver and also earned a pilot’s license. He enjoyed motorcycle riding, woodworking, and photography. None of these compared to the joy he received from being “Poppy!” He loved his family more than anything.

George was preceded in death by his father George A Yetka Sr., his brothers Greg and Wayne, and his nephew Jason Bucks. He is survived by his wife of 40 years Debbie Jo Yetka; His children: George Yetka III (Alicia), Meghan Fiorentino (Rich), Michael (Julianne), John (Kassandra); grandchildren: Julia, Mia, Savannah, Charlotte, Samantha, Lily, Jake, and Emily; mother Dolores; siblings: Susan Bucks (Tom), Cheryl Hieber, Scott Yetka (Nancy), Lisa Schultheis (Steve), Jennifer Herdeen (Michael), and Christine Yetka. He is also survived by his 18 nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be Friday 2/12/21 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St., Red Bank, NJ. In keeping with the current state mandates regarding COVID-19, face coverings must be worn by all visitors before entering the funeral home and visitors are also asked to observe social distancing.  Visitors are asked to greet the family and then exit the funeral home so that others may also visit due to the limited, allowable capacity. Following a private service, family and friends are welcome to attend George’s committal service on Saturday 2/13/21 at 11 am at Fair View Cemetery, 456 NJ-35, Red Bank, N.J. A celebration of life service will be held at his church at a later date. Donations may be made to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Red Bank, NJ.
