Robert K. Schuster, 1932 to 2022.

Bob died on Saturday, March 5, in Rumson, NJ. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, he attended the University of Wisconsin and served in the Air Force. At all three venues he was a renown pitcher who threw many no hitters. His curve balls are probably the reason for his slice and dice tennis shots later in life.

He had an extraordinary bond with his four children who treasured his even temper, lack of drama and acceptance of others. He guided them with a gentle hand. Bob was non-judgmental and lived his life without guile or pretense.

A perfect day for him was playing singles tennis with his best friend Stephen or Patrick, followed by an iced tea and then a few laps at the pool. Darn good for 89 years!

Frederick P. Century passed away peacefully after a short illness on February 25, 2022, surrounded by close friends. He was born May 29, 1929 in New York City, the son of Sam and Mary (Walkover) Century.

Fred completed his Bachelor’s Degree from Rutgers University and worked for many years as a social worker for the Township of Middletown School District. He took great pride in his endeavors to help those families in need. He served his country as a tank commander in the US Army Reserves. He was a voracious reader and was also a past trustee of the Middletown Library.

He was a great lover of animals and had a menagerie of pets spanning his lifetime. He enjoyed traveling the world and loved to regale his friends with tales of his adventures. His beloved Cobble Close Farm was his home for nearly seventy years.

Her tennis accolades are too numerous to mention but her name covers many plaques on the club walls, starting from the Girls’ Championship to Club Champion. In her final years, although not playing anymore, there was nothing she enjoyed more than to watch from the porch, The Prentiss/Seabright Cups as well as the junior players participating in her lifelong passion.

It is with extreme regret and sorrow that the Sanchez family announce the passing of their beloved patriarch, “Pop”.

Pedro was truly loved by anyone and everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. His sweet smile could ease the saddest of sorrows, his contagious laugh would fill a room with joy. He was a joker since birth, and continued being a jokester up until his last day. From magic tricks to pranks, he always wanted to make everyone laugh. Pedro’s generosity and loyalty were unmatched; he was truly an exceptional man. He was famous for worrying if everyone ate, and even if you already did, he was always so convincing that you needed more! His sheer selflessness was so admirable; he would never turn a blind eye to those in need. Whether they be family, friends, strangers- Pedro simply wanted to be of service. He did great deeds just to do some good in the world, never expecting anything in return. That should be a lesson to everyone: be good for the sake of being good.
