Frank J. Lineberry was a retired administrator from the Middletown Board of Education.  He was a resident of Neptune, NJ.  He passed away on April 22, 2021 at his winter residence in Boynton Beach, Fl. 

He was born in Newark, NJ on May 20, 1947.  Son of Frank and Catherine Lineberry.  He grew up in Shark River Hills, Neptune.

He was a graduate from Kean University (formerly Newark State College), earning a bachelor’s degree in early education and later his Master’s Degree in Education Administration.  While at Kean, he was a varsity baseball player, class officer, Brother, and officer of Sigma Beta Tau fraternity.  He was known by his brothers and others as a great person, liked and loved by all. 

Frank dedicated his life to education and spent most of his career in Middletown.  He began as a sixth-grade teacher at Fairview Elementary School, and then was a principal at River Plaza, Nutswamp, and Thorne Middle School.

The last 10 years of his career were spent as a clinical supervisor mentoring future educators from Kean and Georgian Court Universities where he observed student teachers in several NJ school districts.  A post that brought him much joy and happiness.  However, his greatest treasure in life was his family.

Frank loved skiing with his wife Sydney and their yearly trips to Cape Cod.  He also enjoyed fishing, golfing, umpiring, going to the beach, and being outside.  But most of all he loved watching his grandchildren be them, whether it was playing in the band, dancing on stage, singing and acting in a play, hitting baseballs, shooting hoops or catching lacrosse balls, Pop was always there cheering them on. 

When Frank spoke, everyone listened.  He could captivate an audience with his quick wit and charm.  He had a twinkle in his eye and his smile could light up a room.   Everybody that knew him was thankful to be a part of his life.

He is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Sydney Lineberry, his daughter Erin & husband Brian Kennedy, his son Jamy & wife Bethany Lineberry, his stepchildren Scott Atkins, and Chris & Sandi Atkins.  His 6 grandchildren Connor, Alyssa, Brandon, Liam, Ella, & Maddy; as well as his sister Nancy & Mike Hoey, and nephew John Rosinsky.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Frank’s memory to The Make a Wish Foundation would be greatly appreciated by his family.

Theodore M. Newcomer Sr. 


It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather Theodore Martin Newcomer Sr.  Theodore was born on August 25th, 1949 in Fitkin Hospital, Neptune NJ.  He grew up in Neptune with his five siblings, where he graduated from Neptune High School, he attended the Missouri University of Science & Technology, in Rolla MO.  He resided and raised his family in Bradley Beach, NJ where he lived for forty-five years.  Ted was a Master Electrician and a Master HVACR Licensee, where he learned the electrical trade from his father Abram, who was also a Master Electrician Licensee.  Ted, in his earlier years, was a skilled painter and creator of custom hand painted signs, where he usually was found on weekends at flea markets and craft shows throughout NJ.  In recent years, Ted was a Licensed Real Estate Agent with the State of NJ, at Patrick Parker Realty.  He was an avid fisherman, from surf casting to long runs out to the canyon with his buddies fishing for tuna and mako shark.  Ted was well known for an unparalleled sense of humor for any occasion, in any environment and usually at an inappropriate time, along with a relentless and endearing sarcasm of “busting people’s chops” that found its way into many conversations with his most beloved family, friends, and associates.  He is also known as Ted, Teddy, Uncle Ted, Dad and most importantly Pop Pop to 4 of his most cherished and adored individuals, his grandchildren.  He was a collector of many great artifacts, possibly the lost parts of the Dead Seas Scrolls, tools, and still brand-new office supplies, enough to stock the Empire State Building for a month, that he had a hard time letting go of through the years.


He passed away on Wednesday April 21st, 2021 at Jersey Shore Medical Center with his immediate family at his side.   He was preceded in death by his parents Abram D. Newcomer & Doris A. Newcomer, a brother James M. Newcomer, and his in-laws Walter C. Rummel and Janet R. Rummel.  Theodore is survived by his loving wife and caretaker of 49 years, Cathi H. Newcomer, his beloved children, his daughter Tara M. Buckley, his son Theodore M. Newcomer Jr., along with his beloved and cherished grandchildren, Ashley J. Trottier, Lily P. Newcomer, Alex R. Buckley, Kodiak M. Newcomer, his son-in-law Ryan M. Buckley and his daughter-in-law Kristen A. Newcomer. His siblings, A. Dave Newcomer, Ronald A. Newcomer, Patricia A. Rusca, and Carol A. Albanesi.  He is also survived by a large extended family of nieces, nephews, and cousins who he loved dearly.
