In Memoriam - Vincent Ingato, Assistant Scoutmaster

Posted by admin on Feb 14 2018 - 10:51pm

 Longtime Troop 1 Assistant Scoutmaster Vincent Ingato passed away this past Monday February 12.

In addition to his commitment as a leader, Mr. Ingato was a three time Eagle Scout Dad (Steven '73, Vincent '73 and Robert '75), a fact that he was extremely proud of.
The Ingatos lived on Central Avenue across from Notre Dame Church and they supported Scouting in North Caldwell for many years by buying popcorn from Jeremiah as a Cub Scout. I also knew Vince from his time as an Usher at Notre Dame as well. He and his late wife Mary were very nice people.
There is a photo of Mr. Ingato in our Website Now and Then Section at the Court of Honor for son Robert.
Obituary from the Star Ledger follows
Vincent Ingato, 88, of West Caldwell, N.J., passed away peacefully at his home in Cranes Mill, N.J., on Feb. 12, 2018.
A viewing will be held at Paul Ippolito-Dancy Memorial, 9 Smull Ave., Caldwell, N.J., on Thursday, Feb. 15, from 4 to 8 p.m. A funeral service will be conducted at the funeral home on Friday, Feb. 16, at 10:30 a.m., followed by interment at Prospect Hill Cemetery in Caldwell. For directions or to send the family condolences, visit ippolitofuneralhomes.com.
Born in Newark, N.J., on May 6, 1929, Vincent lived in the Caldwells for over 50 years. He was a veteran of the Korean War, where he served for three years with distinction in the U.S. Navy onboard the U.S.S. Missouri. The discipline and patriotism he learned in the military never left him.
Following his service in the Navy, Vincent attended Newark College of Engineering (now NJIT) where he earned his B.S. in electrical engineering in 1956 and M.S. in electrical engineering in 1962. He was an electrical and systems engineer for Curtiss-Wright, ITT, RFL Electronics, and finally Quindar Electronics in Springfield, N.J. before his retirement.
Vincent was always available to help family, friends, and the community, whether coaching little league baseball, volunteering at Notre Dame Church, in North Caldwell, serving as an assistant scout master for the Boy Scouts, or working at a soup kitchen in Newark, N.J., caring for the less fortunate.
He is survived by three children, Steven of Toms River, N.J., Vinnie of West Windsor, N.J., and Robert of Mendham, N.J. He also leaves his daughters-in-law, Cheryl Ingato, Lisa Pappa, and Anna Ingato. Vincent was the loving grandfather of 10 grandchildren and is also survived by his brother, John Ingato, and sister, Marilyn Owens, and many nieces and nephews.
Vincent was preceded in death by the love of his life, his wife of 60 years, Mary (Romano).
In lieu of flowers, donations to  St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Pl., Memphis, Tenn. 38105, would be appreciated.
