Roxbury Township, Mr. Fred Pisorchik, Jr., 86, died on June 21, 2024 at his home with his family surrounding him. He was born in Newton, NJ and moved to Landing, NJ in 1968. He served in the U S Army from 1960 – 1966. He then worked as a butcher for Ronetco Shop-Rite for many years and retired in January 2005. He was a member of The First Presbyterian Church of Succasunna.

Fred was blessed with many nieces and nephews from both families and many extended family and friends, too numerous to mention.

He graduated from Roxbury High School in 1957 after enjoying the great sports of Track, Football and Wrestling.  Based on his love of his sports background in High School, Fred and his dear friend, Bill Babus went to every sports event imaginable within the surrounding area of Roxbury.  As such, they were awarded the “Friend of the Gaels 2012-2013” for the support of athletic programs.

Georganne & Family were incredibly blessed and grateful for Fred’s (two girlfriends) Nurse, Helen Primavera and Aide, Anita Jainarine.   The care and support from these two women was compassionate, devout and steadfast.
