Alfred F. Peruzzi, 81, of Howell Township passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 29, 2022 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune. Al was born in Manhattan, raised in West New York and had lived in the Stuyvesant Town section of New York City before moving to Howell in 1967. He was the owner of Consumer Response & P.W. Research, NYC and Secaucus for thirty years until his retirement. Al was devout parishioner of the Church of St. Veronica, Howell as well as a member of the Retired Active Men group or RAM for short. He excelled in the kitchen and had a thrill for travel. Along with his wife, they have traveled through Europe, China, and Mexico. Yet with his family, they explored the eastern seaboard, from Canada to Florida, by motorhome. But nothing compared to his passion for fishing, from party boats, to streams or ponds. If Al could, he would fish a puddle.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Maureene; four children, Christopher Peruzzi and his wife, Sharon O’Brien of Freehold; Alicia Peruzzi of Howell, Michele Lynch of Manasquan, and Laura Lucarelle and her husband, Christopher of Wilbraham, Massachusetts; nine grandchildren, Brittany, James, Sara, Olivia, Michaela, Ryan, Jack, Anna, and Owen.
