Robert Angione – June 9, 2020

Robert Angione, 68, of North Haledon, NJ, passed away on June 9, 2020.

Born to Ralph and Antoinette Angione on March 19, 1952, Robert grew up in Weehawken loving to play sports and was an avid fan of the Yankees and Giants. Through his life, Robert was able to share his love of sports with his daughters as a coach for their softball teams and was known to enjoy rounds of golf when time allowed. In his work, Robert sought to be a steward of our world by running his own business in environmental remediation and later brought his energy to Hillmann Consulting as a consultant. Additionally, Robert enjoyed giving of his time to be a town councilman in Emerson, NJ for six years.

Robert led a life built on the foundation of his faith and hope in Jesus Christ. Actively serving his community as an elder at Montvale Evangelical Free Church, Robert also found a spiritual home with Hawthorne Gospel Church. In these spaces he celebrated and prayed with voice and music, especially as he enjoyed playing his guitar. Robert’s favorite Bible verse came from the Book of Lamentations (3:22-23), “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Moved by faith and music, Robert also had a special place in his heart for Haiti and its people after spending time there on a mission trip and supporting the Hope Haitian Choir.

Robert’s memory will be honored by his beloved wife, Arlene Angione, his dear daughters, Courtney Dyksen and husband Jeff, Meredith Kohlbrenner and husband Ken, and his cherished grandchildren Levi, Elise, Silas, Vienna, and Hope.


The family invites those wishing to commemorate Robert to a visitation on Friday, June 12th from 3:00 – 5:00 PM in North Haledon. Attendees may drive past the house and remain in their cars as the family will be hosting from the front lawn.

  1. With a heavy… saddened heart I express my sincere condolences to Robert’s wife Arlene and to his daughters and their families. Robert was wonderful in all aspects …. and a godly steadfast brother in the Lord. I will miss him.
    With deepest sympathy!

  2. My heart is saddened to lose Bob, for me, but especially for Arlene, “Meredif,” Courtney and his beloved grandchildren. But I REJOICE he is in Heaven, imagining he and Jay arguing over what “proper” music is! Bob, with his “off” sense of humor, always put a smile on our faces, AFTER he had teased us in some way. He has always been a good friend to us. Bob’s faith is authentic and, along with Arlene and the girls, a wonderful example of someone who served the Lord well, in everything he did! ❤️

  3. I am in shock about hearing of the death of Bob! But I just heard a phrase that said… “ death is not dying”….. he is more alive now than ever…. in Heaven, in the presence of his Lord and Saviour, whom he loved. We’ll miss you, Bob. We had some great memories at Northeastern Collegiate Bible Institute (1970-1972) and at Camp of the Woods!!!!! Love, Carol(Nelson) and Jim Rumsey

  4. Bobby I will miss you so much, but I’m comforted to know you are home with the Lord. You were always there for me and for my children over the years. If there was any problem you went out of your way to help. Arlene, Courtney, Jeff, Meredith, Kenny and children our hearts and prayers are with you. We look forward to the day we will be together again.

  5. As the sister of Robert Angione, I am shocked to learn of the passing of my brother, Bob.
    I am deeply saddened and distraught no one informed me my brother may have been quite ill and, possibly, may not be on this earth too much longer.
    It’s comforting and reassuring to know, however, I will see him again in Heaven.
    John 11:25-26
    My deepest condolences and sympathies.

  6. What really can be said in times like these when that which is known “reluctantly” happens? If it can be so, heaven has become more appealing with Bobbie’s arrival there. The Revelation 7 picture has become even more intense with presence of the new participant. It’s a comfort to understand that what Bob did not know here has become clearly known to him there. Furthermore, what is this divine jealousy that rises up within our souls as believers in Christ now that he has what the rest of us have only read about? And for those of us who remain? Arlene we pray the God of all comfort upon you – for only your God can be ever present with you to console and meet you in the shadow of sorrow. May He help you use precious memories from the past to override the potential pain of the present. Our prayer is that His strength will be your full portion and the awareness of His continual glorious presence with you will help to offset the absence of your earthly life partner. Our prayers to you too Courtney and Jeff, and Meredith and Kenny and the children. We love you! Let us know if there is anything we can do beyond prayer.

  7. All the Jensen’s morn with the family of God on the passing of our brother. We are deeply saddened to hear this news and we wish to convey our most heartfelt condolences to Arlene and the family.
    “When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be”. Until that day comes!

  8. He will be greatly missed as a Godly man. Loved serving with him on Elderboard at Montvale Evangelical Free church. Don Woodside.

  9. We cannot find the words to express our shock, sadness and disappointment in learning of Booby’s sudden home going. He served the Lord with joy and with all his being, for that we rejoice in knowing where he is. We are so sorry for the hurt you are all experiencing, and trust our Savior to walk beside you and comfort you. Please know you are all loved.

  10. I am so sorry to hear about Bobby. My condolences to his wife and family. We have been friends for many years and you will truly be missed. Rest In Peace My Friend.

  11. So sorry to hear about Bob’s passing!! My sympathies are with all of you!! Praying for God’s comfort and peace to surround you all in the days and months ahead! Treasure your memories!!

  12. My deepest and sincerest condolences go out to the Angione family. May you be surrounded by God’s faithfulness, comfort and love. May His abiding presence sustain you.
