Retired Raritan High School Teacher, Resident of Cliffwood Beach, Dead at 64

Richard J Tiritilli, a science teacher at Raritan High School in Hazlet for 33 years, died on Friday at Bayshore Hospital, according to APP. He was born in Paterson and moved to Cliffwood Beach 40 years ago. He retired from teaching in 2001.

I looked back in the census and found a Carmine Tiritilli who was born 15 Mar 1886 in Naples, Italy and died in Dec 1965 in Paterson. Immigration records show him arriving at New York aboard the SS Gioval on 7 Dec 1892 at the age of seven with Clementin Tiritilli, age 47, a domestic. He arrived again at New York at the age of eighteen on 28 Jan 1905 aboard the SS Konigin Luise. He claimed to be living in Paterson at the time. The 1930 Federal Census for New Jersey shows a Carmine and Ginevra Tiritilli enumerated in Paterson. They married in Italy about 1919. As of 1930, they had three children. Perhaps Richard is the child of their eldest son, Giulio, who was born in Italy about 1921?
