Richard James Frese, age 59 of Highland Lakes, passed away on Monday, June 17th, 2019 at Newton Medical Center.

Born in New York, NY to the late William and Joan (Gleason) Frese, Richard lived in Bergen County before settling in Vernon in 1986.

An account executive with Ennis, Rich was very well respected at work, where he will be remembered for his competitive spirit and his willingness to help anyone in need. Rich loved music (especially music played by BTBS), good food and he truly enjoyed cooking for his family and friends. Rich’s smile and sense of humor are treasures that will be forever remembered by all who met him. His greatest joy was time spent with his family. He was often heard saying that he had the “greatest life.”

Predeceased by his parents, and a brother, William Frese, Rich is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Patti (Alacci) Frese; his triplets, Chris, Billy, and Andrea Frese, all of Highland Lakes; a brother, David and his wife Scher, of Waldwick,; and two nephews.

A memorial visitation for Rich will be held on Wednesday, June 26th, 2019 from 2-4PM at the Ferguson—Vernon Funeral Home, 241 Route 94, (One Vanderhoof Court for GPS) Vernon, NJ 07462. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital,

Rich always treated myself and all of the friend group like his own. I will never forget all the fun times and memories we shared at the Frese’s Christmas parties and just from hanging out with Andrea. He was a strong and hard working man and loved by all.

Rich was an amazing, genuine, kind hearted person. He really was always there for me. I always gave him a big hug hello and goodbye when we would run into each other at G's. He always knew the best places to get dinner. He will be deeply missed by Jeremy and I. I have you all in my thoughts and prayers each day.
