Alfred "Buddy" Veltre, 93 of Whiting, formerly of Jersey City, Belmar, and Point Pleasant, passed away Sunday, January 20, 2019 at The Pines in Whiting, NJ.

Al served in the United States Army during WWII and continued his military career in the Army National Guard. He then served Major General Francis Gerard, becoming part of their family. He was a member of American Legion Post 346. In his spare time he enjoyed gardening and tended the vegetable garden at The Pines, especially attentive to his treasured tomatoes.

Al was predeceased by his son Sonny, wife Gwendolyn and his 4 brothers, John, Louis, William, and Frank. Surviving are his brother Anthony Veltre; granddaughter Jessica Veltre; Sister-in-law Janice Veltre; and several nieces and nephews to whom he lovingly referred to as "Butterballs." The family of Dr. Adriana Stolte-Gerard, friends at The Pines and friends in Florida, his home away from home, will also miss him dearly.

Visitation will be at Horizon Funeral and Cremation Services, 1329 Route 37 West, Toms River on Monday, Jan 28 from 11-1pm followed by a private service at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Cemetery.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made in his memory to The Pines-Memorial Garden 509 Route 530 Whiting, NJ 08759.

We always enjoyed spending time with Al when we would visit my father at the house in Florida, going out to dinner and playing games of “Memory” in the evenings. Al was a good person and dear and loyal friend to our family. Our sympathy to all his friends and family. Diana and Steve Lobertini

Daria Gerard and Michael Onorato on Jan 22, 2019

We live in the house in Florida where Al spent many winters. We permantly refer to his room as "Al's room". He was indeed part of the family. I can still remember riding in the car with my father and Al was always at the helm wearing a beret. He and my father had mutual brotherly love for each other. We regret not being able to make it up to NJ for the services but will remember Al as a kind man and with love. Our sincere condolences to all who will miss him dearly. Daria Gerard and Michael Onorato
