Robert J. Machrone Plumber and Korean War vet, 78 of Cranford passed away on Dec. 29, 2007, at home. Interment was Jan 3rd 2008 at Fairview Cemetery, Westfield. Son of the late Sam and Rose (Veltre) Machrone, he was born and raised in Kenilworth, Mr. Machrone moved to Cranford 43 years ago. He was a plumber for Volco Brass and Copper Works, Kenilworth, for 35 years. After that, he was a custodian for both Jonathan Dayton High School, Springfield, and David Brearley High School, Kenilworth, for 10 years. Mr. Machrone was an Army veteran of the Korean War. He worked very hard to support his family so mom could rear the children. He sometimes worked 3 jobs, and did all the construction work around the house in his off time. Surviving are his wife of 54 years, Hilde; a son, Robert Joseph Machrone and his wife, Patricia; two daughters, Beverly Machrone and companion Tom Oleszkowicz, and Karin and Sal DiPiazza (married June 17th 2009); one brother, Samuel Machrone; two sisters, Rose Bauer and Betty Machrone; also survived by seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren (#2 born 2010), many cousins, nieces and nephews. Brother of the late Dorthy Machrone and Florence Materia (passed 2010).

I have listed his name as J. Robert Machrone and Robert J. Machrone because he was always called Bob, Rob, or Robert and few knew his first name was actually Joseph.
