Obituary

Dateline Bordentown

Richard “Rich” C. De Luca, 71, of Bordentown, NJ passed away on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, with his loving family by his side. Born in Pittston, PA, he moved to Lawrenceville at 9 years of age, graduated Notre Dame High School, attended MCCC, and served in the Marine Corps Reserves.

Rich was predeceased by his parents Americus “Mac” and Margaret (Nardone) De Luca, in-laws Joseph Callahan, Sr. and Arlene (Davis) Callahan, and two special sisters-in-law Patricia Craver and Nancy Innocenzi. Mac and Margaret De Luca owned the well-known Trent Diner in Lawrenceville and Rich was a young entrepreneur himself, who continued to run multiple successful businesses. He owned and operated RJ’s Liquors & Lounge in Trenton for 30+ years. After a brief retirement, where he enjoyed time with his grandchildren, Rich and his wife opened The UPS Store in Bordentown in 2008.

Along with being a trusted businessman, he was a 40-year member and is the current Exalted Ruler of the Elks 2085 Lodge in Bordentown. He was inducted into the Trenton Softball Hall of Fame, with a long involvement that spanned 32 years, sponsoring teams in the Mercer County area and was considered one of the top sponsors over three decades. Rich was a member of the Burlington County Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary of Bordentown. His favorite pastimes included long days on the golf course, fishing, being the Captain of Champagne Lady, and anything involving the shore, a boat, and a Scotch.

A beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, uncle and a special friend to so many, Rich is survived by his wife of 39 years, Barbara Callahan De Luca, his three daughters and three sons-in-law, Marla and Gregory Curran of Swedesboro, NJ, Megan and Brian Malloy of Yardville, NJ, and Darlene and Jason Campbell of Bordentown, NJ; six beloved grandchildren, Caitlin and Ashlin Curran, Joseph and Emma Malloy, Everly and Grayson Campbell; his sister JoAnn and husband Robert Peoples of Atlanta, GA, his brother John and wife Lynnette DeLuca of Excelsior, MN, brother- and sisters-in-law Joseph Callahan, Joan Butterworth, Janet Callahan, Penny Bruthers,Cindy Baughman and many beloved nieces and nephews.
