Harry Kegelman Death – On Wednesday, January 11, 2023, Henry Joseph Kegelman, a lifelong resident of Rumson and a graduate of Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) passed away. He was 40 years old at the time of his death. He was described as a young man who made everyone around him laugh and grin. The one who made every day a little bit brighter. A fantastic father, brother, friend, son, and husband.
Who was Harry Kegelman?
The son of Harry and Nancy Kegelman was Henry Joseph Kegelman V, also known as “Harry Joe.” He was Nancy and Paul’s brother. Little Silver was his initial residence, followed by Rumson. He went to Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, Forrestdale School, and Deane-Porter Elementary School. On the “H” bus from Rumson Road, there was a sweet young lady with red hair who would eventually realize how amiable and entertaining Harry was.
During his high school years, Harry was an EMT, participated in soccer, ran track, threw the javelin, and acted as a lifeguard at Seven Presidents Park. Following RFH, he continued his education at Muhlenberg College while continuing his track and field accomplishments, which included taking first place in the decathlon at the Centennial Conference Championships. He ended up starting his professional career at Lukoil thanks to his decathlon triumph, the first of several lucrative positions in the oil freight sector.
Fireworks on the Navesink Harry and the sweet redhead from the Rumson Road bus would cross paths again during one of those busy summers. The happiest day of those times was June 7, 2014, when he married Casey Shanley, his lifelong partner, and best friend. On the Upper East Side of New York City, the newlyweds lived life to the fullest before taking a delightful detour south due to Harry’s job, where they were welcomed by Hank Henry Joseph Kegelman VI. They relocated to Houston for a while before going back to Rumson.
