Obituary of Richard Kraft

Richard W. Kraft, 66, of West Milford, passed away on October 8, 2018.  

Born in Newark, Richard was the son of the late William and Corinne Kraft.  An avid car collector and enthusiast, his extensive knowledge and attention to detail led to a successful career in auto sales. Opinionated, passionate, filled with humor, a bit rough around the edges but with a huge heart— he was truly one of a kind. Richard’s family was everything to him, he was an amazing husband, father, and friend. 

Richard is survived by his wife, Cynthia (nee Christoff); his daughters, Tiffany Kraft-Romeo and her husband Matthew, and Jacquelyn Kraft; and his best friend, Frank Lauro.

Visiting hours will be held from 4 to 8 pm Thursday at the M. John Scanlan Funeral Home, Pompton Plains.  A funeral Mass will be held 11 am Friday at Our Lady of the Magnificat RC Chapel, Kinnelon. 

Flowers or donations in Richard's memory to the Newark PBA, West Milford PBA, or your local animal shelter would be greatly appreciated by his family.
