With a heavy heart we pass along condolences to Carmine Fernandez on the loss of his wife, Laura, earlier this month. Carmine and Laura, North Arlington residents, have been fixtures at River Barge Park and Marina in Carlstadt since the facility opened in 2012, and before that at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. Carmine continues to carry on the tradition, albeit with a heavy heart.
The couple could be seen at the park nearly everyday, seated on lawn chairs outside their purple PT Cruiser. On their own time, and from a pure love for the park and people, they always had a friendly hello for parkgoers, answered people’s questions and made everyone feel welcome.
Our thoughts are with Carmine, and Laura will always be remembered.
