Robert Zale - Manager & Director, Lic. No. 3682

   Born and raised in Stratford, NJ of Halina and Eugene Zale, Bob is the middle child of three brothers who grew up in the family funeral home. Being born of a first generation funeral director Bob fondly remembers spending days working with his father watching how to care for loved ones that began his passion for helping families in times of need. Bob graduated from Mercer County Community College for Mortuary Science in 1983 and eventually purchased Middleton-Stroble & Zale Funeral Home on September 1st, 1986, where he resides with his wife Janice, married since 1983. Janice and Bob have raised four beautiful children Ryan, Bradley, Samantha, and Jeffrey in the funeral home following in his father's footsteps.
   As someone who has been in the funeral industry for his entire life, Bob is a pistol who fights for families to be able to have a fair, honest, and respectable final goodbye for their loved one. Knowing how important family connections are, Bob's ultimate goal for every person who walks into the funeral home is to feel like they are a part of his family. Living in Somers Point since 1986 Bob has left an impression on every person he has met from walking down the street to attending Sunday Service at St. Joseph Catholic Church. Bob is a loving family man who understands the importance of a final goodbye. Through compassion, Bob always makes sure that families know who he is, and they can feel safe knowing the love he has for what he does and he serves within his community.
