Obituary for James Carlomusto

James  Carlomusto
James Andrew Carlomusto, 24, of Union Beach, tragically lost his life in an automobile accident on Thursday, January 25th. James was born on July 3rd, 1993 in Red Bank and grew up in Keyport. He was a graduate of Keyport High School and the Marine Mechanics Institute of Orlando, Florida and was employed by Schrader Yacht Sales, where he was beloved.

Practically from birth James was an avid fisherman, loving the ocean and the beach. He came into the world tapping a tune, drumming toy buckets with spoons until there were holes through them. His talent blossomed, and he became a talented musician, playing the drums and guitar. He performed in many bands and loved all different types of music. James had special, unique bonds with each person in his life. He never ended a conversation or missed an opportunity to tell you that he loved you and would be first to tell you how much he appreciated the people in his life.

James met the love of his life Chelsey in high school, and they went on to marry and have two beautiful daughters, Madison Brittany Lin and Dakota Kathleen. His mission and passion in life was to take care of his family, which he did flawlessly. James was the true definition of a family man, mature and responsible beyond his years. The brightest parts of his day were taking Madison to the park with their dog Beary Boy after work and sitting on the floor playing with Dakota (his little Gobby) and her baby dolls. James was a ray of sunshine in everyone’s lives. He always had a smile on his face that would light up a room. He will be missed more than words can express.

James also leaves behind broken-hearted parents Elizabeth Graham and Joseph Carlomusto and their supportive spouses Alexis and Vanessa; grandparents whom he adored, Kevin and Cathy Graham and Mary Ann Carlomusto (Norman); Uncle and godfather Keith Graham (Vy); Uncle Brian Graham (Julia); Aunt and godmother Marieann Barrett (Michael); brothers Justin, Tyler, Brayden, Joseph, Jonathan and Elias; and sister Olivia. Also surviving are James’ loving in-laws John and Karen Thomson and Lisa Burbank; sisters Sarah and Hannah; brothers Corey and Jay; and niece Kaeleigh. There is an extended family of those who James loved that included friends who were like brothers, cousins, and the entire community that knew and loved him.

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time
-Green Day
