Albert Citron


Albert Citron passed away on Feb. 29. He was a stellar role model to family and friends, a gentle, caring soul overflowing with love of God, nature, family, friends and all of his communities in which he participated.

He was born in 1943, and grew up in Paterson, N.J. He attended and graduated Rutgers University and University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He met his wife, Dale, while attending Penn. Upon graduating, he served in the United States Army as a captain. He was overwhelmingly proud of his tour of duty in Vietnam. After the service, he enrolled and completed a post-doctoral program in Endodontics at New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry.

He was the gold standard of how to lead a righteous, moral, peaceful, joyful life. He was always mindful of God’s gifts both large, like the birth of a grandchild, and small, like the tiny birds that swarmed his backyard bird feeder. May his memory be a blessing and a moral compass to those he leaves behind.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Dale, his three children, Renee (Neil) Baror, Wesley Citron (Karen) Citron, and Jordan Citron (Syndy), as well as grandchildren, Jonah, Eden, Levi, Taylor, Mia and Aria and a countless cadre of cousins, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
