Recommended Posts

Richard H. Topham, 68, of Long Branch, died Friday, August 18th at Monmouth Medical Center.

Rich was born in Augusta, GA. He graduated from Methacton High School and spent time in Long Branch shortly after. He married the love of his life Arlene Topham who he met in California, and they went on to raise four children in his grandfather's home on Kingsley. For over 20 years he owned and operated Professional Sound Services, New York. He was known to help many professionals in the TV/Film world start their Sound career and service their equipment. He later retired in 2016, where he spent most of his time at the Poconos cabin, deep sea fishing in Mexico and tanning in Hawaii.

Rich enjoyed storytelling, skeet and trap shooting, gardening, fishing, reading and traveling the world. Most of all, he loved his wife and family, and was an adventurous father and grandfather. He will be sincerely missed by all who knew him.

Rich is predeceased by his late wife Arlene Topham; he is survived by his four loving children Lauren Malapit and her husband Earl of HI, Justine Groeger of Long Branch, Kathleen Topham of Brooklyn, and Richard Topham III and his wife Fallon of Hazlet; sisters Debbie Martel of CA and Ruthann Morrison and her husband Mike of TX; his brother Martin Topham of CA; and grandchildren Jack and Max Groeger, Anela Malapit, and Meryn Topham.
