Wantage - Brian S. Kardos, Jr., age 16, unexpectedly passed away due to a tragic accident while working on Friday, March 12, 2021 in Wantage. Born on April 3, 2004 in Newton, Brian attended Sussex-Wantage schools, then the Sussex County Charter School for Technology and was currently a Junior at Sussex County Technical School in the diesel program. Brian was an active member of the Sussex Tech Archery Club, the North Jersey Antique Engine and Machine Club and had raised money by shaving his head in solidarity for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for 9 years, having reached the level of “Knight of the Bald Table.” His greatest love and absolute favorite past time was tractor pulling his John Deere 112. Brian enjoyed tinkering with his tractor and trying to find new ways to achieve the “full pull.” He also loved hunting, fishing, camping, farming, watching the Green Bay Packers and going to work. He was an extremely hard worker with an outstanding work ethic. Brian had a huge heart and was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who crossed his path. He was loved by all and has certainly left a hand print on everyone’s heart with his good nature, laughter and cheerfulness. Brian was a friend to all, was a listening ear to many and had an enormous infectious smile. He is survived by his mother, Sherri Cameron and her husband Chris of Wantage; his father, Brian S. Kardos, Sr. and his wife Melanie of Wantage; his sisters, Baylee and Chessa Kardos of Wantage; his maternal grandparents, William and Georgina Brown of Milford, PA; his paternal grandparents, Sharon and John Kardos of Wantage; his step grandparents, Michael and Linda Iaconetti of Ridgefield Park; his step great- grandfather, Eugene Iaconetti of Ridgefield Park; countless aunts, uncles, and cousins; his loving dogs, Spencer, Penny and Biggie; and his cat, Callie. Friends may pay their respects to the family on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Pinkel Funeral Home, 31 Bank Street (Route 23), Sussex. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday at the funeral home. Interment will immediately follow at Clove Cemetery with a repast at the Sussex Fire Department after the burial.
