Belleville Sons Honor Roll

 A Place of Honor and Remembrance In the Home of the Brave

Belleville, New Jersey


These young men of Belleville, New Jersey,
paid with their lives to prove "freedom is not free." 

Our intent is to honor their sacrifice and preserve
the memory of those Belleville sons who died in service to our country.


Let us in Belleville forget none of the 117 who died in World War II, the 21 who died in World War I, the five who died in the Korean War era, the 11 who died in Vietnam, the three who died in the Civil War, or the men who died in service during peace time.


Belleville to Rename Street

for Fallen Vietnam War Hero

The township of Belleville, N.J., honored John Hoar by renaming Cleveland Street at Dow Street as Pfc. John Hoar Way. Hoar was 20 years old when he was killed in action in Vietnam on Feb. 13, 1966. The public is invited to attend this ceremony to remember our Belleville son at noon on Saturday, February 13, 2015.

In September 2015, High Street at Van Houten Place was named in honor of Donald Saunders who was killed in Vietnam May 12, 1969.

In 2006, seven street names in the new residential development at Essex Park on Franklin Avenue were renamed to honor veterans and four of the Belleville heroes who died while in service. Streets were named for Raymond De Luca, Carmine Olivo, Clatie Cunningham Jr. and William Hamilton.
