James Michael Vaubel, 68, of Lincroft died Aug. 18 at his home surrounded by his family.
He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana to the late James Edward and Elizabeth Louise Vaubel.

He was an avid fisher, taking charter boats with his friends or surf fishing at the Shore. He enjoyed spending time at Tom’s Tavern in Farmingdale. Mike was a genuinely nice guy. He was above all a family man and loved his wife, children and grandchildren deeply.
