Freeholder Gerald M. Thornton on behalf of the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders recognized former Surrogate Robert W. Hentges on his passing.
“I have known Bob Hentges for many years. It was an honor to work with him during his 42 years in County government. He was much more than just the long time surrogate of Cape May County, he was a great friend to many people and organizations in Cape May County.
He was well known around the State and was the longest-serving surrogate in New Jersey. He worked diligently at the state and local levels to make changes to better serve New Jersey residents.
He served this Country and I am proud to have known him. I send my deepest condolences to his family and friends.”
