Edward J. Heindel, 72, passed away quietly at his home on the morning of Sunday September 3, 2017. Mr. Heindel was born in Jersey City, NJ and resided in Helmetta, NJ until 1979, when he made Monroe Township, NJ his permanent home. He was a graduate of Jamesburg High School and attended Rutgers College. Mr. Heindel was a carpenter with local 1006 Milltown and served as Tax Assessor for Jamesburg and Helmetta for over 30 years, until his retirement.
