Nathan Hindes passed away peacefully on June 21, 2022. He was 100 years old.
Born and raised in South River, the son of William and Rose Hindes, Nathan lived a full and accomplished life. After graduating from South River High school, Nathan attended Rutgers University.

After working briefly as a Ceramic Engineer, he joined his father’s business, the South River Waist and Dress Company. He ran the business for 37 years.
Nathan enjoyed traveling, playing tennis, talking about politics, and the world. He treasured the moments he spent with his family, especially when everyone gathered together at his vacation home in Vermont. He was one of the kindest and most generous people and he made every effort to get to know anyone whose path he crossed. His energy, vigor, and kindness were on display each and every day.
