Gustav C. Hintz, born December 06, 1926, in Romeiken, East Prussia, died peacefully in Port St. Lucie, Florida, April 10, 2021, with his daughter Karen Klutsarits, by his side. He was predeceased by his wife, Helen Farley Hintz, his parents, Alexander and Bertha Hintz, his sister, Hedy Sutton and brother, Otto Hintz. He emigrated to the United States of America, on the “S.S. Majestic” in April 1929 with his mother, sister and brother, to join his father in New York, USA.

He graduated from Bernards High School, Bernardsville, N.J. in 1941. He worked at Hamilton Farm Creamery while attending high school.

In 1944 – 1945, he worked as a mechanic for Raritan Valley Farms, Somerville, N.J. and Hill Chevrolet, Gladstone, N.J. From 1946 – 1952, he worked for Wortman Mills, Pottersville, N.J.. In 1953, he worked for Ross Farm, (hay business), Califon, N.J. and in 1954 he purchased Ross Farm. In 1962 he worked part time as a relief driver for Welsh Farms Creamery, Long Valley, N.J. and also as a part time Special Police Officer, road supervisor, dog catcher and welfare director in Califon, N.J.. He also joined the volunteer Califon Fire Company and became a Life member.

In 1964 he started a new police department in Califon, N.J. and became the Police Chief. In 1969 he left Califon to form a new police department in Lebanon Township, N.J. and was the Police Chief until 1981, when he retired. In 1984 he moved to Florida.

He belonged to many clubs and associations in New Jersey and in Florida. To mention a few: the Treasure Coast Genealogical Society, The St. Lucie River Chapter DAR and SAR, a Life member of the German American Club and a Life member of the New Jersey State Police Chiefs Association, a Life member of the International Police Association of Stuart, FL. and the Port St. Lucie Elks Association, #2658.

His hobbies and passion included dancing up a storm with his wife until he had holes in his socks, hunting, racing his stock car in New Jersey: Flemington, Heightstown, Morristown and also Nazareth, PA. and when he retired from racing he enjoyed watching NASCAR races.”(#18)”. He also enjoyed riding bicycles, fishing, surf fishing, boating and bird watching. He taught himself how to play many musical instruments, accordion, piano, organ and trumpet, to name a few and entertained everyone at our family gatherings. His passion for police work never stopped even after retirement and he always watched “Blue Bloods”. He was also known as “Mr. Fix it”. If he couldn’t fix it, it couldn’t be fixed, but never thrown out because he might be able to use those parts to fix something else. (he always had super glue in his pocket, just in case).

He leaves behind his daughters, Susan Berg, FL., Karen Klutsarits, FL., Helen Beth Lautenbach, VA., and his son, Gustav C. Hintz Jr.,(Carl), N.J., 9 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

Services will be held in Florida and New Jersey.

We are so sorry for the loss of Gus to all of the family. Our family got to know our 2nd cousins when Ruth was only 14 and her family visited New Jersey. In 1997 when we started spending winters in Florida we enjoyed getting to know the Gus Hintz family even better. Gus was a person of strength and someone who was always willing to help. When we wanted to wash the screen in the lanai we just had to ask Gus and he knew which solution to use. There were many visits and telephone calls with Gus & Helen. In 2019 Gus made the drive over for dinner to where we were in Willoughby Cay. We will miss him. The family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Gus was a long time member of the International Police Association and a dear friend. He will be sorely missed at our meetings. The members of IPA Region 26 of the United States Section will keep him and his family in their thoughts and prayers. May God rest his soul and comfort his family. Gus as brothers and sisters in law enforcement we will all walk the beat together again in God's Heaven. Rest in peace my friend.

Dear Hintz family,

We are sorry for your loss. We have so many fond memories of your Dad and Mom. They were a great team. They welcomed us in their home, time and again. We were in Florida for hurricane Wilma and your parents offered their help with whatever they could. After the storm, your Dad drove his jeep onto the yard, and helped us right a 30 foot palm tree. We will miss all the Pinochle games. We pray God's comfort over you.

Erhard and Beverley
