Rumson is in mourning for a longtime resident and public servant whom many credit for making the borough what it is today.
Fourth-generation Rumsonite and former Borough Administrator Gary Sammon passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, Aug. 2, surrounded by loving family that cared for him over the last year. He was 77.
News of the July 18 death of former Rumson police chief and longtime Rumsonite Robert T. “RT” Hoffman prompted a flood of fond messages of condolence, remembrance and respect from locals and colleagues. He was 76.
The living may not be quite so easy this summer, but there has been some freedom from pandemic quarantine to ease those isolation blues. And when there’s a chance to enjoy a sunny summer day by the river, all Rumson-Fair Haven area folks tend to flock right to it.
