Earl H. Tindall Obituary
Tindall, Earl H.Earl H. Tindall, 80, of West Windsor, passed away at home on Thursday, June 12, 2014, surrounded by his loving family. Born in West Windsor, Mr. Tindall was a lifelong resident of New Jersey and, more recently, The Villages, Florida. He was a graduate of Princeton High School, Class of 1952, and proudly served as Class President. Mr. Tindall took over the 100-acre family dairy farm, while only a junior in high school, after his father died. In 1954, in addition to running the home farm business, he and his cousin, W.G. Dye, formed a partnership, rented 250 acres, and planted corn. With a brief span of growing and selling tomato crops to Campbell's Soup and Stokely canned goods, Earl continued to evolve his farming endeavors progressing into crops of wheat, barley, rye, and soybeans. In 1969, he purchased a local grain elevator and founded E.H. Tindall, Inc. where he ran a successful grain elevator operation. Mr. Tindall, along with his business partner, Steve Jany, developed Rustin Farms into one of the largest operations in the State of New Jersey, farming approximately 2000 acres. Some highlights of Earl's career include the production of high-protein soy beans and winning numerous awards for selling and distributing seeds and farm supplies. Earl was recognized by the New Jersey Farm and Garden as Star Farmer of the Month in May 1955 and proclaimed as being "on a threshold of a promising career" - a statement he lived up to. Many might have viewed that observation as a "masterpiece of understatement" in view of what he ultimately accomplished. Mr. Tindall was affiliated with many farming organizations throughout the State of New Jersey. Locally, he was an alumni of the Future Farmers of America (FFA), the Past President of the Mercer County Board of Agriculture, a member of the Mercer County Development Board, and the Farm Credit Advisory Board. Throughout the State of New Jersey, he served as Past Director of the New Jersey Farm Bureau, and was a member of both the NJ Soybean Board and the Grain and Forage Producers Association. He was a member of the Dutch Neck Presbyterian Church where he once served as a Deacon. He was a founding member of the West Windsor State Bank, a former member of the West Windsor Planning Board, and the Delaware Valley Businessman's Club. In his spare time, Mr. Tindall enjoyed golf, tennis, skiing, bowling and proudly served as horse show dad. He was also a member of the Robbinsville Bocci Club and the NY Yankee Club of the Villages in Florida. Predeceased by his parents, W. Russell and Ruth (Stelle) Tindall, his wife, Mildred C. (DiBenedetto) Tindall, and his sister, Frances McGovern Sodano; he is survived by his companion, Marie Adamo of West Windsor; five daughters and one son-in-law, Lynneva M. Zahn, Patricia Demas and Pamela Tindall, all of Princeton Junction, Cynthia Tindall Kairewich of Weatherly, PA and Lisa Tindall-Melchior and Steve Melchior of Princeton; his son, Kevin M.
