NEWTON - Jeffrey M. Daly, 67, of Newton, got in the TARDIS on June 17, 2013, and has left for places and times unknown.
Born in Rahway and raised in Clark, Mr. Daly graduated from Rutgers College and Rutgers Graduate School of Social Work. He was employed by the County of Sussex, Division of Social Services/Welfare, from 1969 to 2007, retiring as county director. Growing older, but never deciding on what he wanted to do when he "grew up," Mr. Daly had also worked part-time as a radio news announcer "rock jock" and as an Isshinryu karate instructor.
Surviving is the rest of humanity, including his father, Raymond Daly, of Newton and Toms River; his wife of 45 years, Marion Lee (Jurman), whom he met in 1964 when he had the good sense to take Latin classes on the then all-female Douglass College campus. Two sons also survive him: Michael (MIT '94 EE) and wife, Corinne, of Trout Lake, Washington, who got out of New Jersey and now has reasonable property taxes, no state income tax, and legal marijuana; Drew (Richard Stockton '01 ES) and wife, Michelle, of Hopatcong; plus three grandchildren: Nadija, Katya and Anders. Surviving siblings are Brian Daly, of Westfield, and Jill Jacobus, of Bluffton, S.C., and several nieces and nephews.
