AGE: 91 •

Herbert Richard Andlauer, 91, peacefully passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2017 while residing at Merry Heart Assisted Living facility in Succasunna, New Jersey.

Born, January 30, 1926 in Newark, New Jersey to Frederick Charles and Anna Marie (Lowenberg) Andlauer, he was the third of 4 four children; his brothers, Frederick and Edgar, and sister Lois Albertine are predeceased. Raised in Newark, he graduated from Central High School. He then entered the Navy serving 1944 through 1946 operating in the Pacific, receiving the American Theatre Medal, Victory Medal and Asiatic Pacific Medal. Once discharged, he continued his education at Montclair State Teachers College obtaining his Bachelors and his Masters from that institution. He went on to receive his Doctorate in Education from Rutgers University.

Herb's accomplished educational career began in Norwood, NJ school district as a grade school teacher. He then continued for 36 years in the Livingston, NJ school system as Principal of Collins Elementary School. He entered the Livingston Schools Administration System; first as the Director of Curriculum, and finally rising to the position of Assistant Superintendent. Near his retirement he returned to being Principal; he always loved being around people and, especially, talking to and learning from children.

Herb was a long time active member of NEA, NJEA, NJREA, ECEA, ECREA and OCREA. He served as president of Essex County Educational Assn and later, the Essex County Retired Educators Assn. where he also served for many years as Treasurer. Herb also served on the NJEA Affiliations Committee, chaired the state NJREA Affiliations Committee and as a Regional Coordinator of NJREA Government Relations Committee. Upon retiring in 1992 he became very active in the Ocean County Retired Educators Assn, serving for many years as Vice President and also as its Member Benefits Chair.

His influence on the educational community has been far reaching. He was a genuine advocate for children, free public education and vehement supporter of educators. From teacher to Acting Superintendent of Livingston School District, to instructor at Keane University, Herb has educated and inspired many members of the education profession.

Upon his retirement, he and his wife Lois moved to Toms River, NJ where he enjoyed gardening, woodworking, cooking, and extensive travel. He was able to visit many countries throughout the world with his wife while in the company of the NJEA "Travel Group" where his love for different foods and the great company were some of the highlights of his retirement. He kept up with all of these activities well through his 80s, much to the dismay, at times, of his family.

Herb's love of life and his sense of humor continued to the end of his 91 years of life. His final endeavor, the donation of his remains to the Robert Wood Johnson University of Medicine and Dentistry, speaks to his interminable belief in the importance of education.

He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Lois; daughter, Elizabeth (Beth) Giaimo of Piscataway and son and daughter-in- law, Fred and Cindi Andlauer of Succasunna; Grandchildren Michael, Denise and Nicholas Giaimo; Gregory and Kristin Andlauer; his niece Margaret (Peg) Wadell and many other nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by son, Theodore (Ted) Andlauer.
