He came to us from Pingry. At Princeton, Judge majored in aeronautical engineering, joined Cloister, and was active in the Student Christian Association. He roomed in 1879 Hall with L. Cobb, D. Weeder, G. Denniston, W. White, P. Elliman, F. Kloman, and A. McKinney.
Judge had an Air Force ROTC scholarship at Princeton; he served honorably for three years in the Air Force in Germany and continued to serve in the Air Force Reserve. After 20 years of service to his country, he retired as a lieutenant colonel. He had a successful career as a Pan Am pilot, traveling around the world to many exotic places.
Judge and his wife, Jenifer — owners of Pennington Hardware from 1977 to 1995, a well-known landmark in the town center — were fixtures of the Pennington, N.J., community. In addition to providing advice to homeowners and contractors about their hardware needs, Judge supported numerous programs and activities serving the youth of Hopewell Valley. Pennington Hardware sponsored soccer and baseball teams for many years. One of his many joys was playing Santa Claus during the annual Pennington Holiday Walk.
Judge is survived by his wife of 58 years, Jenifer; son Houston and his wife, Maggie, and their children Christopher, Devon, and Jessica; son Michael; and daughter Teri and her husband, Brian Kennedy.
