James F. Hintze, a lifelong resident of the Monroe-Woodbury area, passed away Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018, at Orange Regional Medical Center in the Town of Wallkill. He was 83 years old.

Hintze and his wife Stacy, Michael A. Hintze and his companion Julie Kaffenberger, Kevin L. Hintze and his wife Charlene and Christine J. O’Brien and her husband Keith.
“PopPop” was the proud grandfather of Shayna, Mackenzie, Dylan, Victoria, Scott, Amanda, Megan, Courtney, Madison, Ava and Kenny, and the great-grandfather of Olivia. He also is survived by his nieces and nephews.
A Chapel Service was held Jan. 9 in Smith, Seaman & Quackenbush, Inc. Funeral Home, officiated by the Rev. Joseph Tyrrell.
