Hughes, Joseph Patrick637 viewsJoseph Patrick Hughes Dies in Harrison, New Jersey

Baseball Fan, 82, Known as "Judge" was Native of Newark

Joseph Patrick Hughes died yesterday (January 23, 1941), at the home of a daughter, Mrs. William Donnelly of 46 Washington Street, Harrison, with whom he lived.

Mr. Hughes came to Harrison 42 years ago from Newark, where he was born. He had been known as "Judge" Hughes ever since he made his home in town.

The title resulted from Mr. Hughes' election as a justice of peace in 1900. He used to preside at court sessions in a carpenter shop. Five years later he became an election board judge and was judge of the board in the Third Ward's First District 30 years.

Never Missed an Opener
One of Mr. Hughes' proudest boasts was that he never missed an opening game of Newark's baseball team in more than 40 years. He attended last summer's opening game of the Bears. He belonged to Holy Name Society of Holy Cross Church. He was an engineer at Koppers Co., Kearny, several years, retiring seven years ago. Previously he worked at the General Electric Works. Harrison.

Mr. Hughes leaves a son, Joseph Hughes of Harrison, clerk of the works at Harrison Housing Authority's project; two daughters, Mrs. Donnelly and Mrs. Lillian McCloskey of Irvington; four sisters, Mrs. Anna McGill of Harrison, Mrs. Alice Straway of Newark, Mrs. Theresa Malague and Mrs. Elizabeth Reilly of Nutley; 16 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The funeral will be from Condon Memorial Home, 210 Davis Avenue, Harrison, with a requiem mass at Holy Cross Church at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow. Burial will be in Holy Sepulcher [sic] Cemetery, East Orange.
