NJILGA - New Jersey Institute of Local Government Attorneys

George B. Neidig Jr. - In MemoriamFormer NJILGA Trustee, George B. Neidig Jr., 69, of Cape May Court House, died of cancer Friday, May 6, at home. 

Mr. Neidig, was a former Trustee of the Institute from Atlantic & Cape May Counties, and was also a former president of the Cape May County Bar Association. 

He was, at various times, a lawyer for Cape May Point Borough and a lawyer for the planning board and the zoning board of adjustment in the City of Cape May.  He was a former municipal court judge in several Shore communities, including Dennis Township and Lower Township.

"When George retired on Dec. 31, 2015, he was a judge in Avalon, Middle Township, Woodbine, and Stone Harbor," said Patricia Jordan, his secretary since January 1981. 

He was a judge at the same time in all those jurisdictions, beginning in Avalon in 1985, Jordan said, "because he liked it and he was good at it."

Born in Williamstown, Mr. Neidig graduated from Williamstown High School, earned his bachelor's degree at Gettysburg College, and graduated from Georgetown University Law School.  He was an officer in the Army Reserve.

After beginning with the law firm of Perskie & Callinan in Wildwood in the 1970s, Jordan said, he was with the firm of Gould & Neidig in Wildwood until September 1980 and then with Baker, Fusco & Neidig in Avalon until opening his own firm in Avalon in 1984.

He was a member of the judicial and county prosecutorial appointments committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association and the committee on municipal courts of the New Jersey Supreme Court, Jordan said.

Mr. Neidig was also an executive board member of the Southern New Jersey Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
Besides his legal work, Mr. Neidig for 40 years had bred salukis, long-legged dogs said to be as fast as greyhounds.  In 2006 he began showing his dogs in competitive events and in 2010 his saluki named Mandu was the national saluki champion.

Mr. Neidig is survived by a cousin.

A life celebration was held on June 24 at the Old County Courthouse, Cape May Court House.
