Condolences to Pete McDonough and family

The staff of PolitickerNJ would like to offer our sincere condolences to Pete McDonough and his family on the death of Pete’s brother-in-law, William Sword Jr.

Sword died Monday, a victim of a tree felled by Hurricane Sandy.  Sword was a lifelong Princeton resident and managing director at investment firm Wm Sword & Co.  Sword is survived by his wife Martha and three children, Gretchen, Hope and Will.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 3rd at the Nassau Presbyterian Church, 61 Nassau Street, in Princeton, NJ. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad, Centurion Ministries or the Princeton Community Foundation.

 

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
—former U.S. Rep. Jim Saxton (R-3), on Gov. Chris Christie
