Robert W. Adler Sr., age 80, of Colts Neck, went to be with his loving lord on Tuesday, August 2 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, with his beloved granddaughter Ashley at his side.
He was a member of the Presbyterian Church at Shrewsbury where he served as an elder and deacon. He also served on many Presbytery committees at the regional level and was instrumental in bringing the Cents-Ability program to the church.
Bob served as an officer in the Army from 1961 to 1963 with posts at Fort Benning and Fort Dix. He spent most of his professional years in the construction insurance industry, ultimately in his own agency Riley Walker Agency, Inc. which he co-owned with his beloved wife. His most recent career involved real estate developing with his cherished sister, Linda.
Bob loved his monthly card playing group and the men’s car club at the church. He enjoyed making his favorite soups and trying new recipes, fine wine, but most of all watching his granddaughter dance.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Mildred Turner Adler and Frederick Horst Adler; and his beloved wife, Helen Herndon Adler. Bob is survived by his son, Robert W. Adler Jr., granddaughter, Ashley Victoria Adler, and daughter-in-law, Sherri Murray Adler, all of Rumson; a son, Richard Turner Adler and daughter-in-law Jennifer Embler of Belford; a sister, Linda Williams-Lambert and her husband James Lambert of Florida; and brother-in-law, Jesse M. “Bud” Herndon III and his wife Debbie Herndon of Maryland. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews as well as many loyal friends.
Thompson Memorial Home, Red Bank, was in charge of arrangements. The family requests that donations be made in his memory to the church memorial fund or to a charity of your choice.
