SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Hans Hofler, owner of Marion Jewelers on Park Ave. in Scotch Plains and member of the Scotch Plains Business & Professional Association (SPBPA), passed away earlier this week after a battle with cancer.
"We lost a dear friend of our business community here in Scotch Plains," said Jeffrey Stein, a fellow member of the SPBPA. "I will miss Hans' big smile, his never-ending stories, and the laughs we had shared over the years."
"He had a great Austrian accent and the store was always so nicely decorated," said June Mooney, a Fanwood resident. "I am so sorry to hear this."
No information about arrangements are available at this time.
