It has been reported that prominent Holmdel resident Lincoln Niess has passed away. Lincoln was a retired international businessman, involved for many years in the banking industry. He was a World War II United States Army veteran, and the husband of Bayshore Republican Conference President Valerie Niess.
Lincoln was a very admired person, who seemed to draw out the very best in people. Though incredibly smart and analytical, he also possessed a keen ability to laugh and make others do the same: A rare combination.
Having had the privilege of knowing Lincoln for several years, he was a great gentleman, the kind of which is rarely found today. It is being reported that Lincoln died last night, and there is no news yet of any arrangements.
This was a very good person. My deepest condolences to Valerie and his entire family.
