WAYNE, N.J. (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Robert Roe of New Jersey was remembered as a tireless public servant.

About 100 people turned out in Wayne for the Democrat’s funeral on Monday. The 90-year-old died last Tuesday.

Roe served 23 years in Congress, chairing the Public Works and Transportation Committee before he retired in 1992.
