    Link to Google MapsObituary - James J. Matthews Jr., owner of Paterson firm by Lisa F. Friedman James J. Matthews Jr., president and owner of Hamilton Soap and Oil Co., Paterson, died Monday. He was 71. Mr. Matthews started out as a salesman in the family-owned business, said his son, James Matthews III of Ramsey. The company was started in 1912 by Mr Matthews’ father at 632 E. 19th St. Mr. Matthews single—handedly built up detergent lines, soliciting restaurant, diner and hotel owners in the area as customers, he said. He put a lot of time into his work, said his son. The younger Matthews remembers, as a teenager, working in the warehouse at his father’s company. After he graduated college, his son said he rejoined the company and, eventually, became vice president. In 1982, Mr. Matthews retired and sold the company to his daughter, Nancy Handlin of Ramsey, his son said. The company is now based In Hawthorne, said his son. An Army veteran of World War II, Mr. Matthews served in the Air Corps and flew missions over Germany. He was very proud of his military participation, his son said. Before joining the Air Corp., Mr. Matthews served as a buck private in the Army in Alaska for a year, said his wife, the former Helen Chapman of Ridgewood. Mr. Matthews was a parishioner of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel R.C. Church., Ridgewood. In addition to his wife and son, survivors include two daughters, Joan Noble of Moraga, Calif., and Nancy Handlin of Ramsey; a sister, Barbara LaVelle of Westfield; and seven grandchildren. Services will be 10 a.m Friday at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church. Arrangements are by John J. Feeney and Sons, 232 Franklin Ave., Ridgewood.
