His friends called him "The Mayor of South River."

Growing up, Christopher More Dincuff was a class president and member of three varsity sports teams at South River High School. Long after he moved away, he was still a fixture at football games and other events in his small Middlesex County hometown.

He knew the town so well, friends would blindfold him, drive him to some obscure corner and have him guess what street he was on. He was usually right.

"He knew everybody. He knew where everybody lived," said his mother, Joan, who still lives in South River.

Mr. Dincuff of Jersey City formed similar close bonds with co-workers at Carr Futures, where he was an energy group account executive. He died when terrorists attacked One World Trade Center on Sept. 11. He was 31.

Born in New Brunswick, Mr. Dincuff earned a business degree from Villanova University in Pennsylvania. Before starting his financial career, he worked for a minor league baseball team in California, indulging his passion for sports.

He and his fiancée, Angela Gutermuth of Boonton, were planning a September 2002 wedding.

"He was a hopeless, hopeless romantic. He always made everything special for me, even ordinary days," Gutermuth said.

In addition to his mother and fiancee, Mr. Dincuff is survived by his father, Frank, and stepmother, Eileen, of Piscataway; two sisters, Beth of North Brunswick and Amy of South River; a brother, Ian of Piscataway, and grandmothers Helen Rojek and Helen Dincuff, both of South River.
