Harold Myers Obituary

Harold T. Myers (Homer) of Montgomery, NY, passed away on Friday, January 20, 2023, in Middletown, NY. He was 75.

The son of Harold Albert and Elizabeth Stalter Myers, he was born on January 19, 1948, in Suffern, NY.

He attended schools in Rockland County and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17. He served time in Vietnam where he was wounded in action and hospitalized for many months. In honor of his heroic service to his country, he was awarded a Purple Heart medal. After his discharge from the United States Marine Corps, he married his high school sweetheart Lucinda (Cindi) on April 22, 1967. He worked as a carpenter in Local 964 prior to joining the NYS Department of Corrections. He retired as Sergeant after 25 years of service.

During his earlier years, Homer embraced volunteer work with children. He coached many wrestlers and became a mentor for many little leaguers in the Village of Montgomery. Homer had a love for food and movies and was a frequent fixture at the AMC theatres.


A devoted husband and father, Homer cherished his children and passed along his love of hunting and fishing to them. Homer thoroughly enjoyed live events like the UFC and pro boxing. An avid fan of the New York Jets, he was a larger-than-life character at many tailgate parties. Homer’s friends and family were always involved in playing pranks on each other, some of which still bring people to tears with laughter. His family will forever remember fun times on road trips, long weekends spent in Atlantic City, trips to Las Vegas, and vacations to St. Marten where the Myers family felt at home. Homer had the uncanny ability to light up any room he entered. He loved life, the people around him, and he will be missed by many.


Harold is survived by his wife Cindi of 55 years and their three sons Harold (Mandie) of Randolph, NJ; Michael (Leanne) of Newburgh; and David (Kristin) of Sullivan County. Harold also left behind his beloved grandchildren Zachary, Zoriana, Ashley, Dylan, Morgan, Liam and Paige, as well as his mother-in-law Elaine Uhl and several nieces and nephews. Harold was predeceased by his parents and grandparents.


A visitation will be held on Thursday, January 26, from 2-4pm and 6-8pm at Millspaugh Funeral Home in Walden. Funeral services will be on Friday, January 27 at 10:30am at Millspaugh Funeral Home with a burial to follow at Orange County Veterans Cemetery in Goshen.

The Myers family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Highland Rehabilitation & Nursing Center, 3rd floor, in Middletown for all or your hard work and care.
