John P. Rivera, a hardworking and dedicated lifetime area resident, died on Friday, July 6 at his home in Bloomingburg. He was 53.
The son of Eleanor Howard and the late William Howard, he was born on October 1, 1964 in the Bronx. John proudly served his country in the United States Army from 1983-89. He worked for the O.C. Sheriff’s Dept., and The Town of Mt. Hope Police Dept. He received a lifesaving medal during his career at Mt. Hope for rescuing an accident victim. For the past 30 years, John worked as a supervisor for Orange and Rockland Utilities. He enjoyed sports and played baseball and football in high school.
