Jeffery W. Retta, of New Windsor, NY entered into eternal rest on January 29, 2021 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan, NY after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 66 years old.

The son of the late Roy Richard Retta and Joyce (Brown) Retta, Jeffery was born on February 3, 1954 in Cornwall, NY.

Jeffery and his late father, Roy, were partners in a Commercial Painting business for over 40 years. They were a great team and were proud of their work and compatibility. Jeffery loved boating on the Hudson River and his favorite hobby was Locksmithing – there wasn’t a lock or safe that Jeff couldn’t open.

Jeffery is survived by his loving and devoted wife: Sharen R.M. (Anderson) Retta at home; his sister: Debra (Retta) Quinn and her husband Patrick of the Town of Newburgh; his step-mother: Mathilde Jean Retta; his step-sisters: Linda Ofeldt, Diane Stillwood, Cheryl Scaccio; and many step-nieces and step-nephews. In addition to his parents, Jeffery was predeceased by his uncle: Edward Retta.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 6th at King of Kings Lutheran Church, 543 Union Avenue, New Windsor, NY. Due to the continued public health concerns of covid-19, please know that there is an occupancy limitation which may cause a wait time. Facial coverings must be worn in church at all times.

I have so many wonderful memories of us. Halloween 2020 you held me up at our father's funeral, never did I imagine in my worst nightmare, would I be losing you three months later. There are no words for the loss of a sibling as wonderful as you were to me. Forever you will remain my big brother. My faith right now is upside down, as I can't imagine what God's plan could possibly be. You truly have always been my hero. I wanted just one more trip to the beach again with us all. I never knew this much pain could possibly exist. Until we meet again, fly high with the angels and know you are so missed by many. Your loving sister may you rest in peace and forever watch over me as I am lost without you.

Jeff loved his Mustangs and working on them with his Dad. They worked well together and Roy loved doing projects with Jeff. They are together again with no problems. He also loved his little sister very much. Deb you are not alone, although it feels like it. I will be here if you want to talk.

Jeff and I were friends from childhood our mothers used to wheel us around in strollers at Downing park and around Cornwall. Friends through high school as well. I will forever miss Jeff's friendship he had a very big influence in my life. To me he was like the brother I never had. Fly with the Angels my friend.
