Obituary of Anthony E Beyer
Anthony Edward Beyer died on June 6th, 2022 at home. He was born to John Henry and Alice Mahoney Beyer on November 30, 1936 in Flushing, NY and spent his formative years there. He graduated from Bishop Loughlin HS and after one semester at Manhattan College, he enlisted in the Marine Corps, serving from 1956 to 1959. Anthony credited his service with giving him the discipline and direction he needed to return to college. He returned to Manhattan and graduated in 1963 with a degree in economics. After beginning a career in education in the NYC school system, Anthony earned Master’s degrees from Hunter College and Kean University.
Anthony taught at South Richmond HS (Mount Loretto) for 29 years. Upon his retirement, he began a career in information technology, working in Scotch Plains-Fanwood School system and the Educations Technology Training Center. He eventually ended his career teaching computer science in the NJ Carpenter Apprentice Program. During the summers of 1982-1990, he managed the Strathmore Bath and Tennis Club, where he mentored many young adults with whom he became a father figure.
Anthony is survived by his wife Carole (nee Michalski), his son Matthew and his daughter Carin. He was the proud Poppop to Calvin Huegel, Faith Huegel, Grace Huegel, and Mary Huegel. Being Poppop was his biggest source of pride.
An original NY Mets fan, Tony suffered through many years with them. He was also a fan of the NY Giants and the NJ Devils. Many days and evenings were spent watching their games, both good and bad.
