Join us in support of the Overton family as they morn the loss their beloved father, grandfather, and husband. Victor was born and raised in Nyack, his children were also raised in Nyack and he never wavered from his support of the commiunuty he loved. Whether it was volunteering at the firehouse, working long hours for the DPW, or being an active parent of two young daughters attending Liberty Elementary School, Victor always had a huge smile on his face.
He is survived by his wife, Rena Melendez-Overton; sons Victor Jr. and Corey; daughters Victoria, Cheyanne and Jalyssa; brothers George Overton, John Swain and Stephen Swain, and three grandchildren.
Please make your tax deductible donation to support Victor's wife and children and to thank them for all of the days and nights they shared him with us. He kept the Village of Nyack safe and sound. We love you Vic and promise to take care of your family the way you took care of Nyack all these years.

A gathering after the funeral is planned for Jackson Fire Engine Co. No. 3, at the Nyack Fire Department's Central Station on Park Street, Nyack.
Below is the official notice from Village Hall...
"I am devastated to have to let you all know that Victor Overton, our beloved DPW head, died last night after a long and hard fought illness.
We all adored Vic, his quick laugh and his unbelievable willingness to help everyone in this village with anything they needed. I often remind people that while all of us slept soundly in the quiet of a snowstorm, it was Vic who climbed out of his warm bed and left his beloved family to head out and plow so that we could all get to work in the morning. As Hurricane Sandy raged around us, Vic refused to go home continuing to clear streets and storm drains even when it was no longer safe.
He made sure our trash was emptied, our potholes were filled, our paving happened, our streets were swept and our park was cleaned. He cared for everyone in this Village for over 20 years. Cared deeply. And he made us laugh. We will miss him and we can’t imagine village life without him.
When funeral details become available, we will share them with all of you."
Mayor Jen Laird White
