Micky Hochron

Milton (Micky) Hochron died just shy of his 101st birthday on October 24 in his home at Stonebridge at Montgomery, surrounded by his children.


A native of New York’s Lower East Side, Milton married Sylvia (Pine) and moved to Staten Island, where they raised their family.


A graduate of Stuyvesant High School and New York University, Micky’s long educational career started as an industrial arts teacher at Port Richmond High School. During his time at the school, he launched a program to help students learn real-world skills outside of the classroom. He also taught evening ceramics classes on Staten Island and ran the adult evening program at Junior High School 27.


Micky went on to a supervisory position at the Board of Education in New York before returning to Staten Island as one of the first assistant principals at Susan Wagner High School, where he served as the chairman of the industrial arts department.


In addition to his work in the school system, Micky spent summers as the camp supervisor of the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds on Staten Island and loved camping with his wife and children across the United States and Canada.


Following his retirement in 1976, he and Sylvia traveled the world before settling in Concordia in Monroe Township, where they watched their family flourish. Following Sylvia’s death, he spent his last 12 years at Stonebridge, where he met many new friends and spent countless hours swimming and exercising. He was involved in many activities held there.


Micky was predeceased by his parents Nathan and Laura, and six siblings. He is survived by his children: Dr. Robert Hochron and his wife Debbie of Skillman; Dr. Stuart Hochron and his wife Shabnam of Santa Fe, NM; and his daughter Shelly Hochron and her husband Jack Harrower of Armonk, NY.


He also leaves behind his grandchildren Adam Hochron and his wife Elizabeth Menscher, Douglas Hochron, Benjamin Hochron and his wife Alyson, Molly Harrower, and Jackson Harrower, as well as his great-granddaughter Erin Hochron.
