Oliver T. Lodge 

Oliver T. Lodge, 48, of New Paltz, died Tuesday, January 25, 2022, at his home, surrounded by his family.

Born in Kingston, he was the son of Susan Lodge and her husband, Steven Martits of New Paltz and Martin Lodge of New Paltz. 

Oliver received his Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY-New Paltz in sociology. He was employed by Ulster County Community Corrections and later at the Golden Hill Nursing Home.

He became disabled by sarcoidosis, a lung disease, but continued working as a writer, an artist and music aficionado. He was congenial and artistic and very funny. He loved nothing better than hiking with his son, Severin, and his beloved Jack Russell terrier, Lexie.

In addition to his parents, Oliver is survived by a son, Severin Lodge of Smithsville Flats, NY, two sisters, Kirsten Lodge Wichita Falls, TX and Brooke Martisse of Montclair, NJ. Many caring relatives also survive.

A Memorial visitation will take place on Saturday, February 12, 2022, from 1-3 PM at the Copeland-Hammerl Funeral Home, 162 South Putt Corners Rd, New Paltz.

Interment will be held privately.

Copeland-Hammerl Funeral Home is honored to assist the family of Oliver with the arrangements.
