Dyer, respected gynecologist Dr. Thomas E. Dyer, 84, of Milford went home to the Lord while visiting a friend in North Jersey Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013. Dr. Dyer was a 1953 graduate of St. Peter's College, now Univer- sity, in Jersey City, N.J. of which he has been a lifelong supporter. He was graduated from New York Medical College and did his residency at Metropolitan Hospital in New York City. After medical training he spent two years in the U.S. Army deliver- ing babies in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. Dr. Dyer was a board certi- fied obstetrician/gynecologist at Milford Memorial Hospital. Arriving there in 1965, he de- livered babies and performed gynecologic surgery until 1992. He continued just office practice and retired after 41years of prac- tice in 2006. He had served nine years on the Board of Medical Practice for the State of Dela- ware. Dr. Dyer will be sadly missed by many. His ability to remember something about a person that he had not seen in many years was uncanny. He was a soft-spoken, modest gentleman who always greeted people with an extended hand. He was a kind and caring man, loved by many and will surely be missed by all who knew and loved him. Dr. Dyer was preceded in death by his parents, Valentine A. Dyer, D.D.S. and Clare K. Dyer; a sister Marjorie C. Dyer; and a brother Valentine A. Dyer Jr. He is survived by his loving wife of 15 years, Barbara; and three stepchildren, Michael A. Hand (Dana) of Lithia, Fla., Jeanna M.
