Neil Teicher, 77, passed away peacefully at his home in Poughkeepsie, New York with loved ones by his side.
Born on November 12, 1942 in the Bronx, Neil was the son of Sam and Mary Teicher. He attended Lincoln High School in Yonkers and earned degrees from NYU, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Hunter School of Social Work. Neil served in the US Army during the Vietnam era and was a proud member of the Samuel H. Dow Post of the American Legion. Neil was a Hudson Valley resident for over 40 years, though his earlier adventures and travels took him from the West Village to Monterey, to Turkey, to England, and the Alps.
Neil was a social worker who started his career working with various local agencies and later went into private practice as a psychotherapist. He was known for his quick wit, dry humor, kindness and compassion. And he made the best ropa vieja.

Neil is survived by his daughter Mary (John), grandson Theo, his life partner, Patricia, nieces and nephews Merrie, Clay, Steffanie and Maverick. He is pre-deceased by his sister, Florence, and wife Josie. Neil was a devoted and beloved uncle, brother, cousin, and friend to countless others who will mourn his passing. He will be deeply missed and forever loved.
A private funeral service will be held at 2pm on Friday, November 6, 2020 at William G. Miller & Son Funeral Home, Inc., located at 371 Hooker Avenue, Poughkeepsie, New York.
Calling hours before and after the service are from 1pm to 2pm and 3pm to 4pm. In compliance with NYS guidelines, social distance and face masks will be required, and capacity may be limited. Please visit to leave online condolences.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research and The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley.

It was my honor to know Neil for over 30 years. He was one of the kindest men I have ever met. He did have a dry sense of humor and always had a genuine quality to his interactions. He loved his work and was fully dedicated to his clients. He never wanted to retire and loved the balance between his work and his family. The community will mourn his loss as well his family and friends.
May he rest in peace

My mother and I were both Neil's clients, and he saved our lives., Years later, as an adult, he talked me thru some very difficult times. His compassion and intelligence shaped me in so many positive ways. My condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.

I was a long time patient of Neil's. He treated my son and then helped me through a terrible divorce.
He was a fabulous therapist of course, but we would talk about politics and i always looked forward to hearing about different parts of his most amazing life. I feel fortunate to have known him. He has made me a calmer, more reflective person, which was always his goal. I quote him often. My heart goes out to his family and all who were lucky enough to have him in their life.

This is Billy. Almost Neils brother in law. He and my Sister Pat attended my wedding on Valentines Day in Georgia. I consider him to be part of the Brooks family. Me, my wife Maryam and the rest of the Brooks and Sanders family will always hold fond memories of Neil who will forever be one of us.

Dear Mary, Patricia and family,
Our sincere condolences to you all.
I had known Neil for many years, first via the Poughkeepsie Tennis Club with memories of many matches together, always with a congenial competitiveness that we both enjoyed. Secondly, we shared a common livelihood, Neil as a social worker, therapist and myself as a psychologist. Neil was a special soft spoken, kind hearted human being and will be missed.
Due to my age (91), Covid, and lack of mobility we were unable to attend services.
