Jerome Similor Dorcilhomme, son of Similor and Omila was born in 1952 in L’Artibonite, Haiti. Jerome was the ninth beloved child of his parents. In Haiti he was known for his love of soccer, riding his bike all around town and his competitive nature as he played many intense games of Bezique. Everyone who knew Jerome, also known as E’Tidieu… admired him for his devote dedication to God, his unconditional love for his family and his infectious sense of humor.
In the early seventies Jerome met Margaret. The two shortly married and started their family in Saint Marc, Haiti. In the early 1980s Jerome had the opportunity to immigrate to the United States to fulfill his goal of building a new foundation for his young family. A few short years later he was joined by his family in the United States. The family first settled in Manhattan but then moved to Irvington, New Jersey where they lived for a majority of his life.
During his time in the United States Jerome has held several jobs. Always working very hard in an effort to provide his family with the coveted American Dream. Most recently he worked as a security guard in Union, NJ. Despite his long work hours Jerome made it a point to always play a very active role in his church and in his community, and was well known for always being there to help a friend.
He will fondly be remembered for his devotion to his family and his church. Jerome is survived by his wife Margaret; his children Widlor Dorcilhomme, Lorline Dorcilhomme & her husband Jimmy Massiny, Sherlie Dorcilhomme, Samuel Dorcilhomme; and his grandchildren Bryce and Jayden Massiny. He is also survived and will always be cherished by his siblings Marie Sadila, Oranie, Joseph Ovilma, Similien, Ovilia & Joana; and countless nieces and nephews.
