Tow Truck Parade to Honor Jaime Homkey
James “Jamie” Homkey, a driver for M.W. Roosevelt and Sons, Canajoharie, was struck and killed early Monday morning by a tractor trailer while loading a vehicle on a flatbed on the shoulder of the New York State Thruway. Jamie, age 51, is survived by his wife, Michelle, two grown children, Stephanie and Trevor and a large extended family. Active in the Canajoharie Volunteer Fire Department and numerous other civic and charitable ventures, Jamie was known locally as the “town mechanic” for his willingness to help others in his community.
Jamie’s funeral service will be held at the Reformed Church, 165 Canal Street, Fort Plain, New York at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, October 15, 2016. A tow truck parade will form at Roosevelt’s Garage, 210 Erie Boulevard in Canajoharie and depart for the church at 12:30 p.m. Towers wishing to pay respects to the family may do so by attending visiting hours at the church between 11:00 a.m. and 1 p.m. and join the parade at the church site. The parade will travel from the church to the Canajoharie Volunteer firehouse, which is across from Roosevelt’s Garage. Participating towers are invited to park at Roosevelt's and attend a luncheon at the firehouse.
ESTRA members are urged to pay their respects to one of our fallen members.
