Obituary

Francis “Jake” McPhilmy was born 8/4/35 to Earle and Winifred McPhilmy. He graduated from General Brown High School and went on to graduate from Canton College. After that he began his 45 year career as a metrologist and calibration technician with Carrier Corporation where he met his future wife, Donna Ferguson. They married in 1964, welcomed three children and shared their love and faith for 55 years. 

After retirement in 1998, his greatest pleasure was spending time with his six grandchildren, rollerblading (well into his 70’s!), and playing tennis with anyone he could get out on the court. He simply found great joy in the sport. 

He left us as he lived - quietly, with little fuss, but much dignity. The world is a little less bright but better for those fortunate enough to have him. 

Besides his parents, Jake was predeceased by his siblings, Ellen, John, Raphael and Mary.

He is survived by his wife, Donna; his children, Amy, Maureen and David; and his beloved grandchildren, Devon, Bailey, Madeline, Riley, Peter and Spencer.

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, October 16th from 4-7pm at Eaton-Tubbs Fayetteville Chapel, 7191 E. Genesee St., Fayetteville. The funeral Mass will be offered at St. Patrick’s Church in Chittenango at 10am on Thursday. 

Donations may be made in his name to Francis House, 108 Michaels Ave, Syracuse, NY 13208.
