Michael Ruane - April 10, 1928 - September 26, 2019

Obituary Preview: Michael Joseph “Joe” Ruane of Warners, NY shook off this earthly existence and passed to Eternal Life on Thursday, September 26, 2019, at his home, surrounded by loving family members. He was 91 years old.
Son of Michael and Catherine Ruane, Joe was born In Castlebar, Co. Mayo Ireland in 1928. He spent his late teens and early twenties in England, before leaving home and family for the promise of the “States” in 1950. Two years later on October 4, 1952 he married “his Margaret”. He became a US Citizen in 1956.
His life was a labor of love and a love of labor. He was a loyal member of Central New York Laborers where he held numerous union leadership positions before retiring from the Syracuse Housing Authority in 1990. He seldom took a real vacation and when he did, it was to return to Ireland with Margaret and several of his children. He often worked outdoors under harsh and extreme conditions, before returning home to catch the day up with Margaret at the kitchen table while she cooked supper. And he would do it all again the next day and the next.
Faith and Family were the cornerstones of his life and will ever be part of his legacy and a life well- lived. He was a daily communicant at Holy Family Church in Fairmount. He loved Margaret with a simple purity seldom seen to this day, which only intensified after her untimely passing. Not one single day passed when he didn’t tuck her well-worn mass card into his shirt pocket and over his heart. He was a devoted father, doting grandfather, and proud great-grandfather, affectionately known as “GG”.
Joe was predeceased by Margaret in 1991, his grandson Sean Ruane in 2011, his daughter in law Peg (Gerald) in June and his siblings: Mary Murphy, Pat Ruane, Tom Ruane, Delia Stuart and Peggie Gibbons.

Hugh Papworth - July 20, 1922 - September 14, 2019

Departed: 09/14/2019 (Syracuse)
Obituary Preview: After a well lived life of 97 years, Hugh Pearson Papworth “jumped ship” and joined the love of his life, Annie Ophelia (deceased in 1971), on September 14, 2019. He lived his life on his terms and he left this earth on his terms, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Syracuse on July 20, 1922 to Edwin F. and Mary Jane Papworth, Hugh is survived by four of his six children. He suffered the loss of his dear sons Stephen Ward Papworth in 1996 and John Taylor Papworth (Cynthia) in 1998. He is survived by Hugh Jr. (Jodi), Edwin (Rebekah), Annie Ophelia (David Blakely) and Joy (John Townsend) and two stepdaughters, Cyndy Hiott (Ricky) and Kathleen Mungle. He is also survived by over 20 grandchildren, over 50 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild.
Hugh left Cornell to enlist in the US Air Force after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He became a Pilot in Command in the 43rd Bomber squadron and flew 53 missions in the Pacific theater. He earned a purple heart (for three combat related injuries) and the Medal of Honor for saving his radio operator out of a plane about to blow up. He later worked as an engineer and invented a new hydrogen explosion-proof electrical connector for NASA’s space shuttles. He continued to be an inventor, a metallurgist and a building contractor. He worked ten years with the U.S. Agency for International Development in 27 countries of Africa, based out of Abidjan on the Ivory Coast. He loved puttering around and fixing things and was always resourceful in coming up with a plan. He was always very musical and loved to sing and play his violin. He was a member of the Clearwater Symphony Orchestra and sang with the Tampa Bay Opera Company. He was always housing musicians and artists whenever they needed a place to stay. Whatever church he attended, you could always hear his deep bass voice in the choir. His heart always had a special place for the Thousand Islands as he grew up a River Rat for nine decades and maintained a home there right up until his death. Hugh’s parent’s had been going to the St. Lawrence since the 1920’s, and in 1943 purchased “Nemahbin”, a large 8 bedroom home on the west end of Comfort Island. Many family reunions were enjoyed there and part of the island remains in the family today. Hugh also maintained his pilot’s license until his late 80’s. He flew his wife and two daughters across the U.S. in a Cessna 180 in 1970 and visited many of his “war buddies” along the way. Sailing was another favorite pastime and he jumped at the opportunity to do so right into his 90’s. Hugh was a man of faith and he attended church wherever he was. He was a strong supporter of the church in many ways. His favorite scripture was Corinthians 13:13…”And now these three remain; faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”. Hugh’s greatest pride came from his family. His “girls” always took great care of him and we are all grateful that he was able to stay with Joy and John these last few years. It was only because of their commitment that he lived to be 97.
It was Dad’s wish to be buried at Arlington. When those details are available we will share them. There will be a celebration of his life on Sunday, November 3rd at Ophelia’s Garden Inn (Annie & David’s home) starting at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend, share stories and just celebrate a life well lived.

Mark Drury - February 24, 1951 - June 08, 2019

Departed: 06/08/2019 (Syracuse)
Obituary Preview: Mark Warren Drury, 68, of the road, did not go gentle into that good night, it was the afternoon. On June 8, 2019, Mack, as he liked to be called because in Maine, where he was born, Mark is pronounced Mack, passed away in Syracuse, NY after a long, often hilarious, battle with many nurses and family members.
He will be remembered as that guy who showed up every few months to plug his camper into your dooryard and tell funny stories of how he almost crashed, or DID crash, his current vehicle. He loved to laugh and found a lot of things funny. His daughter, Jennifer Drury, called him Voluntarily Homeless with a loving smile. She had spent a summer traveling with him across the whole country on Rte 2, which he had always wanted to do because he had been born on Rte 2 in Rumford, Maine. On this journey, she introduced him to many of her own road friends and visited with many of his road friends. They also stopped in to see relatives and loved ones.
Mark’s last plug in was in the dooryard of his son, Curt Drury. Mark spent his last year with his son in Camillus, NY. Curt and Mark spent some of their time at their camp in Pulaski, NY doing all sorts of wild things. They loved being outdoors in nature shooting at things, burning things, and driving the Ute all over things. Mark even managed to break the Ute during its first few weeks testing its abilities.
Mark is also survived by a grandson, Trey Drury (born to John Drury, deceased, and Jamie Churchhill). Mark loved showing Trey the ins and outs of camp-life in Pulaski. Having grown up in the woods of Dixfield, Maine, Mark adored everything outdoors. Late in life, he was content sitting and watching fishermen casting their flies into the water, hence the camp on the Salmon River.
Mark also leaves behind his brothers Stephen Drury and Michael Drury, along with a bevy of cousins, nieces, and nephews. His ashes will be spread in a field in Dixfield, Maine.

Richard Lavin - June 13, 1961 - June 04, 2019

Departed: 06/04/2019 (Syracuse)
Obituary Preview: Richard "Mad Dog" Lavin, 57, of Camillus passed away Tuesday after a long illness. Born in Syracuse he was a graduate of C.B.A. and runner for the track team. He retired from the Syracuse City School district as a teaching assistant after having taught at Ed Smith and H.W. Smith Schools. Rick would turn his love of running into coaching at C.B.A., Henninger, and as an official with CNY Track and Field. He was longtime member of the Syracuse Chargers Track Club and participated in many marathons.
Before there were streamlined track meets, Rick could and did count ALL of the laps in a 4 x 8 race or 4 x 1 mile--take your pick--for each runner, 4 runners per team lined up along the closed bleachers in Old Manley,waiting for their turn to receive hand-off, 7 or 8 teams, say, 28 or 32 runners. Ask him how many laps, say, a Corcoran runner had before his or her hand-off--get this, a 200 meter track, twice the number of laps as for an outdoor track of 400 meters--and he'd tell you without losing count of what's happening at that very moment on the track beside him and get it right. You could take it to the bank. We didn't need lap-counting cards, then. We had Rick.
Rick was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Joseph and Mary (Sullivan) Lavin; maternal grandparents, Dominic and Victoria (Terlikowski) Ranieri; father, Richard T. Lavin; and uncles, Msgr. Robert F. Lavin and Alex Ranieri.
Survivors: mother, Rose Anne (Ranieri) Lavin; sister, Victoria (Joel) Anthony, brother, Robert (Mary Beth Orzell) Lavin; sister, Elizabeth (John) Cottrell; nieces and nephews, Sean, Christopher, Shelby, Abigail, Catherine, Fionnagain; very special aunt and uncles, Joseph Ranieri, Peter and Sally Ranieri.
Services: 10 am Saturday at St. Charles Church, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated. A calling hour will be 9 am to 10 am Saturday at the church, 417 S Orchard Rd, Syracuse, NY.
