Obituary

Lanny J. McAveigh, 83, of Norwich, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 8, 2019, at the Norwich Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.

Born October, 25, 1935, in Syracuse, NY, Lanny was the son of James and Emona (Thornton) McAveigh. He was a graduate of Newcomb High School, in Newcomb, NY, where he was a star basketball player. Soon after graduating, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served from 1955 - 1957 until his honorable discharge. After his naval service, Lanny completed a degree in radiology, then worked as a radiologist for Chenango Memorial Hospital until a medical condition prevented him from doing so.

On September 2, 1956, in Long Lake, NY, Lanny married Lois (Houghton) McAveigh, who died on October 4, 2014. He is survived by his children, Martin H. McAveigh and Karen K. Page each of Norwich; son-in-law, Donald Page of Norwich; grandchildren Kirsten Page, and her husband, Michael Grover, of Sherburne, Sarah Russell, and her husband, Robert, of Virginia, Justin Page, and his wife, Monet, also of Virginia; and six great-grandchildren, Ava, Logan, Alana, Aleeyah, Alyssa, and Hadlee.

Lanny was an avid golfer, and a devoted fan of the NY Mets and Syracuse Orange. He also enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting with his son. He and Lois were very fond of traveling to Colorado, Canada and Maine, and trips to Myrtle Beach, SC to golf. Lanny made sure to travel each August to his hometown celebration, called “Newcomb Days.” After his wife passed, Lanny very much enjoyed having breakfast with his local buddies. He was also an active member of the Broad Street United Methodist Church. He will be fondly remembered for his witty character, and was always ready for a joke. Lanny so loved his family, and was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Lanny loved the gatherings of his family, and he was a friend to many. His kind and friendly manner had a positive impact on so many and will be missed.

Friends are invited to call at the Broad Street United Methodist Church from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 14, 2019. A memorial service for Lanny will immediately follow at the church at 12:00 p.m., where Rev. Rachel Morse, pastor, will officiate. Burial will take place at the convenience of the family at Mt. Hope Cemetery.

Contributions in Lanny’s memory may be made to the Broad Street United Methodist Church Memorial Fund, 74 North Broad Street, Norwich, NY 13815, or to the Chenango Memorial Hospital Memorial Fund, 179 North Broad Street, Norwich, NY 13815.

Lanny was my neighbor a few houses down on Randall Ave. I always appreciated the way he drove our road ...slowly and cautiously. If I was out when he drove past he always stopped to greet me! Thank you for your service Lanny! Rest In Peace.

After many years of not being in touch with family I reached out to my cousin Lanny and we had many a laugh during our long telephone conversations. And we were lucky enough to get to see him when he and our cousin Danny made a trip to Tupper Lake in June of 2016. He really was a fun loving person and my heart goes out to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and I am especially thankful to Martin for keeping me informed of how his father was doing.
With love, your cousin, Gwen Staves

Uncle Lanny was a kind and gentle soul that always had a hug, smile and goofy joke for all! He and Aunt Lois will always have a warm spot in our hearts. Every family should be blessed with an Aunt & Uncle like these two. Our hearts may be sad but they will forever be together and the memories they leave will hopefully bring comfort to his children, grandchildren, family and friends! with loving thoughts and sympathy, love, Martha & Don Cole
