Philip M. "Muggsy" Favro

CADYVILLE — Philip M. "Muggsy" Favro, 80, of Route 3 in Cadyville, passed away Wednesday April 17, 2013, at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Cadyville on Nov. 4, 1932, son of the late Perley and Sadie (Tormey) Favro.

Muggsy was a devoted husband, beloved father, grandfather, great- grandfather, uncle, and friend. He will be missed and remembered by the numerous foster children that he and his wife cared for over the years.

He enjoyed hunting, hiking, kayaking, and many other outdoor activities and will especially be remembered for his love of sports. Muggsy coached and umpired for almost 50 years throughout the North Country. He was most known for his big smile, his firm handshake and his well known response; "When my feet hit the ground this morning, I knew it was going to be a great day and if the sun was shining- that's a bonus."

Muggsy is survived by his wife, the former Jane Nelson of Cadyville, whom he married Aug. 5, 1956 at Our Lady Of Victory Church in Plattsburgh; his children, Lorri Favro and her fianc^ Tom Douglas of West Chazy, Larry Favro and his wife Tracy of Lancaster, Pa., Lanny Favro and his fianc^ Terri Randle of Cadyville, Lisa Berglund and her husband William of East Greenbush; his grandchildren, Ashlee Favro, Bradley Favro, Olivia Favro, and Cole Berglund; one great- grandchild; his siblings, Theresa Gillette of Nevada, Beverly Stevens and her husband Tom of West Sand Lake, Ralph Favaro and his wife Gerry of West Chazy, and Tormey Favro and his wife Sophie of Keeseville. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
