Dwan R. Margeson, of 316 Munson Rd., passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, September 23, 2009, at the age of 55.

 

Born June 24, 1954 in Newark, NY, he was a son of the late Lewis and Gertrude (Hodges) Margeson.  Dwan grew up and graduated high school in Phelps.  He had been employed with Cayuga Medical Center for the past fifteen years.  An avid outdoorsman, he most enjoyed hunting with his sons and 4-wheeling with family and friends.  When family and friends got together, Dwan could be found behind the grill in “his half” of the garage….lol.  Work was an important part of his life as well, and he took great pleasure in the many friends he made along the way.  He was a very loving husband, father, grandfather, co-worker and friend.  Dwan touched many lives and everyone will miss his love and generous spirit.

 

Dwan was preceded in death by his parents.

 

He is survived by his wife, Betty (Kennedy) Margeson; sons, Danny (Laurie) Margeson of Waterloo, Gary (Monica) Margeson of Geneva, David (Mitzi) Peters of Waterloo; daughters, Donna Peters (Ray Forest) of Harford and Melissa Peters (Bill Foulkrod) of Waterloo; eight grandchildren and one great grandchild.  Dwan is also survived by a brother, Stephen (Joan) Margeson; sisters, Linda Daldry, Bonnie (John) Crane; a large extended group of family and friends; and his beloved and spoiled dogs; Dachshund, Spunky and Shih Tzu, Sassy.

 

Family will be present to receive friends from 4-7pm on Friday, October 2, 2009, at Lansing Funeral Home, 32 Auburn Rd., Lansing, NY.  A memorial service, officiated by Rev. Tim Dean, will begin at 7pm at the funeral home.
