Lynn Ira Lamphier

Himrod - Lynn Ira Lamphier, 81, of Himrod, NY, entered into eternity on March 21st, 2021, surrounded by his loving family at home.

He was born on December 30th, 1939, to Ike and Pauline Lamphier in Canisteo, NY.

Lynn was devoted to the love of his life, Nancy, who affectionately called him "Mr. Murphy", they tied the knot on December 4th, 1976, three months after meeting. Theirs was a lasting love, spanning 44 years of joy found always in each other.

He was a man who loved nothing more than spending his time with his family. Lynn and Nancy often traveled with them throughout the years to the Thousand Islands or Old Forge, relishing the outdoors, birdwatching, walking, and camping.

He enjoyed building and working on his house, and was happiest when busy on a project.

Lynn's greatest legacy was his numerous extended family, which included many dear loved ones who, though not related by blood, were in his heart all the same.

He is survived by his cherished wife, Nancy Yerkes Lamphier of Himrod, as well as his adoring children Jason Lamphier and his wife Rachael of Italy Valley, Devin Horton and her husband Lorin of Hammondsport, Shannon Lamphier and her wife Rebecca of Catskill, and Donald Green and his wife Chasity of Penn Yan, as well as many beloved grandchildren and a great grandchild.

A sister, Pat Lamphier of Campbell also survives, as well as several nieces and nephews.

At Lynn's request, there will be no funeral services. Instead, the family asks that donations in his memory be made to Ontario-Yates Hospice Care, 756 Pre-Emption Road, Geneva, NY, 14456.
