JAMAICA- Jeffrey Fillion, 52, formerly of Lansingburgh, NY, West Dover, and Bennington, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 17, at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital after being stricken ill while mountain biking.

Born in Troy, NY, he was the beloved son of C. Leo “Fil” Fillion and his wife Barbara, of Speigletown and the late Beverly J. “Bev” St. Johns Fillion, who died on November 8, 1998. He was a 1978 graduate of Lansingburgh High School and was named a co-captain of the football team while he played at Lansingburgh High. He went on to serve in the US Navy Seabees Construction Battalion.

Mr. Fillion was self-employed as a custom home builder and was an avid snow boarder, mountain biker, and rollerblader. His dance moves in those crazy red shoes will be missed.

He was the loving and cherished father of Carson and Julia Fillion, of West Dover; dear brother of Gary (Peggy) Fillion, of Sandy Hook, CT; Ricky Fillion, of West Milton; Marci (Bob) Bird, of Clifton Park; Kim (Michael) Cantanucci, of Lake George; Cynthia (Marc) Goldstein, of Clifton Park; Robert Fillion, of Albany, NY; Kelley (Gary) Fillion Bristol, of Troy, NY; and Kyle (Candice), of Saratoga Springs, NY; and loving companion of Crystal Mansfield, of Townshend. He is also survived by nieces, nephews, and friends.

A funeral service was held on Tuesday, August 23, at 7 pm at the John J. Sanvidge Funeral Home, Inc., in Lansingburgh where Rev. George P. Fleming, Pastor, Transfiguration Parish in Speigletown officiated.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Millstone Park Trails (a special riding place of Mr. Fillion’s), PO Box 44, Attn: Pierre, Websterville, VT 05678.
