Obituary for David Ray Silliman

In Loving Memory
David R. Silliman
August 27, 2022

David R. Silliman, 62, of Fulton, NY; passed away on Saturday, August 27, 2022, unexpectedly, in his home. He was born on July 24, 1960, son of the late Ray Lester Silliman and Margaret Alice Young. He was a Graduate of Camden High School, Class of 1978. After graduating, he enlisted in the United States Navy, serving from 1978 to 1982, achieving the rank of E5, with an honorable discharge. He then transferred into the Naval Reserves until 1991.

David wore many hats in his life, while raising three daughters, from high level engineering to the local farmers markets. He thrived on the next business adventure. His pride and joy was owning MJ's Music Bar in Fulton, NY, which he opened in honor of his late daughter, Megan Jeanne.

His hobbies were endless. He most loved his time spent with family and friends, large gatherings, hosting celebrations, making new friends and living in the moment. He enjoyed snowmobiling, boating, shooting sports, cars, collecting coins and antiques. He was the guy who would give you the shirt off his back. He will be greatly missed.

He was pre-deceased by his parents, Ray Lester Silliman and Margaret Alice Young; his daughters, Megan Jeanne Silliman - Thomas and Allison Michele Silliman - Mignot; his sister, Jeanne Louise Silliman; sister-in-law, Lorraine Iona Silliman; a niece, Tammy Jo, Shears and a nephew, Warren Rodney Wood.

David is survived by, his daughter, Jamie Nicole (Harry) Dunn, of Angier, NC; his grandchildren, Kiley May Dunn, Madison Michelle Dunn, Lily Anne Dunn, of Angier, NC, Mackenzie Marie Thomas, of Williamson, NY, David Michael Schlosser, of Fulton, NY and Brandon Ray Green, of Oswego, NY; two sisters, Ruth Anne (Kent) Sparnon, of Wolcott, NY and Alice Marion (Paul) Franceschini of California; his brother, George William Silliman, of Wolcott, NY; his special friend, Orysya Bilyanska; a niece and a nephew, along with several great nieces and nephews.
