On Sunday, November 17, 2019, Carlton Plummer Sr., loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away.
Carlton was born November 2, 1938 in Medina to Howard and Marion Plummer. He and his brothers Lee and Gary, grew up in Lyndonville where Carlton’s passion for raising animals and taking care of the land was realized. His life’s work was dairy farming and served his community as the Future Farmers of America State Treasurer and as a long standing member of the Lyndonville School Board. Carlton imparted his work ethic, honesty, and his humble love of nature to his ten children. Carlton enjoyed a hot cup of coffee and peanut butter sandwich after coming in from morning milking. He loved watching his grandchildren play and holding babies on Kendrick Road. He could be found tilling the garden with his team of horses or bringing the cows in from pasture with his favorite dog Mickey. Carlton spent his free time picking out the perfect chopping block for his wife Mary, hunting, reading the newspaper, solving a crossword puzzle, or watching westerns. He was a kind, genuine, patient, and generous man who will be missed greatly by everyone he knew.
Carlton is preceded in death by his father Howard, his mother Marion, and his brother Gary.
He is survived by his loving wife of 26 years Mary Dooley, his brother Lee (Val, Ray, Lori, Penny), his children Carlton Jr. (Roxanne, Dylan and Evan), Courtney (Lisa, Jasmine, Jocelyn), Jeffrey (Michelle, Michael, Nikki, Ryan), Todd (John, Chase), Russell (Alex and Peyton), Randall (Paige, Bailey, Shelby), Megan (William, Kendyll, Leigha), Ingrid, Martin (Jenna, Aubrey, Sylvia, Everett), and Gabriel (Jenna, Sylas, Mable, Eliza, Betty).
The family will be hosting a memorial service and celebration of his life at the Ridgeway Fire Hall at 3 P.M. on Saturday, November 23, 2019. This event is to celebrate the life of a farmer and as such the family requests that friends and family dress comfortably to honor him.
