John F. Toomey, Sr., 78, of Cicero, died Saturday, July 29, 2017 at Crouse Hospital. Born in New York City, John was the last surviving child of 6 born to the late Thomas and Josephine (Flahive) Toomey. He resided on Ashford Court in Mattydale for 37 years until relocating to Cicero in 2012.

John retired in 1970 as a New York City Police Officer. He co-operated Singer Mattydale Sewing Center with his sister, Mary Tracy, for 15 years in the 1980's. After that endeavor, John helped establish a family business with his children Express Embroidery/Papa Sports in Syracuse for the past 25 years. He was a member of the Police Benevolent Association in NYC. John was a longtime parishioner of St. Margaret's Church in Mattydale where he coordinated the CYO Youth Program, served as a Eucharistic Minister, taught their Baptismal Preparation Class, and was actively involved in numerous church functions.

He was predeceased by his wife, Elizabeth "Betty" Toomey, in 1991.

John is survived by two daughters: Barbara "Boo" (Glen) Miles of Cicero and Beth Toomey of Cicero; two sons: John F. (Lorie) Toomey, Jr. of Baldwinsville and Michael P.
