Born on October 27, 1935 in Clearfield, he was the son of the late Arthur and Helena (Hughney) Magnuson.

Filmore graduated from Clearfield High School in 1954. He was a sheet metal mechanic with Local #12 in Pittsburgh having worked at Tafco and the Johnstown Area.

He enjoyed building and built several houses mostly by himself in his spare time. He called that his "golf" game.

He was a past president of the Experimental Airplane Association No. 748 in Clearfield and enjoyed flying his own Cessna for many years.

Mr. Magnuson served in the U.S. Army Reserves for 8 and a half years and retired as Staff Sgt.

He was an active member of the Grace Lutheran Church in Curwensville and always put God first.

He is survived by his wife, Myrna (Schwartz) Magnuson whom he married on January 18, 1958 in Allegheny, NY; two children Lisa Miller and husband Ken of Johnstown, and Gregory Magnuson and wife Pamela of Lisbon, MD; four grandchildren, David Hoffer and wife Amber, Katie Hoffer, and twins, Jason and Emma Magnuson; three great grandchildren, Mia, Aimee, and Ethan Hoffer; and also two step grandchildren and four step great grandchildren, Brian, Mindy, Dylan, Devyn, Julie, and Jacob.
