Obituary of Kenneth GEFFERS

In loving memory of Kenneth L. GEFFERS, 66, of Allentown, NY, who peacefully left our hearts Wednesday, January 3, 2018.  Born January 25, 1951, in Wellsville, NY, he was the son of Kenneth R. and Beatrice Teribury Geffers.  A Vietnam War Veteran, he served honorably with the US Army.

 

Leaving behind are his loving fiancée, LouAnn Miller; his and Sherry's three children, Nina (Wesley) Lewis, Avy (Lynn) Barnett, Luke (Kathleen Norton) Geffers; grandchildren Jennifer Wulf, Eliza, Wade, and Jake Lewis; four sisters, Margaret Giblin of Little Genesee, Linda Austin of Bolivar, Judy Mattison of Wellsville, and Sandy (Chuck) Davis of Alma;  four brothers, Daniel (Beverly) Mullen of Wadsworth, James (Betty) Geffers of Winnsboro/Mt. Pleasant, TX, Larry Geffers of Wellsville, and Raymond Geffers of Shongo; LouAnn's children, Karin, Kristina, Arthur, and John; several nieces and nephews.  In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a sister, Mary Lynn Geffers; two brothers, Joel Geffers and Calvin Geffers; and two brothers-in-law, Calvin Mattison and Claude Austin.

 

Kenny's favorite pastimes were fishing, hunting, horseshoes, bowling, mechanics, joking with everyone, and spending time with his family and grandchildren.  Most of all, he enjoyed his work.  He was employed by Transportation and Transit Associates in Hornell, NY.  When he became unable to work, due to illness, he felt a loss.  Enjoying trips to the casino would brighten his days.

 

A luncheon with Honor Guard will be held 1:00 PM, Sunday, January 28, 2018 at the American Legion in Wellsville in his honor and remembrance.  Memorials for Kenny may be made to the Wellsville American Legion or the Wellsville Veterans of Foreign War, where he was a member.
