In Memoriam - Kenneth W. Woessner

Kenneth W. Woessner
June 16, 1926 - December 15, 2017

On Friday, December 15, 2017, Post member Kenneth W. Woessner reported to Post Everlasting.  Ken was a good man!!!  He was one of the first post members I met when I first became involved with the Merrick Post No. 1282, America Legion in 2007.  Ken participated in a number of events for the American Legion. Being a carpenter by trade, it was a natural fit when he volunteered to help but down a new Post floor a number of years ago.  He also participated in the Auxiliary Garage sale a few yeas ago.  He also liked to play cards, so when the Post members started up Friday night poker night every week for the past few years, you could find Ken there. Ken will be missed!!!

Merrick Post No. 1282, American Legion, members will be holding their solemn ceremony for Post Member, Kenneth Woessner, they are going to meet at N. F. Walker's Funeral Home on Monday, December 18, 2017, at 1:30 p.m. for a 2:00 p.m. American Legion ceremony. N. F. Walker's Funeral Home is located at 2039 Merrick Avenue, Merrick, New York. For more information call the Post phone at 516-521-6989 or the Funeral Home at 516-378-0303.
