Brian and Family: Your Dad was a great guy in my book. I have nothing but good memories of him all the way back to the mid 1950s when I was a kid. I remember when he bought his brand new 1959 Ford (red & white) with the newly invented hardtop that power folded into the large trunk area....really neat in its day! He was always an upbeat guy and pleasant. Always willing to help a person out. I don't think we ever had a disagreement. I will always remember him in a good way. I also appreciated the sacrifices he made for our Country in WW II. I read the book about the ship he served on and the sacrifices he and the rest of the crew made. An honor to say I knew him.

Brian although I have never met you I would like to express my sympathy to you at this sad time. My dad Edmund Keen was a good friend and co-worker with Mr Manning at Poloron. Growing up he was at our home many times. He also worked with my mother-in-law Doris Cron at the Lace works and I was very happy to reconnect with him several days a week while waiting for my mother-in-law in the parking lot. Both my dad and mother-in-law always had nice things to say about him. Every time I travel down Viewmont drive I think of him, his smile, his twinkling eyes and the genuinely kind person he was. May he rest in peace. Hope he is enjoying reuniting with those who have left this earth before him. May God bless you and your family.

We’re so sorry for your loss, Brian. Ernie was very special to our family and he will be missed. Childhood memories include holiday dinners, family picnics and watching “home movies” at Gog and Ernie’s, where we’d always take a turn opening the fake can of peanuts for a laugh. Years later, Ernie gave our kids bikes to ride while they visited their Grandma in Dickson City, pool time and popsicles on hot summer days, trips to Wal-Mart and tractor rides. He helped everyone within his reach. No form of help or kindness was too big or too small for him, whether it was a ride, a meal, grocery delivery, electrical work, a paint job, a jar of his strawberry rhubarb jam, some garden tomatoes, or a visit. Ernie’s greatness did not come in the form of fancy possessions, titles or status. His greatness took the form of sharing everything he had and, in humility, valuing others above himself. With love and sympathy, Judy, Albert, Jonathan, Kaylyn, Brynn, Aaron and Jamie
