"May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back May the sunshine warm your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields.."
Obituary of Philip Kunes
Philip E. Kunes, 74, stepped forward into his next adventure, joining his late spouse, Debra Spencer, Thursday evening on November 30th.
Surviving a stroke in 2006 that left him paralyzed and wheelchair bound, Phil succumbed to cancer attacking him a few months ago. . Although in a wheelchair for over 10 years Phil was anything but defeated. He will be remembered as the man who always had a laugh and a quick joke for those around him. He enjoyed people, loved children, and faced whatever life handed him with determination and an uncanny sense of humor. He will be so very missed, and leaves an empty spot in so very many hearts.
Philip is survived by his son, Philip Andrew (Christine); daughter, Jennifer and her son Chris of Indiana; also his daughter, Sandra (Rodney) Drain-Braswell, and their children; granddaughters, Brayonna and Cyndra; great-grandson, Dontelvius, great-granddaughters, Alanna and Jayla of Atlanta Georgia and Rocky Mount North Carolina. Also of Rocky Mount North Carolina are Phils daughter Karen (Jerry) Spencer Mott, and grand daughter Betthany and grandson Derrek.
Phil also leaves behind his sister, Beverly Patterson of Lockport NY., and his sister, Mona Rauch of Clearfield Pennsylvania.
Calling hours will be held on Sunday from 11AM-7PM at Taylor and Reynolds Funeral Home, 70 Niagara Str, where the funeral service will be held at 1 PM on Monday, Dec.4th. Burial will be at the convenience of the family. Condolences may be offered below, and flowers may be purchased through The Flower Barn.
