Private services and interment have been held. Schantz Funeral Home, P.C., Emmaus handled the arrangements.
Kermit’s influence and involvement was felt around the world. Attempting to honor and pay respects with one funeral service would not have done him justice or fairness to the countless people who would not have been able to attend. Accordingly, an on-line tribute has been setup through Schantz Funeral Home at www.schantzfh.com.
Contributions may be made to: Word of Life International, Inc. P.O. Box 600 Schroon Lake, NY 12870.
