Kenneth P “Kenny” Crounse of Berne, passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 18, 2022. Born on July 12, 1948, in Albany to Elton and Gladys Ouderkirk Crounse and raised in New Scotland. He was predeceased by his parents, brother Raymond Crounse, and brother Ralph Crounse who died in infancy.

Kenny went to MorrisvilleCollege and studied Blacksmithing when he was young and then turned his attention to carpentry where he became a true master of his craft and loved his work. He worked on many projects around New Scotland and the Hilltowns and was always willing to lend a hand. He was also a hobby farmer who enjoyed baling hay and raising cows and pigs. He also loved to golf and spend time chatting with his friends at Stewart’s over coffee. These were the highlights of his later years.
