Obituary: Emil A. Kuhling 97

Emil Kuhling, 97, died on March 23, 2013 in Rutland, Vt. Emil, a long-term resident of Woodside Queens, NY came to Killington in 2006 to live with Red and Taylor Glaze on Deanhill Road. Emil enjoyed his last years in Vermont and was often seen walking along Deanhill Road with Abby the golden retriever, and Rusty the cat following behind.

Emil was a Friday night regular at the bar at Domenic's where he and Red shared a Heineken and pizza while visiting with friends. His friendly manor, bright and animated conversations and his smile will long be remembered.

Emil Kuhling served in the US Army Air Corps during WW11 and upon returning to NYC he became a career firefighter in Brooklyn, NY.
Emil is survived by his nephew, Richard Kuhling of Spokane WA, and niece's Taylor Glaze, Killington, Vt., and Suzan Harding, Portsmouth, NH and eight great-nieces and nephews and three great-great nephews and niece.

Graveside burial will take place at 12-noon on May 14, 2013 at the Vermont Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Randolph Center, Vt. The Vermont National Guard will perform the honors with a 21-gun salute, flag ceremony and the playing of taps.
