COOPERSTOWN — Lody Kukenberger, 85, of Cooperstown passed away peacefully early Wednesday morning, Oct. 9, 2002, at his home on the family farm on the River Road.

He was born on May 31, 1917, in Cooperstown, a son of Louis and Anna (Borstnar) Kukenberger.

He married Elizabeth J. Harvey on Dec. 1, 1964, in East Springfield. Mrs. Kukenberger died on Sept. 12, 1980.

Raised in Cooperstown, Lody attended the Cooperstown Central School and was then employed on the Kukenberger family farms on Beaver Meadow Road and River Road. In 1981, he officially retired from dairy farming but, until very recently, continued to help his son on the farm.

Lody was of the Roman Catholic faith. He enjoyed spending time outdoors, especially by the pond on the hill behind his farm.

He was also an avid collector of toy antique cars and trucks.

He is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Larry J. and Patricia Kukenberger and Joseph L. and Carrie Kukenberger, all of Cooperstown; three grandchildren, Cali Katherin Kukenberger, Larry J. Kukenberger Jr. and Eric W. Kukenberger; four stepgrandchildren, Mike, Kyle, Donna and Keith Bronson; two brothers and one sister-in-law, William and Elizabeth Kukenberger and Frank Kukenberger, all of Cooperstown; several nieces and nephews and a special friend, Michael Bronson Sr.

He was predeceased by his sister, Mrs. Rose Bentley, and a nephew, Wayne Kukenberger.

A graveside funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2002, at the Fly Creek Valley Cemetery, with Fr. John P. Rosson, pastor of St. Mary's "Our Lady of the Lake" Catholic Church in Cooperstown, officiating.

Friends may call at the Connell, Dow & Deysenroth Funeral Home in Cooperstown, from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday evening, Oct. 11, 2002, when Lody's family will be in attendance.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy in the form of memorial gifts may be made to Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care, Inc., 542 Main St., Oneonta, NY 13820.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Connell, Dow & Deysenroth Funeral Home in Cooperstown.
