Kevin E. Elder

Kevin E. Elder, 60, of Cochranton, passed away on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at his residence.

Born on December 14, 1961 in Greenville, PA; he was a son of Howard W. Elder and Alberta C. (Schuman) Elder.

He was a 1980 graduate of Commodore Perry High School and Mercer County Vo-Tech. He started his career with PPG Industries in Meadville in 1987 working in the Hot End Tank area and worked as a furnace maintenance worker. He was an active member in the Sheakleyville Volunteer Fire Department in the 1980’s.

Mr. Elder avidly enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping. His greatest enjoyment was being in the woods hunting with his great friends and his son, Daniel.

Additionally, Mr. Elder took elk hunting trips out west and they have a special place in his heart. He was a life member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, National Wild Turkey Federation, National Rifle Association, White Tail’s Unlimited, and Hadley Rod & Gun Club. He was an integral part in starting the local Lake Land Chapter in Sharon, PA. Over the 18 years he was the Chapter Chair, where he helped raise over $1 million dollars for the elk conservation and land restoration across the United States.

Survivors left to cherish his memory are his mother, Alberta Elder; his son, Daniel K. Elder of Cochranton; three brothers, Paul W. Elder (Kathy) of Fredonia, Dale H. Elder (Debra) of Clarks Mills, and Mark S. Elder (Nancy) of Cochranton; his dog, Indy; and nieces, Christine and Jennifer.

He was preceded in death by his father.

We are so very sorry to learn of Kevin's passing. He was a great conservationist who loved the outdoors and supported what he believed in. He and some other folks from the Lakeland Chapter of the RMEF, did something really nice for us in March 2002, for which we will be forever grateful. Our deepest Sympathies to Kevin's family and friends.
