She then went to nursing school and was a graduate of the Corning Hospital Nursing School in 1930. She worked for many years in many capacities at the hospital. After leaving the hospital, she spent more years doing private duty nursing. Many people in the Corning area were the recipients of her caring and professional manner as she served them as their nurse. Gertrude never married, but the nieces and nephews of all her brothers and their wives became a part of their Aunt Gertie’s life. She gave them her time and her love and all were enriched by her sharing her life with them. All of her brothers John, Edward, Michael, Leo, Albert, Herbert and James predeceased her as did her beloved friend and sister-in-law Grace Hickey. She is survived by several nieces and nephews.

From this group was the special relationship she had with Anna and Bert Sweigart and their children that was sustained and nurtured over the years. Later in her life, when the passage of time and illnesses took their toll, it was Lois Sweigart Chase and her husband Charles who would become her primary caregivers and would oversee her needs. The Hickey families are indeed fortunate to have had such dedicated care and oversight afforded to her by the Chases. Gertrude was a longtime member of the Christian Missionary Alliance Church when it was in Corning and when they moved to Beartown Road. She was a participant in all the activities of that body and was a faithful supporter of it. She attended regularly until the last few years when illness intervened.

Edwin Frank “Big Ed” Huttleston ELMIRA | Edwin Frank “Big Ed” Huttleston, devoted husband and father, passed away April 26th 2002 at Arnot Ogden Medical Center. He was 60 years old and he very much enjoyed life. Big Ed was survived by his loving wife Diane and his children Kirk V. Huttleston and Doralee H. Ennulat, his beloved brother Tom Huttleston and sister Dawn Brown, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews. He was born in the Cortland, NY area where he was raised by his father Kirk Albright Huttleston and his mother Dorothy Porter Huttleston. There he and brother Tom enjoyed each other’s company with much time spent hunting, fishing and playing sports. After high school, Ed attended Broome Technical Community College where he studied chemistry and physics and met Diane, his future wife. After that, he worked at the Atomic Energy Comission in Idaho Falls as a chemical technician, and was recruited and moved to Corning to work at Corning Glass Works. During his chemistry years, he was published several times. In ‘62 Ed and Diane married and began their near 40 years together. In ‘72 he learned that, in addition to a few other physical problems, he was diabetic and after soul searching, he decided to quit his chemistry job so he could devote himself fully to his passion and business, Master Dive Shop. Originally he had a business partner Richard Bonsignore but after opening their shop together in Big Flats, it was promptly flooded by ‘72 Agnes. More than a little ironic, to have his new SCUBA shop flooded. After that he bought out his partner and moved to higher ground and re-opened his shop in the basement of his home. From then on, he was seen all over the Corning, twin tiers and finger lakes areas with his trademark SCUBA van and red knit divers cap. As a SCUBA instructor and retailer, here in our land locked community, Ed shared his enthusiasm with and taught over 1000 students, 8 of whom went on to become Navy SEALS. He also lectured to local school students and groups and was always a hit with shark teeth and stories. He did many jobs for the Army Corp of Engineers and helped to write some of the manuals they still use today. The Corp of Engineers noted that he had a 100% success rate on his jobs, which Ed considered natural but they considered noteworthy. Ed was also active with the police force and helped them when they needed a search and recovery done. He was able to recover items needed for criminal investigations and also aided in recovery of bodies when people drowned to help families with their closure. He enjoyed teaching SCUBA immensely and he volunteered much to the community. The close friends Big Ed made in his career as a diver are too long to include here and I apologize in advance for those not mentioned...Jim Dempsey, Tim and Tom Wright, Ed Velie, Robbie Parker, Ray Koziatek, Mark Caracci, Danny Vieira, Brett Bowers, Bill Copp, Bev Pierce, Stan Lachut, Fred Morrell, Ray and Tracy Overdurf, Mike Cilip, Bob Roe, Paul and Heather Dohn and Tom Wenderlich are a few of the many counted among his blessed friends. In these later years, Ed welcomed 2 new dogs into his home, fished whenever he had the time and energy, hosted his family weekly, and entertained many of his close friends. Thirty years of diabetes, four years of dialysis every other day, and other assorted physical difficulties seemed like a burden he used to fuel his desire to enjoy life all the more. He worked hard, he loved fully, and he was true to himself. His body has been donated for scientific research. If anyone is interested in making a donation, the family urges them to donate to the American Diabetes Foundation or the Dialysis Unit at the Arnot Ogden Medical Center. His family and friends will be hosting and celebrating his life from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM Thursday, May 2nd at 356 West Thurston Street at the Epworth United Methodist Church in Elmira, NY. All are welcome to join us, I’m sure there will be stories to make people laugh and smile and cry, and good food is anticipated as well. William C. Hyer BATH | William C.

While in Denver he picked up a copy of Communities magazine, and soon headed to Ithaca, NY, where he joined a woodworking collective called Woodworks, established in an old barn. There he first learned woodworking and cabinetmaking skills. Still searching for community, he did a brief tour of mid-Atlantic communities and fell in love with the beauty of the land and the chance to help build a community, and joined Shannon Farm Community, located in the Greenfield area of Nelson County, Virginia. There he worked at Heartwood Design, making furniture and building cabinets. He was married briefly to Lorna Christenson, an Occupational Therapist whom he had met in Denver. Lorna remained at Shannon Farm and was a life long friend to Karl. At Shannon, Karl acquired building skills and designed and helped build Haiku, a passive-solar design group house. Karl received an Associate Degree in Nursing from Piedmont Virginia Community College in 1985. He was a Registered Nurse in the state of Virginia, and specialized in psychiatric nursing. He worked at Blue Ridge Hospital at the University of Virginia, at Charter Hospital, and most recently at Augusta Medical Center in the Crossroads unit. Karl met Amelia L. Williams, PhD, then a graduate student at the University of Virginia, in January of 1990. With community help they raised the timbers of the second passive-solar house Karl designed and built, and one week later, in September 1992, they were married. Karl’s sons, who gave him the greatest joy, were born May 24, 1994 (Max) and December 21, 1997 (Miles). Karl was selected to be a member of the Shannon Farm Community Center Board, a group making decisions to design and build a community center - a project about which he was very excited. He was diagnosed with cancer in April 1998. He was grateful for the kind and knowledgeable help he received from his oncologist, Dr. Christopher Zazakos of the Martha Jefferson Cardwell Cancer Center, and all the staff at HOPE. Karl loved playing basketball and volleyball with his county friends, loved the Atlantic beaches and surf fishing, camping with his kids, making and eating hot sauce and salsa, being an excellent psychiatric Nurse and a perfectionist woodworker, helping his friends with projects, jumping on the snow plough to clear the roads in the wee hours of the morning, swimming in the pond, jazz music, playing drums, Vernor’s ginger ale, Mexican food. He loved his family and friends, and his death is a great and terrible loss to them. A memorial service will be held at Shannon Farm Community on Sunday April 28th at 10:30 AM. All are welcome. For directions, please inquire by e-mail to email@example.com (Charlie Hickox) or by telephone to 434-361-9383 (Karen Blackburn).

Born November 1, 1905 to the late Emanuel and Frederica (Geil) Keck, this humble man led a life epitomized by selflessness and service. He married Zelda Divine on September 3, 1935 and they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary prior to her death in 1988. Bill is survived by his son Donald, daughter-in-law Ruth, by two grandchildren, Lynne Ann (Richard) Vaia of Dayton, Ohio and Brian William (Molly) Keck of Lake Elmo, Minnesota, and a great-granddaughter Annika Clare Vaia. He grew up in Utica, Michigan and was valedictorian of his high school class. He graduated with a BS in physics from Michigan State University in 1929 and, until the depression, worked for Pure Oil as a geophysicist. For a time he taught physics at Michigan State before leaving to obtain a doctorate in physics from University of Michigan in 1941. For the next several years he studied geophysical methods applied to ground water hydrology which would later become his career. During World War II he applied his physics knowledge with the Naval Ordinance Laboratory to invent several anti-submarine detection devices that were deployed in the war effort. After the war he returned to East Lansing, Michigan where he formed a ground water hydrology consulting firm, W. G. Keck & Associates. He led this company to perfect a series of ground-water instruments sold throughout that industry as well as to provide consulting services to help municipalities and industries find sufficient water for their needs. He sold his company and retired in 1970 after receiving the medal of distinction from the American Groundwater Association for his years of service. Always thinking about others, his life was filled with service. He helped found Edgewood United Church and taught Sunday School for many years. He was active with the Scouting movement, serving as a troop and district leader. He became involved with and loved Rotary International whose motto “service above self” echoed his philosophy. He served the Okemos, Michigan club as secretary for more than a decade. Upon moving to Corning, New York in 1989, he joined and supported the Corning Rotary Club. He was a Rotary international Paul Harris Fellow. At age 88 he became a driving force that helped found the Southeastern Steuben County Habitat for Humanity. Over the past decade he became known in the Corning area for his marquetry skills. He taught classes in this art at the Corning Senior Center, later in conjunction with Corning Community College. His “Habicrafters” sold their marquetry work for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity. A voracious reader, Bill could speak with wisdom on most any subject. His love of fishing honed his gift of patience. His humbleness was an inspiration to all. His deep and abiding faith provided a source of strength to himself and countless others. The funeral service and committal will occur in East Lansing, Michigan on Saturday, April 27, 2002. A memorial service will take place in Corning, NY at a later date.
