Potter County Coroner to seek re-election

Coroner Kevin J. Dusenbury, Sr.
Shinglehouse, PA----Potter County Coroner Kevin J. Dusenbury, Sr. of Shinglehouse has announced he will seek the Republican nomination for Coroner in the upcoming spring primary election.

Dusenbury has served as coroner since 1994 and previously served as Potter County deputy coroner since 1984.

Since serving as coroner, Dusenbury has been involved in the development and updating of a mass fatalities plan for the county with Potter County Emergency Management officials and fire and emergency personnel throughout Potter County.

In addition to his regular duties of the office, Dusenbury has in the past distributed many materials from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to area schools to discourage underage use of alcohol.

Dusenbury states, “It is my greatest honor to serve the people of Potter County during one of the most, if not the most, difficult times of their lives. Throughout the years of serving as Coroner, I have always tried to comfort and care for families while diligently performing my duties.” 

A graduate of Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY, Dusenbury holds an associate in applied science degree in Mortuary Science. A licensed funeral director in Pennsylvania and New York, he owns and operates the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home in Shinglehouse.

He is a member of several volunteer, civic, fraternal, and professional organizations. He and his wife, Patty, have two children, Kevin (Nicole) Dusenbury, Jr. and Kathryn (Robert) Barger.

Kevin was amazing during the loss and investigation of my loved ones death. He gave us comfort when we needed it most and never forgot my face even asd time passed and would always make sure he asked how we were doing and lend kind words ... I couldnt imagine what kind of person it would take to have to do the job he does. He will always have my vote and a place in my heart as truly one of our best citizens. we should be proud to have such a man working for us
