David Valentine Hayes, 72, died on May 5th, 2022, at Absolute Care, Three Rivers

David Valentine Hayes

David Valentine Hayes died on May 5th, 2022, at Absolute Care, Three Rivers, where he spent the last year of his life being lovingly cared for by a dedicated and compassionate staff of amazing people. 

He was surrounded by his children who made certain he knew how truly loved he was in his final moments. 

David was born on January 10th, 1950, to Floridan and Arletta Hayes. 

He grew up in Westfield, PA where he graduated from Cowanesque Valley High School with the Class of 1968. After high school, he graduated from Williamsport Area Community College. Shortly thereafter, he married Nancy Russell and they had two children, Christopher and Tracey. 

Aside from his family, David’s true love in this world was guitars, music, and the way it brought people together. He played in many bands over his lifetime, and enjoyed nothing more than a good jam session. He had an extensive collection of guitars, and was always stalking the music stores for more, attempting to make a deal swapping equipment. Over the years, David gave away many instruments to young or struggling musicians; often people he barely knew or had just met. He was kind and generous, loved helping others, and always made certain that those he traded with got the better part of the deal. 

David spent most of his career working for Corning, Inc. at Sullivan Park, where he was always so proud of the projects he contributed to, earning several patents, that he displayed prominently – in his bathroom. David never met someone he didn’t consider a friend. He was a fan of inappropriate jokes and took every opportunity to share them with poor, unsuspecting waitresses, nurses or strangers. 

He had no filter and often said the wrong thing. He was, however, always genuinely distressed by the idea that he could have inadvertently hurt someone’s feelings. He had a well curated group of buddies and stayed in touch with many of his high school friends and band mates. David valued relationships with others above all else. 

David was a man who struggled mightily every day with issues associated with his mental and physical health. Though he had these dark clouds over his head, he was constantly telling others how luck he was and how blessed. He was the most grateful person we know, even when gratitude should have been hard to find. His favorite time of the year was the annual week he spent in Charlotte, NC visiting his son with his daughter. These were truly happy days. 

We will most miss David’s 750 phone calls a day, where he often thanked us profusely for answering. We will miss going out to lunch with him, where he would announce to every person he saw, whether he knew them on not, “This is my son! This is my daughter!”. We will miss how endlessly proud he was of us, even if he told us so often we grew weary of hearing it. We will even miss the crazy antics – the times he was sure we had perished because we didn’t answer the phone after the third attempt, his love for a good conspiracy theory, his ability to take every situation to the worst cases scenario, and his unwavering belief in aliens (he turned out to be right on this one…). 

So today, in honor of David, forgive someone you have been angry with, take time to visit someone you think might be lonely, share your burden with others with the intention of lightening theirs. Remember him when you are out for a leisurely drive, with the Beatles cranked up loud and your arm hanging out the window. 

David is survived by his two children Christopher and Tracey Hayes, his son in law, Christopher Glick, his grandsons Brody and Braden Hayes Glick, his nephews Seth and Will Watkins and Mica Benson, many cousins, and countless friends. 

There will be a celebration with music and food to remember David and send him off in a way fitting of who he was. 

Friends and family are invited to join us on Saturday, May 14th between 4:00PM and 8:00PM at the Forest View – Gang Mills Fire Department, 125 Forest Drive, Painted Post, NY 14870. Dress is casual. Feel free to wear your favorite band t-shirt or one with a stupid or inappropriate saying. We know David would have. 

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Corning Lions Club, who so kindly supported David by providing equipment enabling him to stay in his own home as long as possible (Corning, NY Lions Club Foundation, P.O. Box 1096, Corning, NY 14830).  Arrangements are in care of Kenyon Funeral Home, Inc.

Potter County Commissioners Meeting Minutes From April 21, 2022


Potter County Commissioners Metting Agenda From May 5, 2022


Foster Twp Police Recover Stolen Generator; Man Charged

 Foster Township Police Department

******* GENERATOR UPDATE *******

Late last night, officers were notified of the stolen generator for sale on Facebook marketplace. Officers were able to set up with an individual a buy, to attempt to catch the individual who stole the generator. 

The buy happened at the new Relax Inn (formerly Americas best value inn) and once the individual exited his room with the stolen generator officers converged on the area, and a male and female were detained without incident. 

The generator was seized to be returned back to its rightful owners and the two individuals detained were transported to our station for questioning. 

During questioning, the male, Donald (Donnie) Joseph Grundner admitted to seeing the generator the night of May 5th, and admitted to stealing the generator and taking it back to the motel. Donald stated the female had nothing to do with this incident. Through further questioning with the female, she knew very little information and was subsequently released. 

Donald was arraigned before District Judge Todd and remanded to McKean County Jail in place of $30,000 bail. 

Donald faces three charges;
Title 18, 3502 (a)(4) Burglary - Felony 2
Title 18, 3921 (a) Theft by Unlawful Taking - Felony 3
Title 18,  3304 (a)(5) Criminal Mischief - Misdemeanor 2 

We would like to take the time to appreciate the public with the amount of assistance everyone was offering to not only us in remaining vigilant and notifying us when individuals noticed the generator; but to the business CJ’s BBQ as they were flooded with generosity from the public. 

We thank you for your help, and are glad we were able to get the generator returned to its rightful owner, without any incident.

Sgt. Neil K. Dorrion Memorial Bridge Dedication Saturday

Sgt. Neil K. Dorrion, who served in World War II and was then killed in action while serving in Korea, will be honored this weekend with a bridge in Eldred Township dedicated in his honor, said Rep. Martin Causer (R-Cameron/McKean/Potter).

The public is invited and encouraged to join in the dedication, which will be held at noon on Saturday, May 7, at the Eldred WWII Museum, located at 201 Main St., Eldred.

Saturday’s agenda will include state, county and local officials; area veterans groups; and Dorrion’s second cousin who first suggested naming the bridge in Dorrion’s honor.

Sgt. Dorrion grew up in the Eldred area, served in the U.S. Army during World War II and reenlisted in April 1949. He served as a medic with the Medical Company, 5th Regimental Combat Team, 24th Infantry Division. He was killed in action on Nov. 4, 1950, at Kunu-ri, North Korea, while tending to his wounded comrades.

He was awarded the Silver Star, Purple Heart, Bronze Star with ‘V’ for Valor, Good Conduct Badge, Combat Medical Badge, Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Presidential Unit Citation, Republic of Korea War Service Medal, Pacific Theater Ribbon with Star and the World War II Victory Medal.

Under Act 64 of 2021, the bridge carrying State Route 1011 over Mix Creek in Eldred Township, McKean County, is designated as the Sgt. Neil K. Dorrion Memorial Bridge.
Bill to Aid EMS Response Passes House

Working to ensure emergency medical services (EMS) crews can respond to calls for help, I was pleased to vote for legislation that would make permanent regulatory waivers regarding staffing on basic life support (BLS) ambulances.

While I support this bill, I am drafting one that will go a step further and apply the regulatory changes to advanced life support (ALS) ambulances as well.

Permanently changing these regulations is vital to giving our EMS crews the flexibility they need continue saving lives and meeting the public safety needs of our communities. It is especially important in rural areas like ours.

Under previous state regulations, certified emergency personnel, such as firefighters with specific first-aid, CPR and emergency vehicle training, were permitted to drive ambulances with an emergency medical technician (EMT) on board. Those regulations were changed several years ago to increase the number of emergency medical responders (EMRs) or EMTs required per ambulance. That means if an ambulance company does not have the required staffing levels, they cannot leave the station at all and have to defer to another, which can significantly delay care for people in dire health conditions.

This regulation was waived during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure access to health care and the flexibility this has provided must continue.

House Bill 2097 is pending action in the Senate.
REAL ID Update

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is reminding residents that enforcement of the federal REAL ID Act will begin May 3, 2023.

As of that date, you will have to present a federally accepted form of identification to board a commercial domestic flight or visit a secure federal building that requires ID at the door. Federally accepted forms of identification include a Pennsylvania REAL ID driver’s license or ID card, a U.S. Passport or Passport Card or a military ID.

To date, approximately 1.6 million Pennsylvanians have chosen to get a REAL ID product. However, REAL ID is not mandatory. PennDOT continues to offer standard-issue driver’s licenses and photo IDs.

Full enforcement of the law has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was hindering efforts to process REAL ID applications across the country.

Honoring the Fallen

In conjunction with its 117th anniversary on Monday, the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) honored its 102 fallen troopers, including four members who died in the line of duty since the agency’s last in-person ceremony in 2019.

The four troopers most recently lost included Trooper Donald C. Brackett, who died on May 18, 2019, due to a medical emergency; Trooper First Class Dung X. Martinez, who died on Oct. 21, 2021, due to complications from COVID-19; and Troopers Martin F. Mack III and Branden T. Sisca, both of whom died on March 21, 2022, after being struck by an intoxicated motorist.

The ceremony included a moment of silence, rifle salute and helicopter flyover, as well as the reading of the names of all 102 fallen troopers. An online version of the PSP memorial wall, including photos and biographies of each member who died in the line of duty, is available at here.

PSP was established by Gov. Samuel Pennypacker on May 2, 1905, making it the first uniformed police agency of its kind in the United States.
