He retired as Assistant Postmaster of Medford, NY, and was a life member of the VFW Post 2937, also in Medford.  He served two terms as Post Commander.  He was also a 4th degree in the Knights of Columbus.  He was always the comedian, and life of the party.  He loved to be laughing. He lived a full life, and will be laid to rest with the love of his life, Alice.


He is survived by his son: Robert E. Kannengieser; and his daughter: Alice M. Videlock and son-in-law: Michael.  He is also survived by his grandchildren: Kerri Beth; Colin and Ryan as well as extended family members and friends.
