Kuhn, Raymond P. - Statesville  
STATESVILLE, N.C. - Raymond Peter Kuhn, 85, of Statesville, passed away Thursday (March 5, 2015), at Gordon Hospice Home. A native of Camden, N.J., he was born July 9, 1929, the son of the late Peter Kuhn and Mary Zak Kuhn. A 1947 graduate of Doylestown (Pa.) High School, Mr. Kuhn honorably served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. His career path was that of a skilled plumber, working for HUD. Mr. Kuhn moved to Potter County in Pennsylvania in 1970. In 1993, he married the former Esther Holcomb Keir and the couple moved to Oak Island in 1996. There they were active members of the First Baptist Church until 2012, when ill health necessitated a move to Statesville to be close to family. Mr. Kuhn was an enthusiastic outdoorsman enjoying hunting and fishing. He grew an enviable garden where he supplied fresh vegetables and tree saplings to everyone he knew. Ray was an avid reader and actively followed sports. He liked to play cards and was especially accomplished at pinochle. Together they delighted visiting family and friends across the country. Ray had a warm smile for everyone he met and never turned down a piece of apple pie. Those remaining to cherish his memory are the only love of his life, Esther; a daughter, Gail Keir Kailbourne (Gary) of Statesville; a stepson, Alan Keir of Monessen, Pa.; a sister, Marie Madden (Hugh) of Furlong, Pa.; eight grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a stepson, Terry Keir; two brothers and two sisters, all of whom were from the Doylestown, Pa., area. The family will hold a private memorial service at a future date. Memorials may be made to Oak Island Baptist Church or the charity of the donor's choice.
