Kenneth L. Post

Kenneth L. Post, 96, of Elba, passed away on December 30, 2023 at home under the loving care of his family, along with his wonderful caregivers.

Ken was born January 22, 1927 in Batavia, the son of the late Leo and Alberta (Colson) Post.

He was the longest serving fireman and a member of the Elba Volunteer Fire Department and was also the longest member of the First Presbyterian Church of Elba. He loved antique tractors, his John Deere toy collection and all things farming, and was still able to make his daily trip to the "shop" even in his 96th year.
