Obituary for Kenneth Roy Berlin

Kenneth R. Berlin, age 70, of Harborcreek, passed away on Thursday, November 15, 2018, surrounded by his loving family, at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Erie, following a lengthy illness. He was born in Erie on January 29, 1948, son of the late Robert V. and Esma H. (Call) Berlin.
Ken was a 1966 graduate of Harbor Creek High School. He was a Vietnam War veteran having completed two tours of duty in Vietnam with the U.S. Coast Guard. During Ken’s second tour of duty, he assisted in the evacuation of Saigon following it’s fall. He was employed by the General Electric Co. for 25 years prior to his retirement. Upon his retirement, he was employed as a school bus driver by the Harbor Creek School District and was lovingly known by the students as “Mr. Kenny”.
Ken was an active member of Messiah Lutheran Church where he proudly served as an Assisting Minister. He was also a member of the East Erie Moose Club and Gem City Gun Club. Ken was a long-suffering Cleveland Browns fan. He enjoyed trap shooting and was known by all as the “go-to guy” for not only repairs, but life in general. His passions, however, were his children and grandchildren whom he loved dearly.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one brother, Robert E. Berlin; his nephew, Bobby Berlin and his beloved pet dog, Molly.
Survivors include his beloved wife and love of his life of 50 years, Sally C. (Hopsecger) Berlin; four children: Ken A. Berlin (Rhonda) of Millcreek Twp., Pam M. Van Horn (Mark) of Harborcreek; Tom M. Berlin (Beth) of Harborcreek and Andrew V. Berlin of Erie; one brother, Richard Berlin (Ann) of Millcreek Twp.; five grandchildren: Katie and Mandy Berlin, Abigail Van Horn and Thomas and Claire Berlin and many beloved nieces and nephews.
The Berlin Family wishes to thankfully acknowledge Denny, Tom and Danielle from Great Lakes Hospice as well as the staff and fifth floor veterans of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center for their loving care of Ken.
