Former Cumberland Councilman Ernie Kessell Passes

June 22nd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Word this morning that former Cumberland City Councilman Ernie Kessell has passed away.

Mr. Kessell served on council from 1970-74 and then from 1978-1982.  Employed by Kelly Springfield, Mr Kessell was very active in a number of community causes, including Boy Scouts of America Troop 2.

He had been in declining health for the past couple of years.  Ironically, he passed away only two days after Cumberland's former elected officials gathered at City Hall for a reunion.  

We'll have details on arrangements as they become available.
