Private services and interment have been held. Schantz Funeral Home, P.C, Emmaus, handled the arrangements.
Kermit's influence and involvement was felt around the world. Attempting to honor and pay respects with one funeral service would not have done him justice or fairness to the countless people who would not have been able to attend. Accordingly, an online tribute has been set up through Schantz Funeral home at www. schantzfh. com.
