Dr. Robert Wayne Kern – ALIQUIPPA (RACCOON TWP.)

Dr. Robert Wayne Kern passed away on Monday, June 5, 2017, and went to Heaven to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He was born January 20, 1935, and reared by his parents in Bullskin Twp., Fayette County. As a child, many called him “Whitey” because of his blonde hair.

His Alma Mater granted him an honorary doctorate degree in 1993 for his faithfulness to God and his work in the ministry at Community Bible Church, Aliquippa. Continue reading
