Mr. Paul Raymond Kuss, age 78, of Gloversville, passed away after a brief illness with his family by his side on Friday, January 8, 2021, at Nathan Littauer Hospital, Gloversville.

He was born October 26, 1942, in Gloversville, the son of the late Richard and Jacqueline Kuss. Paul proudly served his nation in the U.S. Marines and was later employed as a machinist for General Electric in Schenectady for many years.

He was an avid hunter and enjoyed spending many seasons with his beloved hunting party. He was a proud member of the Concordia Club and the Pine Tree Rifle Club.
