Death of Kane soldier leaves void for ‘best friend’

December 22, 2011

The family of Staff Sgt. Ken VanGiesen of Kane is trying to cope with the brave soldier’s death, especially during this Christmas season.
A member of the Pennsylvania National Guard detachment based in Kane, VanGiesen-- because of his special skills-- was deployed with another unit in Afghanistan when he was killed in July.
To deepen the heartache of the loss, that unit returned to the U.S. just two weeks ago.
The soldier's parents are Tom and Sue VanGiesen of 137 Lincoln St., Kane.
