     Since his disability, he worked as a gunsmith for several years.
     Mr. Niles enjoyed automobiles and was the proud owner of a 1970 Plymouth Super Bird, which he enjoyed driving to area car shows. He enjoyed wood craving and making small wooden toys, but most of all he was an avid prankster.

Michael Culver, pastor of the First Baptist Church officiating.  Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery, Port Allegany.
     A military service will be conducted by the Port Allegany Honor Guard immediately following the funeral at the funeral home.
     Memorials can be made to the Port Area Ambulance Service or the McKean County SPCA.
Condolences can be made to:  Dorothy Mohney
