Milton C. Kuhn, a retired Buffalo Public Schools attendance teacher and a former manager for Erie County government, died Wednesday (Jan. 27, 1999) in Sisters Hospital after a brief illness.

Kuhn, 88, of Amherst, was a native of Buffalo and attended local schools.

He began his career in public services with the Emergency Relief Bureau during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Later, he became a caseworker for the county's Department of Social Services and was promoted to examiner of methods and systems, a position he held for approximately five years before joining the city school system in 1942.

Kuhn's first assignment was at South Park High School, and during the next 33 years he worked as an attendance teacher in the city's schools. He was assigned to Riverside High School and served there 17 years before retiring in 1975. Kuhn was a member of St. Paul's United Church of Christ in Pendleton.

Surviving are his wife of 60 years, the former Helen Graap; a son, Roger of Amherst; and a daughter Linda of the Town of Tonawanda.

Services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday in Sieck and Mast Funeral Home, 4614 Main St., Snyder.
