YOUNGSVILLE – There was standing room only Tuesday morning at the
funeral for Sullivan County Elections Commissioner Rodney Gaebel. He died
at age 66 on Thursday, July 23.
Among those who attended the funeral service at The United Reformed Church
of Youngsville was County Legislature Chairman Scott Samuelson, who said
he was a trusted advisor.
“He was a senior guy that you went to for answers and for advice
and he has been here a long time and guided the county through a lot of
things. He is going to be tremendously missed,” Samuelson said.
Gaebel served on the county legislature and was a Callicoon town supervisor
prior to being appointed to the elections commissioner post.
