Harrisville outdoorsman was company consultant

HARRISVILLE — Charles L. Alcorn of Harrisville, died unexpectedly Friday (2-22-13) in his residence. He was 46.

He was a 1985 graduate of Franklin High School and Venango County Vo-Tech. He also attended Penn State and earned an associate degree in business in 1993.

Charlie started his welding career at Reed Welding in Grove City and later worked for Witherup Fabrication and Erection in Kennerdell. While working for Witherup's, he traveled quite extensively, including to Puerto Rico.
