Sharon and I used to attend the Nole football games sitting one row behind this adorable couple. We got to know of their good nature and Charlotte's amply supplied bag with enough provisions for a platoon of soldiers, some how passing security. Ken was always good natured and even laughed at my lame jokes, as I his. He seemed to be quiet when he could not say something good about someone, probably the function of a Spirit directed life.
He meant the world to my friend and his fellow golf buddy, when he became medically incapacitated and still came to visit and go out for a meal and a drive. May God bless you and keep you, make his face shine upon you ...He blessed us all through Ken's life!

Charlotte, I am so sorry you lost your soul mate. Kenneth was a wonderful man and such a sweet ❤️ When I lived in Tallahassee we used to joke how he was my “boyfriend” and I was proud to call him my boyfriend because he was the BEST FRIEND anyone could ask for.
I know there are no words that will make your heartbreak any better but just know I’m praying for you and the Chuites Family will someday find peace in the Lord. Amen 🙏

Even though my heart aches at the loss of my BROTHER,Kenneth. He was a strong Christian man, that believed in his LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. He was a Loving Husband to Wife Charlotte. A Wonderful Father to Daughter Susie. Kenneth will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Kenneth was a Great BROTHER to have, I would not have exchanged him for any other. He had such a kind and loving HEART that all who met him could feel. Till We Meet Again, BROTHER In HEAVEN. My Prayers continue for Charlotte and Susie. My LOVE to YOU BOTH..

Ken was always a joy to be around. He’d always greet me with a huge smile, a warm hug, and a “Hey, girl!” We were neighbors, golfing buddies, and friends that could have just as well been family. If I got to choose family, I would have chosen Ken, Charlotte and Susie. May he Rest In Peace and be chipping in for birdie and getting holes-in-one forever. My love and prayers are with Charlotte and Susie and the rest of his family.

I have many fond and loving memories of my brother, Ken. Through hard work and play on a farm in north Florida, Ken grew up with a strong work ethic and the ability to solve problems. Ken and I had nicknames for each other. His nickname was "Worms" and my nickname was "Bones". Basketball was a passion of his in high school. He truly loved it. Our family was so scared the day he left for Vietnam. God protected him and brought him back safely to us. Ken was truly loved and respected. I will miss him so much. Ken is now in God's loving arms.
