"Charles Wendell Haynes, 83, of Fort Myers, Florida, passed away peacefully at home on February 14, 2024. He was born on February 29, 1940, in Lakeland, Florida, to Felton and Olga (née Belz) Haynes. He is survived by his wife, Carol Martin Haynes, to whom he was married for forty-four years; children from his first marriage, Dennis (Missy) Haynes, Lorie Anne (Andy) Bryant, and Byron (Patty) Haynes; his wife’s daughters, Lori (David) Browne and Caroline (Bernard) Shucavage; his grandchildren, Cody Haynes, Kelly (Duncan) Rady, Nick, Natalie, and Naomi Bryant, Kellsey (Josh) DeLong, and Alesia, Lauren, Jonathan, and Grant Shucavage; and two great-granddaughters, Delilah DeLong and Emersyn Shucavage. He is preceded in death by his parents. After graduating from Collegedale Academy in 1959, Charles worked at several auto repair shops until he took over Sam’s Auto Repair on the corner of Edison Avenue and Fowler Street in 1979, which he owned and operated for 40 years. Upon his retirement, he still kept his hand in auto-mechanics by mentoring his grandson Grant at his auto repair shop, Southwest Florida Motorsports, up until six months before he passed away. Charles was very involved in the Fort Myers Seventh-Day Adventist Church, of which he was a member for 66 years. He dedicated much of his time as a Pathfinders leader and choir director. He was especially passionate about music, always singing and playing the piano whenever he could. He and his father started a quartet with two other men from their church in the early 1970s. In his last several years on earth, he sang baritone in a church quintet called The King’s Men, which brought him so much joy and happiness. Out of all the roles that Charles filled, being a grandfather was his favorite. He never said no to playing kickball and riding scooters with his grandchildren, chasing them around as the “tickle monster,” or giving them advice. He exemplified the love of Jesus to everyone he met and had a servant’s heart, giving freely to those around him. He will be greatly missed. His family looks forward to that wonderful day when all are reunited with each other in heaven. A memorial service to honor his life will be held at the Fort Myers Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 3451 Ortiz Avenue, Fort Myers, Florida, on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at 11:00 am.

John Michael Kays

Aug 18, 1940 - Feb 14, 2024

Fort Myers, FL

"John Michael Kays, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend bid his earthly adieu and ascended on Ash Wednesday 2024 at the age of 83. Born to Harold and Anna Mae Kays and growing up in Edwardsville, IL, John\u0027s journey through life was a symphony of achievements and “Let’s Go” adventures that spanned the oceans and touched the hearts of many. John\u0027s early years were marked by a love of sports, excelling in baseball and football, earning him a football scholarship to the prestigious Northwestern University playing under Hall of Famer, Ara Parseghian. Graduating from the Kellogg School of Management with a minor in Theology, John\u0027s academic prowess was complemented by his commitment to the Sigma Chi Fraternity brotherhood, a bond he cherished for a lifetime and passed to his sons and \u0026quot;now his brothers.” \u0026quot;Hollywood Handsome\u0026quot; with a charisma that could light up a room, John briefly ventured into modeling, gracing billboards across Chicago and catalogues nationally. However, destiny called him to serve his country, leading him to join the Navy, where he sailed the Seven Seas as a gunnery officer on the destroyer USS Jonas Ingram DD-938. His naval service instilled in him a love of the sea and an unwavering passion for the land and country he served. After the Navy, John embarked on a 35.5-year journey with 3M, earning the moniker \u0026quot;Big Typhoon\u0026quot; as he traversed the globe, bringing sandpaper to the farthest corners. His leadership and drive were crucial in the creation of the new Micro-Abrasives Division that has fueled the growth of our modern internet- powered era. From Florida to New York, from Illinois to Oklahoma, from Minnesota to California, John\u0027s career was as diverse as the friendships he cultivated, especially at the White Bear Yacht Club in Dellwood, MN, where he anchored his life in camaraderie, golf, tennis, cross country skiing and the occasional wood chopping session. A lover of music, John\u0027s banjo skills were showcased in various forums, including the Buffalo Banjo Band. His musical tastes were eclectic, from building his own \u0027Gut Bucket\u0027 to singing \u0026quot;The Impossible Dream\u0026quot;; to dancing, and marching friends and family around their home to the \u0026quot;Saints Go Marching In.\u0026quot; Retirement beckoned, leading John to his \u0026quot;new home\u0026quot; in Florida. He revisited the coastal waters on his Albin 28\u0027 aptly named \u0026quot;Let\u0027s Go\u0026quot;. \u0026quot;Let\u0027s Go\u0026quot; succinctly defined the core of the man, his driving force. His love for Key West, cultivated during his Navy days, became a frequent escape. Stays at the Curry Mansion, long walks on Duval Street and dining well only added joy to his retirement rhythm. John\u0027s thirst for new adventures was unquenchable. Cunard Cruise line opened up new worlds for him to explore along with meaningful land adventures. A Master Captain certification, volunteer work with the Cape Coral Police, and Robert Service-inspired camping trips to the Yukon and Alaska reflected John\u0027s zest for life. As a big brother to \u0026quot;Kev,\u0026quot; John\u0027s bond was unbreakable, marked by laughter, and unwavering support. Known as \u0026quot;KZ\u0026quot; to many, he was a loving father to John Jr., Jeff, and Karen, embracing his role as \u0026quot;Papa\u0026quot; to 11 grandchildren with enthusiasm, sharing in their educational, musical, and sporting adventures. Yet, the true pinnacle of John Kays\u0027 life was his 61-year marriage to his college sweetheart Judy, a love that transcended time and space. Together, they illuminated the world with their adventures, showcasing a love that stood as a testament to the Divine. John Michael Kays has left an indelible mark on the hearts of those who knew him. As we bid him farewell, we celebrate a life well-lived, rich with love, laughter, and the everlasting echoes of the \u0026quot;Saints Go Marching In.\u0026quot; May his “Let’s Go” spirit continue to guide us, just as his light will forever shine in our memories. John will be laid to rest in a National Cemetery later this year. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the American Heart Association or Alzheimer’s Association."
