"On the morning of February 10, 2024, Dudley Frank Stokes, born in Westgate-on-Sea, Kent, England on March 3, 1925, passed away at home in Palm Coast, Florida, at the age of 98. Dudley was raised in the United Kingdom and served in the Royal Signal Corps of the British Army towards the end of World War II. After being posted to Gibraltar by the army, in 1947 he married the love of his life, Marylou, to whom he was married for over 70 years, until her passing in March of 2018. In 1955 he crossed the Atlantic on the Queen Elizabeth, travelling with his wife and two young sons. While settling in New York, Long Island, he started his career with Western Electric, working his way up to Senior Engineer, until his retirement in 1987. Dudley and his, now, family of 4 (3 boys and 1 girl) relocated to Maryland in 1965, continuing to work for the same company. Before and after his retirement, he loved playing golf, cards, and cruising with his wife and friends. In his most recent years, he enjoyed listening to audible books, and watching his favorite television shows which included westerns and his familiar British military bands. Most of all, throughout his entire life, his first priority, and what he received the most pleasure from, was spending time together with his wife and family. Dudley is survived by his children, Ronald Stokes and his wife Janeen, of Mont Vernon, New Hampshire; Alan Stokes and his wife Donna, of Palm Coast, Florida; Gary Stokes and his wife, Jennifer of Bel Air, Maryland; and Deborah Shanahan and her husband, Michael of Supply, North Carolina. Dudley had seven grandchildren: Jason Stokes, Samantha Miklaszewski, Kirsten Stokes Egan, Harry Stokes, Allison Stokes, Jason Shanahan and Amy Shanahan Santoro.

Lloyd George Levy

Jan 24, 1933 - Feb 20, 2024

location-icon

Palm Coast, FL

"LIFE OF LLOYD GEORGE LEVY Born to Thaddeus and Victoria Levy, on January 24, 1933, their 3rd son, Lloyd George (Honeyboy) made his entrance into this world, in Kingston, Jamaica.\u0026nbsp; At an early age, he accepted the Lord and got baptized in the SDA church. In 1942 the Levy’s moved to Harkers Hall in St. Catherine. Being the first Seventh-day Adventists there, his mother invited the few neighborhood children to Sabbath School in their home. In the process of time, when a church was formed, Lloyd, being still a teenager, became involved in the worship services and was a very effective Missionary Volunteer (now Adventist Youth Society) leader.\u0026nbsp; At that time, MV meetings always ended with vespers. Every Sabbath, Lloyd closed vespers with the song, ‘Blest be the Tie That Binds’. He was a good example for the younger ones. He attended Sargeantville Elementary School where he received his early education. In later years, he relocated to Kingston, then attended West Indies College in Mandeville where he made many friends and acquaintances. In 1955, Lloyd and Jean met while she was a student at Kingsway High School and they both were members of Kencot SDA Church.\u0026nbsp; Their friendship culminated into marriage on December 30, 1959.\u0026nbsp; From this union they had three children, Sebastian, Sharon (now deceased) and Dahlia Levy Palmer. Lloyd and his family moved from Jamaica to Brooklyn, New York and then on to Queens. While living in New York, they attended the Hanson Place SDA Church of which Lloyd served in many capacities, including being an elder, health and temperance leader, and other areas of service as well.\u0026nbsp; He spent 31 years worshiping and working with the Hanson Place Church family. He was a salesman from Jamaica days and when he relocated to the United States he continued in that line of work and was involved in many areas of the sales field.\u0026nbsp;Being the health-conscious person that he was, he became a vegetarian. This idea led him to mix his love of sales and his healthy lifestyle together which steered him in the direction of opening a vegetarian restaurant and health food store. He introduced vegetarian living to the community in which he served.\u0026nbsp; He not only served hot vegetarian meals and fresh vegetable juices, but he made the vegetarian items available to those he served. Religious books were also available, and he was frequently asked questions as to his beliefs and benefits of vegetarianism.\u0026nbsp; He was a friend to everyone and called everyone his friend. Many of the people in the neighborhood knew him to be a friend to all.\u0026nbsp; He recognized everyone who passed by, waving to them. He did not like the topography of Florida, but finally decided to relocate to Palm Coast with his wife in 2001. Here he found his niche and started working on ideas to enhance the lives of those whom he could help in any and every way. He was influential in many aspects of the functioning of the church.\u0026nbsp; The Palm Coast Church at that time had mostly senior members, so he thought of forming a Senior’s Association, which he did. This association provided many ways of keeping the seniors together. To name a few of the things provided were church programs – on Sabbaths and otherwise – bus trips, banquets, food fairs, concerts, etc. Lloyd was never envious of others but strove to help others to do and be better.\u0026nbsp; He attended West Indies College (now Northern Caribbean University), but was unable to complete his studies. However, he tried to help his brother, Basil, to continue his education. He loved music, both singing and instrumental. Because of this love, he paid for his sister Viviene to take piano lessons. Lloyd always liked gardening and was in his backyard planting all kinds of edible fruit and vegetable products. He possessed a green thumb and a deep connection to the earth. He taught himself the art of gardening, nurturing a wide variety of vegetables and fruits with great skill and dedication. This was his hobby, and he enjoyed the fruit of his labor and shared his harvest with friends and church family. God saw fit to call Lloyd home to be one with the earth in a different sense. He is preceded in death by his parents, Thaddeus \u0026amp; Victoria Levy, his three brothers, Fitzroy, Baron and Basil, and his daughter Sharon. He leaves behind a loving family to cherish his memory, including his wife, Jean Levy; son, Sebastian Levy and daughter-in-law, Pat, daughter, Dahlia Palmer and son-in-law, Pete; sisters, Vivienne McCatty and Norma Priestley (Harry); seven grandchildren, Michelle, Tonya, Lance, Troy, Brianna, Lamar, and Monique; seven great grandchildren, Delancey, Joshua, Benjamin, Kenneth, Alliot and Ethana, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, church family and friends. We will dearly miss our loved one, Lloyd George Levy. May God bless us all, as we await, The Great Reunion!"

Palm Coast, FL

"Carlton Russell Blow, 94, passed away at his home on February 12, 2024 in Palm Coast, FL under the care of Gentiva Hospice. He was surrounded by his daughters Karen King, Laurie Fezette and Tammy Becker, as well as long time neighbor and friend, Jackie Navas. Carlton was born on April 1, 1929 in Ellenburg, NY to Merritt and Mary Ann [nee Cook] Blow. Carl met his first wife, Shirley Prevo and was married for 25 years. They raised ten children: Roger (Eileen) Blow, Sister Deborah Blow, Dianne (Daniel) Rabideau, Terry (Amber Herron) Blow, Karen King, Kathy (Bernard) Whalen, Laurie (James) Fezette, Ricky (Missy) Blow, Tim (Laura) Blow, and Tammy Becker. The Lord blessed Carl and Shirley with 23 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. Carl loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with each and every one of them. After meeting the second love of his life, Joan S. Herring, Carl and Joan were married on May 27, 1983. When they combined families, Donald (Carol) Herring and their children also became a part of the family. Carl will be greatly missed by many generations of family and friends. Heaven has indeed gained another angel... Carl was predeceased by both of his wives, Shirley [nee Prevo] and Joan [nee Herring]; his son-in-law Chris King; and a great-granddaughter, Chloe King. The last of his siblings, Carl outlived all 8 of his brothers and sisters. Carl grew up working on his father\u0027s farm for many years. He also worked on a potato farm and building the St. Lawerence Seaway. Carl later worked at the Cadillac - Oldsmobile Dealership in Plattsburgh, NY as a mechanic; at Agway in Ellenburg Depot and at Wassaic State School as a mechanic for many years. Carl was a mechanic by trade but actually loved working on anyone\u0027s vehicles or giving them advice on the phone. Carl really enjoyed gardening. He grew all sorts of vegetables, but was known best for his prized tomatoes. He also enjoyed watching baseball in his spare time, and could cheer for any team except the NY Yankees. Later in life, he and Joan enjoyed gambling and especially loved to travel- taking cruises to numerous destinations. A social couple, they regularly attended friends’ gatherings when they weren’t hosting themselves. Local friends jokingly called him either ‘The Mayor of Flamingo Drive’ or ‘Mr. Clean’ because you could eat off the floor of his spotless garage! Throughout his life, Carl was a very religious man- and he wore a rosary from the day his wife died in November 2021 until his hands were too swollen to wear it. A memorial service to celebrate Carl’s incredible life will be held on Wednesday, February 21st at 11am at the Palm Coast Bible Church located on 94 Whiteview Parkway, Palm Coast, FL 32164. Immediately following the service, the family will host an onsite luncheon. A livestream option will be available at: https://www.facebook.com/heritagefuneralandcremation In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Carl’s honor to: Shriner\u0027s Hospital for Children * 2900 Rocky Point Rd, Tampa FL 33607 Veterans of Foreign Wars (Post 8696) * 47 Old Kings Rd North, Palm Coast, FL 32137 St Jude\u0027s Children’s Research Hospital * 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105"
