Kenneth Stanley Wilkes, 71, of Brevard, entered into eternal rest June 18, 2019, at The Elizabeth House in Flat Rock.

Born to the late Marvin and Helen Wilkes, he was one of six children, three of whom, Shirley Ann Payne, Harold Norris Wilkes and Florence Denise Robinson, predeceased him.

In addition to being a loving father, brother, and son, he was employed at Olin/Ecusta as a chemical mix operator for 33 years. He was also an active member of First Bethel Baptist Church in Brevard.

He was very compassionate about helping those in need by giving rides, opening up his home and giving out food to the community and people in need. He was a dedicated gardener and loved growing flowers as well as produce. To many of his fellow friends he was known as “Godfather.”

He is survived by Francine Wilkes (wife), Kim Wilkes (daughter), Kenneth Wilkes (son), Summer Wilkes (daughter) and Martin Wilkes (son), of Brevard, Asha Wilkes (daughter), of Charlotte; Shaqawala Wilkes (granddaughter), Jalen Wilkes (grandson), Shanya Whiteside (granddaughter), Kenneth Wilkes (grandson), Skyla and Sierra Wilkes (granddaughters); Marvin Craig Wilkes (brother), of Pisgah Forest, Mary Alice Mooney (sister), of Brevard and Douglas Canty (brother), of Charlotte; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Services will be held Saturday, June 22, 2019, at 2 p.m., with visitation at 1 p.m. at First Bethel Baptist Church.

Professional services rendered by the Donald I. Roseboro Funeral and Cremation Service of Flat Rock.
