Kenneth Leroy Repine(1944 - 2014)

Ken Repine

1944 - 2014

Ken Repine, born November 24, 1944 in Dayton, Ohio was healed of his cancer at 4 p.m. on February 25, 2014 when he entered the Gates of Heaven.

He was met at the gates by his father and mother, Frank and Ruby Repine and his sister, Joyce, who passed away as an infant and his father-in-law, Johnnie Kinsley.

Loved ones left to cherish Ken's memories include his wife of 45 years, Wanda Kinsley Repine; his two children Michelle Repine Bond (Peter) and Mike Repine (Jennifer) along with the "magnificent seven"; Jackson and Jenna Bond, Brenn, Kira, Zane, Cole and Reid Repine. Ken had many roles in life; son, brother, husband and daddy but the role he cherished the most was that of Papa to his seven grandchildren.

He is also survived by his sisters; Pam Repine Elmore (Floyd) and Pat Repine Kieft (Bob) and by Wanda's family: Harry Kinsley (Gayle), Donna Phillips (Bruce) and Dora Thomley (Wayne) and his mother-in-law, Virginia Kinsley.

Ken retired from the Escambia County Sheriff's Department in 2003 after thirty years. He truly enjoyed serving and protecting the people of this county. Ken's retirement gave him many opportunities to cheer on his grandchildren at their many sporting events. He also greatly enjoyed bass fishing.

Ken was a member of First Baptist of Cottage Hill and Pensacola Hawg Hunters Bass Club and a former member of Panhandle Bass Club.

The family will receive friends at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North, 1000 S. Hwy 29, Cantonment, FL on Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The family has asked that anyone wishing to pay respects attend the visitation. Ken will be cremated and there will be no funeral service. The family requests that instead of sympathy cards you bring a letter with a fond memory of Ken to place in his fishing basket.
