December 11, 2009 - March 5, 2014
A true hero and inspiration was called home on March 5, 2014. Kase Albert Powell, born December 11, 2009 passed away after a courageous three year fight against cancer. While Kase was a somewhat quiet and introspective child, his purpose here was loud and clear. Kases fight was well documented throughout the world through print, television and social media avenues as a result of the many people he touched during his impactful stay with us. His journey enlightened many to the magnitude of childhood cancers and empowered those all too aware of its far reaching affects. He has inspired many from all reaches of life that include the young and old, elite athletes and others fighting everyday obstacles in their lives. The little boy affectionately known as Kaseman, with his bright blue eyes, glowing smile and easy gate would make a room light up at the mere sight of him. Kase loved playing with his twin brother Knox, being pushed in the swing, playing quietly with his favorite toys, flipping through books and watching cartoons while relaxing with family and friends. He also loved his time with teachers and classmates while attending school at Christ the King Lutheran School in Palm Coast, FL.
Kases Krusade will continue to endure through his mother, father, and twin brother; Amy Bass Powell, Kenneth A. Powell, Jr. and Knox Anthony Powell of Palm Coast, FL; his maternal grandparents, Ed and Karen Bass of Havana, FL; his paternal grandparents Kenneth A. Powell, Sr. along with wife and daughter Dewy and Kendall respectfully of Panama City Beach, FL; paternal grandparents Joan Peacock Collier and husband Fernando Recio, of Tallahassee, FL; paternal great-grandmother Mary Pat Peacock, of Tallahassee, FL; maternal great-grandmother Dorothy Bass, of Chattahoochee, FL; Uncle Edward Neal Bass, III and cousins Kinleigh and E.N., of Tallahassee, FL; Aunt Rebecca Powell Mayhann and cousin Kelby, of Tallahassee, FL; and countless others that have been gracious in their support that we consider family.
A celebration of love and remembrance will be held on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 2:00pm; Bradfordville First Baptist Church, 6494 Thomasville Road, Tallahassee, FL 32312. Kase is in the care of Faith Funeral Home (850-539-4300 or www.faithfuneralhome.com)

February 21, 1953 - March 3, 2014
Roger Dennis Green was gathered in the loving arms of his Father and embarked on his eternal journey on March 3, 2014. Dennis was born February 21, 1953 in Chipley, FL. He was 61 years old and a retired master carpenter. Dennis was inspired by his maternal grandfather (who was a carpenter) who told him Jesus was a carpenter-it is a noble profession. So, at the age of 12, Dennis began working with his Grandaddy and learned to roof houses. He went on to attend Lively Technical Center and became a journeyman. Evidence of his expert work as a builder and finisher can be found in many commercial structures and residences in Tallahassee and as far away as Arkansas, Alabama and New Jersey. He was one of a team of specially selected construction workers that built Doak Campbell Stadium, one of the most intriguing college football stadiums in the world. Dennis built his mothers two story home and also built his own home for himself & family from the ground up. He was always happiest when he had a hammer, saw or other tools humming. His love for hunting inspired him to buy his land near the national forest where he built his house. Dennis requested that his family and friends remember him as a loving, compassionate man who loved life and everyone who was a part of it. He especially adored his grandchildren and spent as much time as possible with them. He leaves behind one daughter, Denise Green Marini, her husband Diego, one granddaughter Monique & one grandson, Mavrick, all of Tallahassee. Also surviving are his mother Carolyn Spears along with her husband Lewis, of Tallahassee and his father James E. Green of Woodville, two sisters, Sheri Green of Tallahassee and LeAnne Short, her husband Greg both of Valdosta, GA. and two brothers, J.E. Jimbo Green of Pensacola and Jack McLeod along with his life partner Robert Kendrick both of Tallahassee, two nieces, Jackie Tillman & Jamie Henderson, two nephews, Jessie Bishop & Tyler Henderson and his stepson Vincent Smith.

Planning a Funeral
Life ChoicesMost of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.
Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own arrangements.
Please call us at 850-539-4300 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.
Why Pre-Plan?Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.
Immediate ArrangementsIn Time of Need
We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making immediate arrangements.
Please call us at 850-539-4300 to make arrangements in person with a caring, professional Funeral Director.
