LIKENS, Nicholas "Nick" Kyle   Age, 13, of Georgetown, brave warrior, lover of life, and skateboard enthusiast, died at his home after a two year battle with Neuroblastoma cancer. He touched many lives and always had a smile on his face. He absolutely loved to skateboard, and any time he wasn't in the hospital or clinic, he was skateboarding, on a quest to improve his skills. He told us that skateboarding was his therapy for dealing with his cancer, and that it actually took his mind off of his pain. The one thing more important than skateboarding, to Nick, was his family and friends. He loved to have a good time, but he would also do anything for his loved ones if they were upset or hurt. Nick was very caring and always thought of others before himself. Survivors include his parents, Shannon Leigh Schuller Likens and Dwayne Likens; a sister, Morganne "Alex" Likens; his grandparents, Connie Jones, Golda Mae DeRossett, and Larry Van Hoose; his great- grandmother, Dorothy Shannon Jones; his aunts and uncles, Gene and Tara Toole; Paul and Megan Van Hoose, Nathan Schuller, and Barry and Vivian DeRossett; his cousins, Lauren, Katherine, Gabriel and Zara Van Hoose, Charlie and Andrew DeRossett, Olivia and Chloe Toole; and his beloved pets, Checkers and Scooby.   Funeral services were at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, at Johnson's Funeral Home. Burial was in the Frankfort Cemetery by Pastor Steve Flynn.  Casket bearers were: Michael Truitt, Larry Van Hoose, Paul Van Hoose, Barry DeRossett, Gene Toole, and Nathan Schuller.  Visitation was at the funeral home.  We are forever indebted to Dr. Wagner, Lars and Cincinnati Children's Hospital, for the love and devotion in providing Nick the very best care possible.  Donations should be made to the "Nick Likens, Skateboarding Fund," at Central Bank, 100 W. Main Street, Georgetown, Ky. 40324.  This fund will be set up to provide skateboards for underprivileged children, to give them hope through skateboarding, as Nick experienced.  www.johnsonsfuneralhome.com   (FCT'S Sept. 21, 2007)

Turner, Rosemary (Sherrill) Reid, and Jack (Peggy) Little. Carlos was the oldest of 12 children born to Oliver and Dorothy Dean Warren Little. Deceased are Mike (Billie) Little, Willie (Reba) Little, Elsie (James) King, Paul (Lorraine) Little, and Gracie Little. Carlos became a lineman for Consolidated Coal Company at Jenkins. He learned this skill from, and worked with his father, for many years. He was in the first draft set in motion for world war II. His occupation as a lineman became a skill that served his country. He became a tech sergeant with the responsibility of keeping communication lines open during battle. Although memories fade, he remembered the names of every man under his command, and kept them in his memories. He served in six battlefields-West Africa, Germany, France, Sicily, Italy, and Austria. He received seven bronze stars, Theater ribbon, one bronze arrowhead, American Defense medal, and good conduct medal. We honor our brother as a veteran and hero of World War II. Carlos became the owner of gas stations in Huntington, W.Va., Hi Hat, and owner of a restaurant/gas station at Lowmansville. He retired from C&O at Raceland. It was at this time that he turned his love for cars into a hobby, and found his greatest enjoyment in belonging and traveling with the Mustang Car Club of Ashland. He cherished close friendships with the Mustang Club members, and with members who helped him with his dream of restoring cars, especially Don Bowman, and Lowell and Keith Carrico. He also, treasured this special time with his brother, Paul, and his close friend, Ott Ratliff.  Carlos was a member of the Kenova Baptist Church, in Huntington, W.Va. When he moved to Kentucky, he donated ownership of his home in Huntington, to the Kenova Church. His devotion as a member of the church was an important part of his life. He served as moderator at the Bethany Baptist Church.  Unable to take care of himself, he had the loving care of Rosemary (caregiver), and his sisters, Myrtle and Aliene. Also, Robert, Pam, and Stevie Reid. Jack was also there for him, when he was in Huntington Hospital. To all who touched his life, treasure that time, and keep the memories. I would like to read from Psalms 103: As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place known it no more. But the steadfast love of the lord is from everlasting to everlasting. Funeral services for Carlos Little will be conducted Wednesday, October 11, at 1 p.m., at the Hall Funeral Home Chapel, in Martin, with Regular Baptist ministers officiating. Burial will follow in the Boyd Cemetery, in Price, under the professional care of the Hall Funeral Home.  (FCT'S 10-11-2006)

LOGAN, Clarence Larry   Age, 65, completed his journey on this planet, and left for his heavenly reward, this 29th day of May, in the year of our Lord 2007. He was a member of the Tates Creek Christian Church in Lexington.  Born in his beloved Maytown, December 14, 1941, Larry was the most gregarious, loyal, generous, and entertaining of men. He was a “man for all seasons,” one to be counted upon by family and friends, one with integrity and faith. He created laughter where there was none, and took ordinary travels and events, and spun them into the most delightful of stories. He was bigger than life, a strapping and vibrant man who loved and laughed and cried with the deepest of feelings, and with no shame.  First and foremost, he loved his precious wife, Nancy, and would tell a stranger how beautiful and wonderful she was. Further, he deeply loved his two sons: Steve and John; and his mother, Stella; as well as his sister, Glenda, whom he called “Sis”; and his grandchildren. He also loved the rest of us, his extended family and friends; the University of Kentucky basketball; May-town High School in Floyd County; his home in Florida, as well as his home in Lexington; Mardi Gras in New Orleans; and his travels with Nancy, especially the many trips throughout the western part of our nation; and the good times with his friends at the racetrack.  Larry graduated from the University of Kentucky in 1966, with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. He was the assistant director of Probation and Parole (field service manager) for the Commonwealth; director of Donor Services and Director of Public Relations for the Central Kentucky Blood Center; served as probation and parole officer for the state of Kentucky; worked as a consultant for the Kentucky Peer Review Organization Inc.; was the executive director of Big Brothers in Lexington; director of Outlook House; assistant unit director for Kentucky Children’s Home in Louisville; supervisor and coordinator for Kentucky Village in Lexington; and was a juvenile counselor in Franklin and Jessamine counties. In 1982, Larry founded Logan Security Inc., in Lexington, and served as president and chief operating officer. He retired in 2000.  Larry was preceded in death by his father, Clarence Logan; and by his brother, Bill Logan.  We are bereaved, but we are comforted knowing that Larry is with Our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven.  He is survived by his beloved wife, Nancy; two sons: Steve and John; his mother, Stella Logan; his sister, Glenda Kuck; his grandchildren, Joshua, Matthew, and Gracie; and his daughter-in-law, Carolyn Logan. A celebration of his life will take place at 10:00 am on Saturday, June 2, 2007, at Kerr Brothers Funeral Home on Harrodsburg Road, with burial to follow in Lexington Cemetery.
