Obituary for Kenneth Dean Schuelein

Kenneth (Kenny) Dean Schuelein, 83 years old, of Elk City, OK went to be with his Lord after a brief battle with lung cancer. He was surrounded with love and good memories by his wife Maxine and daughter Melanie in the last hours of his life.
Kenneth was born in Pond Creek, OK on June 20, 1935 to Herman Schuelein and Doris Spencer.
He graduated from high school in Lamont, OK and achieved a Radio and TV
Technology degree from Okmulgee Technical School in 1955.
Harness Appliance was where he started his career as a radio and TV repairman. Patterson Cable System was his next employment, followed by Sammons Communications. He also owned Western TV Relay which provided TV signal to Elk City, Erick and Cheyenne for many years. During his 36 years at Sammons Communication he managed the Elk City cable system. The Clinton cable system was also his responsibility for several years.
Kenneth was married to Maxine Jencks on September 2, 1961 in Eastside Baptist Church, Elk City, OK. For 58 years they enjoyed cheering on the Oklahoma Sooner football team and traveling with their daughter, family and friends across the US and Internationally.
He was fascinated with cars, airplanes and sports. The multitude of trophies reflected his skill and passion for go carts in the early years. Other hobbies included shooting trap, golf and the love of flowers, plants and bird watching. Later in life his favorite pastime was playing golf with his buddies. He was the oldest active playing member of Elk City Country Club.
Through his involvement in the community over the years, he touched the lives of many people with his inspiration and leadership. At the First Christian Church he was a Board member, deacon, elder and loyal volunteer. Additionally, he was past president of the Lions Club and the Elks Lodge, just to name a few.
Kenny, as he was called by many of his friends, lived life to the fullest and had a positive outlook even in the toughest situations.
