Obituary for C. Kenneth Fluke

C. Kenneth Fluke, 84, of Fairfield, PA passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at his home surrounded by his loving family.


He was born June 20, 1939, in Altoona, PA at Mercy Hospital the son of the late Clair and June Lovell Fluke. Ken was predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Mary Carnell Fluke in 2020 and by his step-mother, Constance “Connie” Gomes Fluke.


A loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Ken enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1958 to 1962. He worked for AT&T at the Defense Information Systems Agency Joint Staff Support Center (Site-R) from 1962 to 1995. He started out as a technician and worked up to a supervisor during his career. After retiring early, he returned as an Airforce Group contractor for SOZA from 1997 to 2004. He was an active member of the Fairfield Lions, a lifetime member of the Fairfield Amvets, and a longtime member of St. John Lutheran Church in Fairfield, PA.


Ken was a kind man with a gentle heart, always willing to lend a hand. A caring father, who never raised his voice, enjoyed working on cars, and the challenge of fixing appliances. He loved the outdoors and riding motorcycles and later in life driving his convertible Miata. Ken especially enjoyed hunting and fishing with his sons. His grandchildren recall how he made the best grilled cheese sandwiches. He was truly a man of many talents. Most of all, his children remember how Ken loved to spend time with Mary and taking many bus trips throughout the United States.


Ken is survived by four “favorite” children, listed in no particular order; Amy E. Fritz of Fairfield, PA, Charles K. Fluke, Jr. and his wife Beth of Bolivia, NC, Jason C. Fluke and his fiancé Tracy of New Cumberland, PA, Ana M. Fluke and her partner Yelena Kaplan of Kent, OH, seven grandchildren; Jessica Ilko and her husband Matthew, Ashely Wivell, Shante Wivell, J. Bradley Fluke, Nathan Fluke, Kyla Fluke, Eliana Fluke, six great grandchildren; Madelynn Ilko, Dalilah Ilko, Claire Ilko, Star Wivell, Dakota Ellenburg, Skylena Ellenburg, five brothers and sisters; Barb Torok and her husband Ron, Kay Pickle and her husband Ed, Bill Fluke and his wife Michelle, Donna Shue, and Sally Burkholder and her husband Pat; sister-in-law, Marcia Kay (Snair) Erwin; and numerous nieces and nephews.


The family would like to thank the extraordinary nurses, respiratory team, and Dr. Polichard at Waynesboro Hospital and the staff at the Chambersburg Office of ProMedica Senior Care services. The family gives them and everyone else who cared for Ken their greatest gratitude.


Funeral Services will be held Friday, October 13, 2023, at St. John Lutheran Church in Fairfield, PA at Noon with Rev. Scott Zimmerer officiating. The service will be a celebration of life for both Ken and Mary Fluke, who passed during COVID in April 2020. It was said once that Ken and Mary were “twin flames” and now they are reunited for eternity in heaven. Interment will be in Fairfield Union Cemetery, where he will receive military honors for his service. There will be a viewing at the church from 11:00 AM until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers memorials can be made to St. John Lutheran Church, 13 East Main Street, Fairfield, PA 17320. Online obituary and condolences available at monahanfuneralhome.com.
