Louis Kenneth Lindqvist

fNovember 14, 1932 february 22, 1998

On November 14, 1932 Louis Kenneth Lindqvist was born on St.
Thomas, Virgin Islands to Louis Emanuel and Elsa Augusta Vance
Lindqvist. He attended the Lucinda A. Million Private School where he
received an elementary education, then attended Charlotte Amalie
High School from which he graduated in 1950. Kenneth completed his
education by earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Hus-
bandry from Cornell University's College of Agriculture and Life Sci-
ences, on June 13, 1955.

Following college graduation in 1955, Kenneth returned to St. Tho-
mas to become head of his family's business, Louis Lindqvist Sales
Corporation, and to manage his family's farm. Also in 1955, he mar-
ried Joyce Leander Douglas. They raised a daughter, Candace Maria
and a son, Louis Mark Godfrey.

In later years Kenneth moved on from the family business to become
a Real Estate Broker. He pursued a career in Real Estate until his
illness in 1992. In addition, he was an active member of the St.
Thomas Jaycees.

Many words have been used to describe Kenneth, including stub-
born, smart, controversial, kind, difficult, loving, eccentric, and yet
benevolent. He always had faith in God and looked to the church for
spiritual support. Throughout his many struggles and triumphs in life
he referred to the following prayer:

God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change ...
Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the differ-

Most of all Kenneth enjoyed being outdoors and the company of
friends and family. He will always be remembered. He will be missed.
Rest in peace.

The Charlotte Amalie High School class of 1950 was blessed with
having many unique personalities of which L. Kenneth Lindqvist was
most noted. As class president he worked diligently to ensure that our
contribution to the history of C.A.H.S. would be remembered in the
annals of time.
"Ken" as he was affectionately called by his classmates, served on
numerous committees and was involved in all aspects of campus life
which he thoroughly enjoyed. That was Ken, the boy.
Kenneth, the Man, will long be remembered for his service and love
to his fellowman, his humanitarianism to those less fortunate than he
in our community.
We, his classmates extend our most profound sympathy to his family
and friends. May he rest in eternal peace.
Angela R. Durant, The Class of 1950

L. Kenneth Lindqvist was an active and dynamic member of the
C.A.H.S. Class of 1950. Since he was an outgoing and "take charge"
person, we, the members of the Class, elected him as Class President.
I kept in touch with Kenneth throughout the years, but for a while I
did not see or hear from him. On inquiry, I found out that he was ill at
home for a long time and later was hospitalized.
I visited him at the hospital, and although seriously ill, he always
tried to communicate with me, and succeeded in getting me to under-
stand him.
God has now released him from many years of suffering and pain.
Our class members will miss him. May his soul now rest in eternal
Gloria H. Davis
Classmates and Secretary, Class of 1950
