David Kenneth Wise, M.D. Obituary

Dr. Kenneth Wise of Williston, Florida passed away peacefully on January 9th, 2024 surrounded by family. Kenny was born in Dunnellon, FL on May 9th 1935, to the late DeWitt and Virginia Wise. He graduated from Dunnellon High School in 1953. He went on to serve in the United States Army. After serving for two years, he then graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Pharmacy in 1960. Kenny graduated from medical school at the University of Miami in 1964. After practicing as a General Practitioner in Dunnellon for a year, he moved to practice in Chiefland until 1976. He then practiced in Williston, where he fondly provided care to his patients from 1976 through 2014. Throughout his 50 years serving the Levy County community, he was loved by both patients and coworkers alike. Kenny was an enthusiast for yard work and a master handyman. He kindly and patiently hosted large family gatherings throughout his lifetime, and created a welcoming home full of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He excelled as “Grandad,” always celebrating and supporting his grandchildren with love and encouragement. He will be remembered by those he loved for his ability to keep them laughing with his quick wit and dry sense of humor. He was preceded in death by his beloved daughter, Ginger Wise Patsy, and siblings DeWitt Wise Jr and Diana Wise Savage. He is survived by his loving wife Cathy Linda Wise, brother Allen Wise, sister-in-law Linda Wise, and children Margaret Wise Samuels (Benford), David Wise (Allison), Derrick Wise (Nikki), and Marty Greenlee (Nancy), son-in-law, Rick Patsy, twelve grandchildren, and one great grandson. We will celebrate Kenny’s life with a service at Roberts Funeral Home of Dunnellon on Sunday, January 14th at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that donations be made to Haven Hospice of Chiefland, FL.
