Long-time bankruptcy trustee C. Kenneth still dies
C. Kenneth Still, a longtime trustee in Chattanooga, died Wednesday morning.
Mr. Still chaired a number of notable cases, including the bankruptcy of Hamilton National Bank, one of the largest in the South at the time.
He had finally retired after his wife had health problems.
Administrator Bill Hullander, who recently had lunch with Mr. Still at a restaurant in Apison, praised him.
Local broadcaster Earl Freudenberg said he and City Judge Russell Bean were with Mr Still on April 23 when Mr Freudenberg delivered a speech to the East Brainerd Kiwanis Club.
Rodney Strong, retired lawyer and president of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, said: “When I began practicing law in 1978 and began to deal with bankruptcy cases, I was frequently in front of Mr. Still for the creditors’ meeting to work on Chapter 13 for my clients. Ken had an old Texas Instruments calculator that he used to do his calculations. He seemed a bit gruff but despite all that feeling he was always very helpful and patient with a young lawyer like me. He walked me through the bankruptcy process and taught me how to help my clients through the process. Ken was a great man and a mentor to many. Sorry to hear of his passing. “
Arrangements will be made by Chattanooga Funeral Home.
