Charles W. Kable Sr., a retired furniture salesman who had earlier been an executive chef and bed-and-breakfast owner, died of cancer June 16 at Delaware Hospice Center in Milford. He was 61.

Charles Warriner Kable was born in Baltimore and raised in Catonsville.

After graduating from Catonsville High School in 1965, he went to work in furniture sales at the old Hutzler's department store on Howard Street. He was later promoted to a buyer in the store's home furnishings department.

From 1983 to 1995, he was co-owner with William "Mac" Macklin of the Banking House Inn in Milford, Del.

After selling the inn in the early 1990s, he was executive chef at Sydney's, a Rehoboth Beach, Del., restaurant, for several years.

In the late 1990s, he became a display designer at Johnny Janosik's Furniture Store in Laurel, Del.

He later was a retail salesman at Mitchell's Furniture Store, also in Laurel, where he worked until 2007 when he retired on a medical disability.

Mr. Kable enjoyed cooking and entertaining. He also liked working on decorating and landscaping projects at his Rehoboth Beach home.

Surviving are a son, Charles W. Kable Jr. of Howell, Mich.; four brothers, Allan M. Kable III of Sanford, N.C., Floyd M. Kable of Atlanta, Steven D. Kable of Princess Anne and David L. Kable of Baltimore; and two grandchildren. A marriage to the former Linda Schnebelen ended in divorce.
