Gary Karr

CORBIN —

Gary Reed Karr, 71, of Keavy, completed his journey on this earth on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, at Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin. He was born on Aug. 23, 1941, to Jim and Minnie Harville Karr and was married to Bertie Roark Karr, his beloved wife and best friend for over 51 years.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by three sons, John Glenn Karr and wife Rhonda, of Keavy, James Addison (Paul) Karr and wife Dodie, of Keavy, and Gary Ray Karr, of Louisville; seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was also survived by one sister, Nadine Fields, of Keavy, and two brothers, Larry Karr and Jerry Karr, of Keavy. He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant sister, Rosa Lee.

Gary loved the Lord and was a faithful member of Locust Grove Christian Church and will be so greatly missed by his many brothers and sisters in Christ.

Gary was a farmer and loved his land and working in it. His greatest wish for himself was to work on his farm until the Lord called him home. The Lord blessed Gary and granted him that wish. Gary will always be remembered as a hard working man that never met a stranger he couldn’t talk with and would probably claim kin to them by the end of the conversation.

The family will receive friends at Hart Funeral Home, located at 1011 Master Street in Corbin, on Friday, Nov. 16, 2012, from 6-9 p.m. Memorial services for Gary will be conducted at the funeral home chapel on Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, at 1 p.m. with Bro. Rob Hale and Bro. Roger Miller officiating. Burial will follow at Locust Grove Cemetery.
