Mr. Fay Dudley Overstreet age 83.
Obituary lovingly written by the family

Out of the ten children born to Hattie Lee and Dudley Overstreet, Fay Dudley was the only one who was not born in Liberty, Kentucky.

His parents had moved to the Cincinnati area but returned to their house on Beldon Avenue where the Mike and Brenda Carmicle house now stands in Liberty, KY, when Fay was less than two years old.Faye passed away December 28, 2011 at the age of 83.

He graduated from Liberty High School in 1947, served for years in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean Conflict, graduated from the University of Kentucky with a bachelors degree in education, graduated from Xavier University in Cincinnati with a masters degree in school administration. He was employed 26 years by the New Miami Board of Education, teaching six years and served as high school principal the remaining 2o years. After retiring from education, he worked part time with the Butler County Employment Training Administration for several years.

Fay loved music, especially country gospel. He had a vast collection of 78's. 33's, 45's, cassette tapes and CD's. He would take his favorite song from a recording and transfer it to a tape, and add his thoughts or some information about the song which made the tape more interesting.

He also liked to write and submitted several articles to the Kentucky Explorer about growing up in Liberty and also what Liberty was like during World War II.

He leaves his wife of 59 years, Ann Morgan, and the following:
  • Daughter and son in law: Leanne and Tim Myers

  • Grandchildren: Jessie , Grayson, Laurel and Kenton

  • A brother: Ray Lewis Overstreet

  • And several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Hattie Lee and Dudley Overstreet, siblings Lela (Ed) Henson, Mabel Carpenter, Stella (Earl) Wethington, Mildred Monk, Ida Lee (C. J.)Thomas, Bobby Joe (Jean) Overstreet, and two infant brothers.

Arrangements entrusted to McKinney-Brown Funeral Home with guestbook available at McKinney Brown Home, 752 Campbellsville Street, Liberty, KY.
