Loving Tribute from the Family of Mr. Ken Allison
Mr. Ken Allison was one great husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. Ken was born in Taylor County on October 18, 1945 to the late Ernest and Nellie Pike Allison. After graduating from Campbellsville High School in 1963, he served in Germany with the Armed Forces from 1963 to 1966. Upon his return he attended Campbellsville College. On December 15, 1967, he married Betty Lou Clark. The next year their daughter Gina Catherine (Katy) was born. Katy married Don Ingram, and they are the parents of Ken and Lou's beloved grandchildren, Allison (Allie) Ingram and John Clark Ingram. Ken's family was one of the most important parts of his life, and he was devoted to all of them.
Ken was a member of the Greensburg United Methodist Church and served in various positions on different committees. He taught the Adult Seekers Sunday School Class for ten years. However, one of his favorite positions was serving as the church custodian after he retired from General Telephone. He was employed by General Telephone for Thirty years. In addition, he served on the Greensburg City Council and the Jane Todd Crawford Hospital Board.
Ken was an avid fisherman who shared his love for the sport with his family and friends. When he wasn't outdoors, he dedicated much of his time to volunteerism, especially the Green County Ministerial Association Food Pantry. Above all, our husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend knew he was blessed and wanted to share that with others. His smile was known by everyone. Many times we hear the words "a good man," but Ken Allison truly was one.
Ken is survived by his wife, daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren. In addition, he is survived by two sisters, Nadine Russell and her husband Jimmy of Parker, Colorado, and JoAnn Durrett of Columbia, Kentucky; a sister-in-law Pat Sutton and her husband Randall of Greensburg; his mother-in-law: Gin Clark of Greensburg; three nephews; and many friends and loved ones.
