CJE Ann Melton remarks on loss of Jimmy Reliford

Judge asks community to hold the Reliford family in their prayers, as the community mourns the passing of its most famous son
A Quiet will fall over Columbia today for services for Jimmy Reliford and for the long cortege which will carry him Home to Antioch

Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton, in closing remarks at the Adair County Fiscal Court meeting last night, reminded all of a great loss to the community - and to the world. "It was a sad day Saturday," she said, "when we learned of the death of Jimmy Reliford." She reminded the court of the economic contributions he had made to the community through his vast business enterprises and the many people he employed. She spoke to, of his humanity. "He was a guy who would give you the shirt off his back," she said.

"We're going to miss him." She asked that the community hold the Reliford family in their prayers.

Services are today, Wednesday, August 14, 2013, at 1pmCT, at Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home, 210 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY. There will be eulogies by Dr. Phil Aaron, Craig Higgins and Bro. Bobby Withers. Obituary: Jimmy Reliford, Adair County, KY (1950-2013)
