Keith Gabehart, Taylor Co., KY native (1936-2014)<'b>

He was a retired accounting professor at Western Kentucky University. He graduated from George Peabody College in Nashville, TN and did his doctorate work at Georgia State Teacher College.

The devotion of the Gabeharts to the Creator and to each other gave them opportunity to present Christ in many churches with the musical talent they were given.

  • His daughter: Becky Jill Gabehart-Croft and husband Cleveland

  • A granddaughter: Rebekah Grace Croft
