Joe Gadberry, Adair County, KY (1939-2017)
He had professed his faith in Christ, he was a retired box factory supervisor in Chicago, Illinois, he served in the US Army, was a Life Member of the National Rifle Association, he loved riding motorcycles and four wheelers and was a rabbit hunter. Joe Gadberry had a rarely equalled talent for entertaining and could hold impromptu audiences rapt for hours, recalling events from his early life on Earls Ridge, his Walnut Grove School days, and of his Chicago years. His timing, expectant pauses, wit and humor - so distinct to his home territory, where story telling is almost a competitive sport - were his trademarks. He was blessed with a voice so memorable one wondered why he never had his own national radio show. Yet all who knew him knew why he most likely did not: He lived his life exactly the way he wanted to.. And acquaintances loved him for that. He was the real deal. He was an authentic, no pretense Adair County success.
