Somerset, Kentucky

Gary Lynn Stogsdill, age 71, of Cannonball Road, Somerset, KY, passed away on Wednesday, November 22, 2023 at U.K. Hospital.

He was the son of the late Herman and Pauline Stogsdill, grandson of Victor and Ona Stogsdill of Somerset. He was married to Sharon Lynn (Meece) Stogsdill on December 11, 1971.

He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was a former employee of Crane Plumbing until it closed. But most of all, he was a saved Christian and a member of New Hope Baptist Church. He taught Sunday School and was Sunday School Superintendent at Piney Grove Baptist #1 for many years. He always made sure his children were in church. He was an ordained deacon.

Bill) Hall and Amber (Lucas) Scrimager; one son, Gary Joe Stogsdill; five grandkids, Thomas Seth and Elijah Aaron Stogsdill, Ethan Addison, Adilynn Marie, and Breanna Rose Scrimager. He had special nicknames for them: Seth, Elijah, and Ethan were called "Bub", Adi was called "Baby Girl", and Bre was "Knot Head".

His son-in-laws, Bill and Lucas were treated just like his own sons. He is also survived by four sisters, Mary Lou (Clint) Ridner, Sandra Stogsdill, Brenda (Jerry) Miller, and Judy (Doug) Ridner; one brother, Jerry (Emmie) Stogsdill; one sister-in-law, Kathy Akin; two brothers-in-law, Lincoln (Buddy) Meece and Dannie Jones; and many nieces, nephews, and a dear friend, Ed Blake.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws, Lincoln & Anna Meece; two brothers, Mitchell and Charles Stogsdill; three brothers-in-law, Butch Weatherford, Bobby Akin, and Lloyd Smith; three sisters-in-law, Sharon E. Stogsdill, Melda Meece Jones, and Brenda Smith; and one sister, Connie Lay.
