Gerald Wethington

Gerald D. Wethington, 78, passed away Tuesday, December 31, at his home in Lawrenceburg. 

Born in Bradfordsville on March 26, 1935, he was the son of the late Jackson Cephus (J.C.) and Verna Lee Atwood Wethington and was also preceded in death by a sister, Juanita Mason and two brothers, Kirby Buck and Ewell Wethington.

Mr. Wethington is survived by three daughters, Sharon Lee Hill (Ronnie), Vivian Ann Richmond (Jonathan) and Donna Carpenter; two sons, Lloyd Wethington and Jerry Dwayne Wethington; two sisters, Betty Jean Wright and Lucille Games; 17 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. 

Following his high school graduation, he served in both the Marines and the Navy prior to spending over 30 years as a Wildlife Aide for the Ky. Dept. of Fish and Wildlife. A long-time Frankfort resident, he loved fishing, hunting, clogging and attending Native American Pow Wows, but above all he was a devoted family man.

Services for Mr. Wethington were held Saturday in Rogers Funeral Home, followed by interment in the Sunset Memorial Gardens. Online condolences can be made at

  • Sorry to hear that Gerald has gone, but not forgotten.  Over the years it was easy to see he was a wonderful man.  His love for Christ was seen in the life he lived and the love he had for people.  He was a Solider of the Cross.  I will miss him.
