Kenneth Frazier Killough

Kenneth Frazier Killough, 72, passed away peacefully Saturday, Dec. 24, 2016 at Baptist South Hospital in Montgomery, Ala., with his family by his side.

Kenneth was born May 12, 1944 in Crenshaw County, Alabama to Lena Grace and Frazier Killough.

He married his wife, Virginia McNaughton, 50 years ago, on June 18, 1966 in Butler County, Ala. Kenneth enjoyed farming and tending to his cattle but his passion was his job. He worked for Newell Road Builders for 50 years and looked forward to going to work every morning. He was a great provider for his family but he also liked to help others.

He is also survived by his four sisters, Shirley (Rick) Banning of Nashville, Tenn., Carolyn (Arnold) Black of Greenville, Ala., Sue (Jack) Boutwell of Alpharetta, Ga, and Bonnie (Rufus) Poole of Greenville, Ala.; his brother, Wayne (Ann) Killough of Greenville, Ala.; his sister-in-law, Gayle Killough of Greenville, Ala., and many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Lena Grace Killough; his father, Frazier Killough; his brother, Ronnie Killough; and his great-granddaughter, Crimson Rayne Oikle.

A celebration of life service will be Wednesday, December 28, 2016 from the Johnson Funeral Chapel with Rev. Joe Bradford and Rev. Randy Harvill officiating.
