WILBUR JOEL AMBURGEY
     Wilbur Joel Amburgey, son of Lester and Georgia Collins Amburgey was born June 2, 1953, at Redfox in
Knott Co., Ky.  He died July 9, 1974, being 21 years, 1 month and 7 days old.  He was a 1971 graduate of
Connersville High School.  Besides his parents, other survivors are:  three brothers: Lester Jr. of Connersville,
Robert Allen and Larry Wayne at home, two sisters: Mrs. Danny (Joyce Ann) Evans of Connersville, and
Wanda Sue at home.  His grandmother, Mrs. Cora Adams of Jeremiah, Ky., several aunts and uncles of
Connersville, Ind., Ohio, and Ky.  He always had a big smile for everyone who knew him.  Funeral services
were held on Thursday, July 11, at 2 P.M. at the Little Children's Home Church of Old Regular Baptist.  
Officiating ministers were Elder Zee Holbrook, and Roy Caudill.  By the testimony he left us, surely he is at rest.

                                             The smile on his face, it seemed to say.
                                             I am not dead, I'm just going away.
                                             It breaks our hearts, That is why we cry,
                                             He left us all without saying good-bye.
                                             But, God is good, so kind and so true.
                                             He opened the door so he could walk through.
