Kenneth Lee Geurin

Kenneth Lee Geurin

Kenneth Lee “Squirrel” Geurin died after complications from a long illness at Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Kentucky, on Tuesday April 7, 2020, at 3:45 pm.

He was born Dec. 30, 1941, and was a lifelong member of the Lord's church and attended New Concord Church of Christ, where he served as a deacon for many years. In addition to being a tobacco farmer, he retired from the local milk plant where he worked until his retirement in 2005. His love for hunting allowed him to develop many friendships and it was his hobby on into his twilight years.
He was an avid Laker fan and attended every event he could. Kenneth loved his Kentucky Wildcats with a passion, as well as the St. Louis Cardinals. Additionally, he loved Kentucky High School basketball. He knew many coaches and referees by name all across Kentucky and, if the Kentucky Sweet Boy’s State Tournament hadn't been canceled this year, he had his tickets, a hotel reserved and ready to attend. This would have been his 50th state tournament to attend, a bucket list item he had in his sights.
Kenneth prided himself on his garden which could feed the county with its bounty. He was a selfless servant when it came to feeding large groups at church and community events, where he would always be found behind the grill working his magic. Kenneth loved his family fiercely and was the rock on which they all depended.

He was preceded in death by his first wife of 35 years, Peggy Armstrong Geurin, whom he married on June 7, 1963; his parents,  J.D. and Tillie Geurin; a brother Joe Geurin; and a sister Linda Parker.
Mr. Geurin is survived by his wife of 20 years, Betty Geurin; two daughters, Jeanetta McCallon and husband Randy, and Jennifer Stubblefield and husband Chad; a stepson William Shelley and wife Meg; stepdaughter, Angela Abbott and husband Mark; six grandchildren, Morgan Carter and husband Wade, Sullivan Friedrich and husband Josh, Sarai Miller and husband Cameron, Ellis Stubblefield, Kennedy Basham and Sam Shelley; a great-granddaughter, Clarke Carter; a brother Jack Geurin; and several nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life service will be at 4 p.m. Saturday, April 10, 2021, at New Concord Church of Christ. Pall bearers will be Paul Wayne Garrison, Danny Herndon, Barry Grogan, Ed Davis, Bob Haley Jr., McCage, Charles Stubblefield, Shea Sykes and Josh Sykes.  
From their childhood, Kenneth encouraged both of his girls to go into education, for he was a firm believer in the power of education, both at school and in church. With that in mind, expressions of memorial may be expressed as donations to the Kenneth "Squirrel" Geurin Scholarship Fund, sent to The Murray Bank, P.O. Box 1300, Murray, KY 42071, or to The Western Kentucky Youth Camp, 301 Youth Camp Road, Marion, KY 42064.
