He is also survived by one daughter, Kimberly Aliseri and three sons, Barry Scott, Gregory Alan and Kevin Paul.¬† He was preceded in death by his parents, Beauna Vista and Vada Williams Brummett; and one sister, Nell Parnell.

Memorial services will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 19, at First Christian Church. Drs. Lon Oliver, Linda Parker and David Leslie will officiate.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the First Christian Church of Henderson, KY., or the American Cancer Society.
