A true friend and the epitome of a servant leader.
That is how Dr. Dwayne Howell described Dr. Jerry Ray Kibbons, who died this past Saturday in Lexington, Ky. He was 84.
Howell, a 1982 graduate of Campbellsville College who now serves as professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Campbellsville University, called Kibbons his mentor and friend for close to 40 years.
Howell delivered the message at Kibbons' funeral Wednesday at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home.
