Gregory Keith Plank, age 57, of Poplar Hollow Road, Morehead, passed away Friday, July 16, 2021, at St. Claire HealthCare after a short illness.
Keith was born September 15, 1963, in Rowan County, a son of Delmer and Ruth Riley Plank. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Lisa Kinder Plank, whom he married July 23, 1988; two sons, Austin Keith Plank (Katie Osborne) and Hunter Scott Plank (Jayce Coldiron); and a precious granddaughter, Paisley, all of Morehead.
Also surviving are two brothers, Dale Plank (Cosba) and Todd Plank (Teresa); sister-in-law, Carol Estep (Joseph); mother-in-law, LaVonne Kinder, all of Morehead; and several nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, and extended family.
Keith was preceded in death by his grandparents, Luther and Dorothy Plank and Ernest and Edith Riley; father-in-law, Leo Kinder; and brothers-in-law, Scott and Charlie Kinder.
Keith was employed by Walker Construction as a driller. He was an avid hunter and loved the outdoors. You could often find him at a motocross track being the biggest supporter of his two favorite racers, #94 and #49. Keith could not have loved or been more proud of his two sons, Austin and Hunter. He was a friend, mentor and “papaw” to many neighborhood boys through the years. He will be missed by so many.
A funeral service will be held 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 20, 2021, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals Memorial Chapel with Pastor Butch Kelsey officiating. Burial will follow in the Williams Cemetery on Kinder Branch.
Pallbearers will be Josh Plank, Cody Plank, Toby Blevins, Alex Hamilton, Kyle Watkins, and Joseph Estep. Honorary pallbearers will be Heath Loper and Jacob Plank.
Visitation will be 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, July 19, 2021, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals, 400 Fraley Drive, Morehead, KY 40351.
