Earl Eugene Withrow
Earl Eugene Withrow was taken from us, at his home, on October 23, 2019. He was born July 16, 1948, in Hitchens, Kentucky, a son of the late Leonard T. and Dora Scaggs Cains.

A man surrounded by family and friends, Earl was always remarkable for his willingness to give and put those around him ahead of himself. He was a hard working individual, who despite the things that often needed done, he found ways to shower those around him, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, with unconditional love.
Earl is survived by the love of his life, wife of 23 years, Della Barker Withrow, who he was faithfully devoted to, always seeking to put her needs and comfort before his own; three daughters; Drema Wells and husband, Lindsay of Olive Hill, Kentucky; Lyda Miller and Jeff Dixon of Grahn, Kentucky and Renea Hollingsworth and husband, Keith of Olive Hill, Kentucky; six grandchildren, Jessica Craig and husband, David of Olive Hill, Kentucky, Frankie Miller and Melissa Lalonde of Ogdensburg, New York, Lauren Baker and husband, Brad of Olive Hill, Kentucky, PJ Hollingsworth and wife, Brittany of Sandy Hook, Kentucky, Morgan Hollingsworth and fiancé, Seth Wells of Cattletsburg, Kentucky and Ashley Dixon of Olive Hill, Kentucky; six great grandchildren, Dawson Craig, Baylee Craig, Connor Craig, Waylon Rice, Emmaline Baker and Hazel Miller; one sister, Welma Marcum of Bellefonte, Kentucky; his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Sandy and Nick Wilson, Diane and J.C. Collins, James Barker, Joan Barker and Jerry and Kim Barker. He will be sadly missed by many family, friends and neighbors.
