Judge Executive Wil Cannon has officially declared March 19, 2016, "Ed Minyard Day." Family members of the late Ed Minyard attended fiscal court this morning as the proclamation was read to the court.
Mrs. Gertie Minyard, widow of Mr. Minyard, accepted the official document in his name. The Minyards were married on March 19, 1960.
William "Ed" Minyard served Edmonson County over 50 years by volunteering as a member of several fire departments, working with the rescue squad, Jaws of Life, and was the Edmonson County Coroner for 35 years.
"It's a pleasure to give honor to those that have served like that," said Judge Cannon. "And he served nearly his entire life."
