March 26, 1954 ~ July 21, 2020 (age 66)


Gale Abernathy (Abby), 66 of Bardolph, Illinois, passed away on July 21, at his home in Texas. He was preceded in death by his father, Gale; his brother, Carl Ray; and sister, Diana Lemley. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife of 30 years, Brenda Krull. Together they raised three kids - Jennifer, Steven and Christopher. Also surviving are his mother, Dorothy Abernathy of Aransas Pass, Texas; son, Gale (Patti) Abernathy of Pekin, Illinois; and five grandchildren - Faith, Hannah, Ashlynn, Kayden and Jada.

Abby's friends enjoyed his sense of humor and crazy stories.

He was a volunteer with girls' softball for 15 years as Board member, Coach and Keeper of the Fields.

His life began to slip away and depression had overcome him. At 3:00pm on a Tuesday, he fell to the floor and took his last breath in the arms of his wife, Brenda. He will be missed by many.
