Shelby Earl Poole

Shelby Earl Poole, age 85, of Hardinsburg, KY, passed away on Friday, March 22, 2024 at Breckinridge Memorial Hospital.                                

He was born on May 25, 1938 in Glen Dean, KY, son of the late Jesse Earl Poole and Elsie Clyde Decker. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Robert Earl Poole; sister, Brenda Swink; and two brothers, Buren Poole and Gene Poole.
