Mr. Howard Edelen of Campbellsville passed from this life on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington. Born on April 30, 1942 to the late Tom and Maude (Murray) Edelen, he was 75 years, 8 months, and 19 days of age. Mr. Edelen professed faith in Christ and was of the Baptist faith.

Two children: Gwen Bowen and husband Wendell, and Troy Edelen and wife Cindy, all of Campbellsville,
Four sisters: Pearl Blevins, Barbara Powell, and Joyce Davis, all of Campbellsville, and Bernice Benningfield, his twin sister of Louisville,
Five grandchildren: Taylor Edelen, Tanner Edelen, Jeremy Edelen, Stephanie Bowen, and Zack Bowen,
And a host of other family and close friends.
He was also preceded in death by four siblings: Nora Lee Minor, Lola Nell Hickey, Wesley Edelen, and Wilda Edelen.
