Political legend Larry Forgy dies


In a post on her Facebook early this morning, Larry Forgy’s sister, Senator Alice Forgy Kerr, announced the passing of her brother Larry Forgy. The Forgy family has had a large and active political presence in Kentucky politics for decades. Larry Forgy ran for Kentucky Governor in both 1991 and 1995, and entered the race in 1987 and withdrew. Forgy was a regular guest on Sue Wylie’s show on WVLK discussing everything politics.

Senator Kerr posted, It is with a heavy heart but with thankfulness to God for a full life well-lived that I announce the passing of my brother Lawrence E. (Larry) Forgy, Jr. at 12:50am today at the UK Hospital in Lexington. He was a devoted son, brother, father, and friend in addition to his long and distinguished career in law and politics. We are all heartbroken to lose this wonderful man who had a profound impact in Kentucky, but we are comforted to know that he is now in the embrace of our Heavenly Father. We are grateful to all who have assisted in his care and comfort during his last several years of declining health. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.”
