Frank T. Conyers Passes Away

Frank T. Conyers, 70, of Nicholasville, Kentucky, passed away May 14, 2008, after a brief illness. Active in breeding and showing American Saddlebred horses, he purchased his first Saddlebred in 1973 for his daughter Melanie. Most recently he especially enjoyed attending shows in which his nine-year-old granddaughter, Elizabeth Peterson, rode under the guidance of Penny Lane Farm, Paducah, Kentucky. Frank served as the grounds manager for all of the TSE/Tattersalls sales from 1995 through Spring 2008. He was an employee of the Jessamine County Board of Education from 1970 until 2008, serving as a teacher, administrator, and head football coach at Jessamine County High School. A native of Carlisle, Kentucky, he is survived by his wife, Loretta D. Conyers, his two children, Brett (Glenda) Conyers and Melanie (Ernie) Peterson, and grandchildren Matthew, Elizabeth, and Jessica Peterson. A funeral service was held at a packed West Jessamine High School gymnasium on May 16 and burial was on May 17 at Maple Grove Cemetery in Nicholasville.

A familiar face at Tattersalls and Kentucky horse shows, Frank was well-known for his friendly, caring, and courteous ways with everyone. He will be greatly missed by horse enthusiasts as well as so many people of all ages whose lives he touched while serving his community.
