Memorial Service Scheduled for Mallory

A memorial service has been scheduled for Dan Mallory who was among the 49 passengers who perished in the crash of Comair flight 5191 at Blue Grass Airport Aug. 27.

The service, "A celebration of Dan's life" will be held at 3 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Fasig-Tipton sales pavilion. There will be food and time to gather for family and friends.

Mallory, owner of Meadow Haven Farm near Paris, Ky., was en route from Lexington to Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas for the Fasig-Tipton Texas summer yearling sale where he was consigning three horses with his son, Scott.

His operation regularly consigned 200 horses a year at sales in such states as Kentucky, Texas, and Maryland.

Mallory served as president of the Kentucky Farm Managers' Club in 1989 and bred several stakes winners alone and in partnership. They included multiple added-money winners American Spirit, Traces of Gold, and Yet Anothernatalie.

In addition to his son Scott, Mallory is survived by his wife, Edith; two other sons, Dale and Dustin; a daughter, Dawn, and three stepchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested contributions to the Dan Mallory Memorial Fund, which has been created to benefit Mallory's 10-year-old son, Dustin. The address for the fund is Farmers National Bank, Attn: Ron Burden, 2106 Rocky Road, Paris, Ky. 40361.

A memorial service for Dr. Larry Turner, associate dean for extension and director of the cooperative extension service at the University of Kentucky's college of agriculture, has been planned for 1 p.m. Sept. 1 at Southland Christian Church in Lexington. Visitation is planned from 5-9 p.m. Aug. 31 at Christ United Methodist Church.

A resident of Lexington, Turner had worked closely with Gene Clabes, equine director of the Kentucky Equine Education Project, on an assignment called the UK Equine Initiative. Forming a partnership between the college of agriculture and the horse industry, Turner built a strong business relationship with Clabes while conducting listening sessions and formulating new strategies for academics, research, and service at the University of Kentucky.

A memorial service is also being planned for Anne Marie Bailey, a veterinary technician in Vancouver, British Columbia at Hastings Park.
