He retired from the Daily Press Inc., in 1996, after 24 years of service. He always worked in printing, in Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, except for his military service, when he served in the U.S. Army during the Korean conflict. His hobbies were sports and his coin collection.

Survivors include his wife of 61 years, Jo Ann; son, Larry W. Kilgore and wife, Arleen; daughter, Teresa Morrow; four grandchildren, Christina Carrington and husband, Steve, Jeremy Kilgore and wife, Desiree, Casey White, Keegan Morrow; four great-grandchildren, Kendra Carrington, Dylan, Jordan, and Emma Kilgore; many nieces and nephews; also one sister-in-law, Edith Dockery.
