Elam B. Kuykendall

(June 10, 1908-April 3, 1993)

A memorial service for Elam B. Kuykendall was con-ducted April 6, 1993 in Athens, Alabama. Hiram Hutto, Sam Binkley, and Lynn Headrick participated in the service, with talks by brother Kuykendall’s two sons, Kenneth and Wayne.

Elam B. Kuykendall is widely known as a gospel preacher and owner of Kuykendall’s Press. For over fifty years he has preached in several states and for a large number of churches in North Alabama. He taught at Peabody, Lipscomb and Florida College; Dasher Bible School and Athens Bible School.

Brother Kuykendall edited Gospel Digest and for many years, The Graphic Evangelist. In addition to his preaching, he spent his life publishing tracts, class material, and teaching industrial arts and printing. He will be missed in all of these areas. He had a deep and abiding faith in God and respect for the authority of the Scriptures. Based on the articles he wrote and what he printed from others, no one ever needed to wonder just where he stood on most any Bible subject. Many, including this writer, called him friend and faithful brother.

We extend our sympathy to his children, Kenneth, Wayne and Frances Owen in their loss. Frances continues to operate Kuykendall’s Press in the printing of the Kuykendall-Conchin workbooks, tracts, and other religious material.  Submitted by O.C. Birdwell, Jr.
