Andrew "Andy" Fannin Obituary

Andrew “Andy” Jay Fannin, age 57, of Hillsboro Road, Hillsboro, KY, passed away Wednesday, January 31, 2024, at Fleming County Hospital in Flemingsburg.


Born November 6, 1966, in Morehead, KY, he is the son of Kay Utterback Fannin of Morehead and the late Joseph Talmadge (J.T.) Fannin. 


In addition to his mother, Andy is survived by his wife, Ramona Furnish Fannin, whom he married February 19, 1993; two sons, David Fannin and his wife Makenzie of Sharpsburg, KY, and Samuel “Sam” Fannin of Hillsboro; one sister, Victoria “Tori” Earlywine and husband Adam of Morehead; two sisters-in-law, Janie Poston and husband Mark and Karen Eldridge and husband Tom, as well as his constant canine companions, Bo and Garnet. He also leaves many extended family members and friends to cherish his memory.


Andy graduated from Rowan County High School in 1984.  He was a highly skilled self-employed custom knife maker whose works are found across the world.  He was always creative in design and meticulous in detail.  Andy loved living life to the fullest—throwing darts, target shooting, grilling out, and listening to Led Zeppelin music were a few of his favorite things. Most of all, however, he loved spending time with his family, especially his wife and children. He will forever be remembered and loved. 


A funeral service will be conducted 2 p.m. Sunday, February 4, 2024, at Hutton Funeral Home with his brother-in-law, Mark Poston, and friend David Johnson officiating.  Burial will follow in Bradley Cemetery on Dry Branch Road in Carter County.


Pallbearers:  David Fannin, Sam Fannin, Walker Thompson, Ralph Cox, Dylan Clise, Ben Lewis, and David Johnson 


Visitation will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, February 3, 2024, and from 12 noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 4, 2024, at Hutton Funeral Home, 7634 Hillsboro Road, Hillsboro, KY 41049.
