Ernest E Duncil, 73, of Versailles, passed away Friday, April 2, 2021,
after fighting a courageous battle against cancer that was very recently
diagnosed in his lung and brain.
Ernie was born on July 25, 1947 to the late George Elmer Duncil and
Monie Lee Back Duncil in Hazard. After graduating from Dilce Combs High
School in 1966, he moved to Versailles. He served in the U.S. Army
beginning in 1968 and was a 40 year employee of the former Rand McNally
Company in Versailles, where he made many friends and got his nickname
“Zero.” One of his most acquired attributes was making lifelong friends
and telling unique stories about his childhood. He was passionate about
golfing, camping, gardening and his guitar.
Anyone who knew him knew that he was the most loving father, brother,
uncle and friend anyone could ask for, and he accepted Christ as his
personal Savior at the age of 29 and spent many hours claiming scripture
and reading God’s Word.
He is survived by his three children, Jennifer Ann Duncil, Barry Patrick
Duncil and Joshua Clay Duncil; two sisters, Penelope (Danny) Duncil
Jackson, Versailles; and Pandora (Roy) Duncil Smith, Dayton, Ohio; and
numerous nieces and nephews. Ernie was predeceased by siblings, Reagen
Duncil, William Ronald Duncil, Priscilla Kaye Duncil and Georgia Duncil
Visitation will be held from 12 until 2 p.m. today, Thursday, April 8,
at Kerr Brothers, Harrodsburg Road, Lexington, followed by a graveside
service with military honors at Camp Nelson National Cemetery,
The family requests that all notes are sent to the Duncil family, 515
