Obituary for Dr. Faurest Coogle
Published in The Courier-Journal on September 10, 2013

Dr. Faurest Coogle, 73, of Frankfort, died at his home on September 7, 2013. He was born in Stephensburg, KY, to Evin H. and Anna Marie Coogle. He played basketball for Shawnee High School and Florida State University. In 1963, he began a 50 year commitment to the education of Kentucky's children as a basketball coach and biology teacher at Hickman County High School. He later taught and coached at Iroquois High School in Louisville and earned a Master's Degree at Murray State University. He earned an Ed.D. at the University of Kentucky and served as Assistant Superintendent of Union County Public Schools. In 1980, he became Superintendent of Franklin County Public Schools, where he served for a decade. While at Franklin County, he was among the founders of the All Academics Team which continues to honor outstanding students and teachers in Franklin County. In 1987, he was awarded the FL Dupree Award recognizing the Outstanding School Superintendent in the State of Kentucky. He continued his work in education at the Kentucky School Boards Association. At the time of his death, he was employed on the Leadership Staff of the Kentucky State Senate where he assisted in the drafting of education-related legislation, including Kentucky's Senate Bill No. 1. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Rita Coogle Elzy. He is survived by sons, Matthew Coogle of Louisville and Kent Coogle (Minda) of Winchester, and his nephew, Todd Toles. He loved watching his granddaughter, Sylvia, pick and eat cherry tomatoes from his garden, and enjoyed seeing his grandson, Silas, play baseball in his backyard. Faurest was an avid fan of Bob Dylan and the Louisville Cardinals.
