Albert grew up in Campbellsville and professed faith in Christ as a twelve year old and became a member of the Walnut Hill Mission that became Lowell Avenue Baptist Church.
From an early age, Albert was a collector. Interesting rocks, Indian rocks and later, antiques were of special interest to him. He enjoyed setting up a flea markets to “wheel and deal” with others.
Another interest was animals. As a young man, he had dogs, pigeons, turtles and snakes (in cages!) and once, he even nurtured an injured dove back to good health before letting it fly away.

He later was employed for many years as a supervisor in the shipping department of Fruit of the Loom in Campbellsville. Farming and raising cattle kept him busy in later years. He enjoyed working with his sons on the farm.
He is survived by three sons: Richard Kurt Kilby (Kimberly) of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Christopher Chad Kilby (fiancée, Marie Anne Arius) of Palm Coast, Florida and John Albert “Chip” Kilby (Holly) of Campbellsville; two grandsons: Carter Earl Smith Kilby and Cole Albert Smith Kilby of Chagrin Falls, Ohio; his former wife and mother of his sons, Susan Nelson Kilby; one sister, Regina Graham and husband, Jimmie of Campbellsville; two nephews, David Graham (Becky) of Bowling Green and Andrew Graham (Robin) of Campbellsville and many other relatives and friends.
