Gene was born on Oct. 18, 1934, in Science Hill. He leaves behind his wife of 57 years, Juanita Adams; four children, Terry Pitman (Jayne) of Burgin, Kim Boyd (Scott) of Blanchester, Ohio, Brian Pitman (Nicole) of Wyoming, Ohio, and Michael D. Pitman (Christy) of Cincinnati, Ohio; 11 grandchildren, Seth Pitman, Brody Pitman, Stefanie Whitney (Doug), Travis Boyd, Noah Pitman, Brooke Pitman, Sierra Steinwert, Tristan Pitman, Aubrey Pitman, Emma Pitman and Sophia Pitman; one sister, Ivadean Warren of Science Hill; two sisters-in-law, Zella Caudill, of Fairfield, Ohio and Angeline Hodge, and scores of nephews and nieces, including Jackie Haggard, Gary Haggard (Patty), Brenda Fields, Karen Hornsby, Vicki Lucas (Jim), Judy Haste (Hershel), Linda Hale (John), Larry Warren (Sherry), Danny Adams, Nancy Lothes (Ralph), Bobby Adams, Donna Collins, Judy Moshél (Dan), Tommy Adams, Harold Adams, Geraldine Owens (Barry).

DALE SEXTON

      Dale Robin Brichta Sexton, of Harrodsburg, a New York City native who parlayed her love of horses into a life amid the thoroughbred farms of Kentucky, died Thursday, June 4, at age 59. She was the wife of Wayne Sexton of Harrodsburg.

      A force of nature whose infectious laughter, love of people, and cooking skills made every gathering a party, Dale brought many worlds together in her eclectic life.

      Born March 12, 1956, in Manhattan, Dale was raised in Long Island City, NY.

      Her love of horses began with the pony rides at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, and inspired Dale to attend John Bowne Agricultural High School in Flushing, NY, where she learned to drive a tractor before graduating in 1973. She went on to attend City College of New York and become editor of the school newspaper, The Spectator. She began her career at American Jeweler magazine in New York. Dale married her journalistic talents with her love of horses, moving to Lexington, KY, in 1980 and going to work for advertising agencies and publications in the thoroughbred industry. She was the chief advertising copywriter for Thoroughbred Times for more than a decade, and also worked for Blood-Horse and Saybrook Advertising. In recent years, she worked as a freelance advertising consultant for such clients as Fasig-Tipton, Adena Springs, Three Chimneys Farm and Hidden Brook Farm.

      She was known in the advertising world for her expertise in researching the earnings and racing success of horses, breeders and stables, and she won numerous advertising awards. Objectivity not being one of her strengths, Dale often fell in love with certain horses based on their impressive bloodlines, and one horse stood out above all others in her heart - Damascus. Any offspring of the exquisite 1967 Horse of the Year automatically won her admiration, no matter how poorly they might perform at the track. It follows that Dale, despite her knowledge of bloodlines, was a terrible handicapper. She realized her dream of living on a farm when she invested in a 110-acre property in Harrodsburg, KY, where she raised horses, chickens and a grossly overweight pot-bellied pig named Daisy. (Daisy got her obesity issue under control only after Dale was convinced to stop feeding her Oreos.) For Dale, food was synonymous with love, and baking was her way of contributing to any celebration - a nephew's bris, a bar mitzvah at her synagogue or a friend's birthday.

      She also was an expert at needlepoint, winning Best in Show at the 2010 Mercer County Fair for a baby blanket featuring animals of the world. A long-time member of Ohavay Zion Synagogue of Lexington, KY, she taught Hebrew School and tutored bar and bat mitzvah students, and she traveled to Israel numerous times. She was as much at home haggling in the souk in a Druze village of northern Israel as she was at a thoroughbred racetrack in Kentucky. She married the love of her life, Wayne Sexton of Harrodsburg, on Jan 29, 2014, and they celebrated at a party held later that spring, appropriately, on Kentucky Derby day.

      In addition to her husband, Dale is survived by: her mother, Elaine Brichta of Long Island City, NY; brothers, Donald Brichta (Dana Bottorff) of Sharon, MA, and Alan Brichta (Galit Saraf-Brichta) of East Hills, NY; aunt, Merav Brooks of New York City; nephew, Jacob Brichta and nieces, Sophie Brichta, Gabrielle and Anna Brichta. She also is survived by step-daughter Ashley Jette (Travis Jette) of Harrodsburg, and two grandchildren, Benjamin and Chloe, as well as and hundreds of devoted friends.

      Donations in Dale's memory may be made to Old Friends at www.oldfriendsequine.org

      Funeral service will be conducted at 10:30 a.m. Monday, June 8, at Milward-Broadway, with interment at Lexington Cemetery.

      Visitation will be Sunday, June 7, from 4-6 p.m.

      Memorial observance to follow burial at Ohavay Zion Synagogue.
