Nelson County lost a longtime business leader with the passing of Dinwiddie Mathis Wednesday.
Mathis, a native of Bardstown, was born Oct. 8, 1926, to Harlan and Roxanne “Roxie” Mathis. He had two sisters and an older brother, Fabian, who would later become his business partner.
Those who knew Mathis agreed that his service to the community was commendable.
“He was a lifelong citizen of Bardstown and Nelson County and contributed many great things to everyone in the community,” said Pike Conway, a lifelong friend.
