Dr. Ben L. Strong, who practiced dentistry in Taylorsville for 56 years, died Sunday in Louisville. He was 82.
At his office on Main Street, Strong worked alongside his son, Dr. James R. Strong, until his retirement in 2014. He then continued to practice part-time until this year.
He lived in Shelbyville with his wife, Betty Strong, who survives him.
Throughout his career, Strong provided dental care to countless citizens of Spencer County, where he and Betty Strong have lifelong friends.
