Hubert O. Caudill, 84

Hubert O. Caudill, 84, Sunman, died Friday, Jan. 17, 2014, at Ripley Crossing, Milan. 

Born July 13, 1929, in Jeremiah, Ky., he was the son of Chloe and James Caudill. He married Janis Ison Dec. 14, 1949, in Whitesburg, Ky. 

Hubert worked 13 years as a coal miner in the Whitesburg area and, after relocating to Indiana, he worked 13 years as an assembler for Union Furniture Co. and 17 years in the paint department of Batesville Casket Co. before retiring in 1994.

His family described him as a hardworking man and wonderful father. After a long day of work, he looked forward to being at home with his children and in later years his grandchildren. Faith was important to Hubert. He attended Little Memory Old Regular Baptist Church and regularly read his Bible. 

Other interests often took him outdoors. In his younger days, he enjoyed squirrel and rabbit hunting, which would eventually be replaced with donning his orange vest and going for walks. For as long as they can remember, he and Janis would plant a large garden each year “that dad would tend to daily along with his fruit trees.” Hubert also liked bluegrass music, Gospel music and the simple pleasure of sitting on the porch relaxing.

He is survived by his wife; daughters Glenda Johnson, Lawrenceburg, and Phyllis Dwenger, Osgood; son Scott, Saline, Mich.; sisters Opal Caudill, Alexandria, Ky., and Vina Bryant, Auburn; brothers Coman, Weisberg, Ky., and Lonzo, Jeremiah, Ky.; six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. 

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his daughter, Sandra Caudill; sisters Effie and Arlie Caudill; and brother Hillard.

Visitation is Tuesday, Jan. 21, from 4-7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, there with the Revs. Charles Combs, David Lowe and Robert Haney officiating. Burial will follow in the Little Memory Old Regular Baptist Church Cemetery. The family requests memorials to the Memory Lane Program or church.
