Hubert O. Caudill, age 84 of Sunman, died Friday, January 17, 2014 at Ripley Crossing in Milan.  Born July 13, 1929 in Jeremiah, Kentucky, he is the son of Chloe and James Caudill.  He married Janis Ison December 14, 1949 in Whitesburg, Kentucky.  Hubert worked 13 years as coalminer in the Whitesburg area and after relocating to Indiana, he would work 13 years as an assembler for the Union Furniture Company and 17 years in the paint department of Batesville Casket Company before retiring in 1994. 

His family described his as a hard working 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 that would eventually be replaced with donning his orange vest and going for walks.  For as long as they can remember, he and Janis would put out 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 Janis; daughters Glenda Johnson of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, Phyllis Dwenger of Osgood, Indiana; son Scott of Saline, Michigan; sisters Opal Caudill of Alexandria, Kentucky, Vina Bryant of Auburn, Indiana; brothers Coman of Weisberg, Kentucky, Lonzo of Jeremiah, Kentucky; six grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.  In addition to his parents, he is also preceded in death by his daughter Sandra Caudill; sisters Effie Caudill, Arlie Caudill and brother Hillard.

Visitation is Tuesday, January 21st from 4-7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home.  Funeral services are 10 a.m. Wednesday, January 22nd at the funeral home with Reverends Charles Combs, David Low and Robert Haney officiating.  Burial will follow in the Little Memory Baptist Cemetery.  The family requests memorials to the Memory Lane Program or Little Memory Baptist Church.
