By request I will in my much weakness try to write an obituary of our beloved Bro. Marrion Caudill. He was
born May 16, 1881, deceased April 1, 1958, age 77 years and 11 months and 15 days, was married to
Sylvania (Bush) Caudill and to this union was born 11 children. Five preceded him death, six are still living.
Mason Caudill, Unity, Ky., Mrs. Myrtle Obrien, Ypsilanti, Mich., Mrs. Mattie Griffie, Wentz, Ky., Fred Caudill,
Dayton, Ohio, Holbert Caudill, Blackey, Ky., Mrs. May Eldridge, Ypsilante, Mieh., and 24 grandchildren and 9
great grandcihildren, to mourn the loss of a father and grandfather. He has been a good citizen, a good
husband and father. He professed a hope in Christ and joined the Big Leathewood Regular Baptist Church the
3rd Sunday in Oct. 1938.
Was ordained a Deacon and filled the office of a Deacon well. He was always willing to do anything for the
upbuilding of our Church and to help his neighbor and fellowman. Always showed love to every one, both saint
and sinner, was humble, and always wanted church in his home. He did not wait until he got sick to call for
church in his home. His door was always open to his many Baptist friends. He often talked to me about his
passing out. He said he was ready to go, and was sometimes willing to go, and get out of misery. He knew his
time was short the last time I talked to him he said that cancer was eating him up. There are many, many
things I could write and all good things. He has preached his own funeral and to his children I 'hope you will do
as he has done, live the life God wants you to, and some day you can see your dad again where there will be
no sorrow or trouble. Where you will never have to part, but always be in the joy of the Lord.
