Norman "Norm" Caudill

     It is with a sad heart but fond memories that I will attempt to
write the obituary of my dear friend, neighbor and brother in Christ.
Norman “Norm” Caudill, son of the late Roy and Ida Mae Eldridge
Caudill, was born in Letcher County, Kentucky, on December 29,
1962. He entered eternal life on Friday, April 15, 2005 at his residence
at Pinetop, Kentucky, being 42 years, 3 months and 16 days of
age at the time of his passing.
     Norm attended the Old Regular Baptist Church and was a member
of the Knott County Motorcycle Club. Norm was a wonderful
father and loved his girls very much. Kristi and Amy, you can both
be assured that you were first and foremost in your daddy’s heart and
mind. He often spoke to me of “my girls” in loving and enduring
     He is survived by his wife, Patty Caudill of Hazard, Kentucky;
two daughters, Kristi Lynn Caudill and Amy Nicole Caudill, both of
Hazard, Kentucky; three sisters, Brenda Cantrell of Pound, Virginia,
Linda Holbrook and Sarah Jane Caudill of Mayking, Kentucky; and
three brothers, Billy Dean Caudill of Isom, Kentucky, Vergle Caudill
of Blackey, Kentucky and Morris Dale Caudill of Pinetop, Kentucky.
Also surviving are a host of other friends and relatives to mourn his
passing. Norm was preceded in death by a nephew, Lonnie Edward
Howard, who passed away on March 24, 1993.
     “In the midst of life we are in death,” none of us know when God
will call us home. If we would all love God and be a good neighbor
and friend as Norm was, we could hear “Well done my good and
faithful servant” when this life is through. Sleep on our brother, take
your rest. We surely miss you and hope to meet you in that sweet bye
and bye.
