Charles Caudell

Charles “Chuck” “Red” Caudell, 64, of Danville, passed away at 7:18 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013, at his home in Danville.

He was born Feb. 24, 1949, in Danville to Cecil and Audrey Duprey Caudell.

He was married to Theresa Hart on Jan. 6, 1992, in Danville. She survives.

He is survived by his sons, James (Suszanne) Caudell and Cecil Caudell; stepchildren, Jenniy (Beau) Lehman and Samuel Degenhardt; numerous brothers and sisters; grandchildren, Allyn, Shayne, Izaya, Kaydence, Hayden, Brittany, Rachael, Christopher, Braden, Haley, Jeremy, Jacob, Ashlynn, Nickole, Brandon, Tryce, Maddelyn, Alyissa, and Michael; and his pets, Hershey, Wilbur and Harley.

He is preceded in death by his parents and his daughter, Dawn Smith.

Chuck was a prankster. He was a man who was able to have fun with people, mostly at their own expense. But Chuck also was a caregiver. He raised not only his children but many local children in the area who needed help. He was the type of man who would give the shirt off his back. Chuck proved this not only by helping the local kids, but by helping people with any project they might have had. Whether it was rebuilding an engine or rebuilding a house, Chuck was truly a jack of all trades. He would find joy in simply taking things apart just to know how to put it back together. In his later years he loved his church, and he loved learning at his church. But above all else, Chuck loved his family.

A memorial service will take place on a later date at Ridge Farm Community Church. For information, please call (217) 662-1929.
