I did not know Mr. Caudill very well but knew much of his family to include his son Scott and two grandsons Nate and Landon. I want them to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them all in this trying time in their lives and we are very sorry for their loss. Should there be anything we can do please do not hesitate to contact us. Our son Tanner was always with Landon and grew to know and love papaw Caudill as well. Again we are very sorry for your loss.

Have many fond memories of Dave. When I lived on Hansgen Morgan Road we rode horse’s together. Even traded horses once. Dave will be missed. Prayers for the family.

I worked with Dave when he came to Williamson to work the shifters. He and Don Riffe were such a blessing to work with. I pray for peace and comfort for his family and friends that he has left behind. May God bless all of you.

I just want to say that your loss is great and I am so sorry to hear this news. I was just one of the guys that had lunch with David on Fridays and played golf with him and others. All of the guys liked David very much. We could joke with one another talk politic Minford sports, and of course the Pirates LOL. We would all get alone very well. Once again I am so sorry for your loss. Mike Piguet
