Kelly Dean Caudle Sr.
The brightest light in my world, the love of my life has gone ahead to prepare our place in Heaven. We were not ready. Life will never ever be the same. Please pray for us, it feels impossible to breathe. I love you Kelly Dean. For the rest of my life. Then I will meet you there.

Kelly Dean Caudle Sr, 55, of Tulare,
CA passed away unexpectedly on March 5, 2021
in Hanford, CA.
Kelly was born on December 28, 1965 to Kenneth Earl and Jean Laverne (Barnes) Caudle, their youngest of four sons. He attended Maple Elementary, Mulcahy Middle School, and Tulare Western High School, where he excelled in marching band.
Dad fondly shared memories of traveling with his favorite teacher, Mrs. Marsha Sweet, and the band to New York City during his senior year. Tulare Western is also where he met the love of his life Tina or “Marlene” as he so lovingly called her. After moving to San Diego following
his senior year, Kelly made a call one day to Tina, who had recently moved
to Texas, and asked her to move back to California and marry him. Kelly
and Tina’s eternal love story began on March 22, 1985 and three beautiful
children followed.
Kelly fought a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis and spent many years
at home with his family where he developed his love for computers. He
eventually graduated from San Joaquin Valley College with a degree in
computer science. Kelly was a jack of all trades. He began his many years in
the work force painting houses, being an attendant at Exxon, an EMT for
Life Star Ambulance, a Drug Abuse Counselor for Kings View, spent time in
computer repair and maintenance, and most recently worked for the County
of Tulare. Kelly loved to share his thoughts and knowledge of the world and
could be found singing in the shower on the best of days.
He is survived by his high school sweetheart and the mother of his three
children, Tina of Tulare; his children, Kelly and wife Cecilia of Las Vegas,
Jessica and husband Henry of Visalia, and Kristopher and wife Zoe of
Tulare; grandchildren Jaiden, Natalie, Maxwell, and Ella of Las Vegas and
Olivia, Saverio “Sam”, and Violet of Tulare; and his beloved dogs Nicky and
Hannah. He is also survived by his mother Jean, brothers Kenny, Kevin,
and Kyle, sisters Sherry, Diane, and Kristen as well as many in laws, cousins,
nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Hap and Bethel
Caudle, his maternal grandparents Pat and Opal Barnes and Lula Stout, his
father Kenneth, his Uncle Bill and Aunt Donna Griffin.
To know Kelly was to know his love of God, his wife, his children, grandchildren, and his pets. He will be greatly missed by all who’ve known him.
We’ll see you again soon. 143.
Services to be held at a later time.
