Herald Gaddis

November 3, 1942 — May 26, 2021

Herald Gaddis of Campbellsville, son of the late Clarence "Jake" Gaddis and Gracie Ann Gaddis, was born November 3, 1942 in Taylor County Kentucky. He departed this life at 3:45 AM Wednesday, May 26, 2021 in Louisville. Age: 78 Herald grew up on Gaddis Ridge in Taylor County and spent his younger years on the family farm. He was a jack of many trades including carpentry, electrician, heavy equipment operator, small engine repair, construction, farming, entrepreneur, and real estate developer. He took great pride in his lawn, his landscaping and his garden. The last few years, he grew lots of garden plants from seed and supplied plant sets to the entire family. He and Ann loved to ride their Honda Goldwing Trike with friends and have many great trips and miles of memories under their belt. Hunting and fishing were also beloved past times and as soon as a couple weeks ago was planning his next fishing expedition with one of his fishing buddies. He was a proud member of Stoner Creek Church. A loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, he took great pride in his family and was quick to offer a helping hand to those in need. He believed life was for living, not watching, and he squeezed every ounce of life out of his 78 years, 6 months and 23 days. He would encourage you to do the same. He united in marriage to Laura "Ann" Cox on October 16, 2001. Besides his wife, Laura "Ann" Gaddis of Campbellsville, he leaves to honor his memory one son and daughter in law, Allen Gaddis & Tonia and one daughter and son in law, Sherry Bowen & Larry. His legacy includes six Grandchildren: Jessa, Jaxon, June, Jenny and Joel Gaddis and Amelia Bowen as well as step children Gerald Benningfield and Kerri and Tammy Benningfield Cox, three step grand children, Caleb Benningfield, Austin Benningfield and Cole Gribbins and one step great grandchild, Carter Gribbins. The family will receive friends and family 10:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M., Saturday May 29, 2021, at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home and we will all celebrate Herald's life at 1:00 P.M. with Rev. John Hall officiating. Entombment will be in Brookside Mausoleum. EXPRESSIONS OF SYMPATHY ARE REQUESTED TO BE DONATIONS TO STONER CREEK CHURCH OR GIDEON BIBLES TO HELP SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS WORLDWIDE. DONATIONS MAY BE MADE AT PARROTT & RAMSEY FUNERAL HOME
