Jerry “Peanut” Lee Caudill, 63

Jerry “Peanut” Lee Caudill passed away on Friday, January 14, 2022 with his loving family by his side.  The son of Carl and Testa Caudill was born on December 21, 1958 in Batesville.  He was 63 years young. 

Peanut, as most knew him by, graduated from Batesville High School in 1977. He married Loretta Werner in 1983 at St. Maurice Catholic Church in Napoleon and together they raised four children. He worked for Hill-Rom for almost 30 years before going to work for Ryobi in Shelbyville, until his illness led him to retire.

Peanut was a true outdoorsman who just liked taking in what nature had to offer. He enjoyed it all, fishing, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, camping and building a good campfire. Peanut started a You Tube channel called ‘Muzzy Loader Camp’ a few years ago and would post his outdoor excursions for others to enjoy.  Family was important to Peanut and he always made time for them as well, many times including them in his nature adventures. Of course, his grandkids have always held a special place in his heart and he loved spending time with them too.  

He will be dearly missed by his parents, Carl and Testa Caudill; wife, Loretta Caudill; son, Matt (Cierra) Caudill; 3 daughters, Amber (Bradon) Siebert, Megan Caudill and Kayla Caudill; 9 grandchildren, Madalyn, Emma & Katherine Caudill, Cash, Rivers & Riley Caudill and Evan, Audrey & Tucker Siebert; along with his siblings, Wade Caudill, Keith Caudill, Larry Caudill, Sherry Davis, Greg Caudill, Christine Bellavia and Byron Caudill.

Visitation will be Tuesday, January 18, 2022 from 4-7pm with funeral services at 11:00am on Wednesday, January 19th all at Meyers Funeral Home in Batesville. Burial will follow in the St. Maurice Catholic Cemetery in Napoleon.

Memorials can be directed to the family to help with medical bills by bringing to the services or mailing to Meyers Funeral Home, P.O. Box 202, Batesville, IN 47006.
