Dell Stanley Louderback of Trenton, passed from this life into the arms of Jesus on December 20, 2022, just four days shy of his 98th birthday. He had been receiving care at Livingston Manor Care Center since July.
Funeral services were held at 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, December 28, 2022 at the First Baptist Church in Trenton. Burial was in Salem Cemetery, north of Trenton.
Dell was a lifelong resident of Trenton and the Forks of the River community. He was born December 24, 1924 to Walter Earl and Elmira Jane Louderback.
He graduated from Trenton High School in 1942 and was married to Virginia King on April 11, 1943. In his words, theirs was a match made in heaven. He cared for her in the home until her death from Parkinson™s disease in 2008. Dell was a man of many interests and hobbies, from bee keeping to clock repair. He worked many jobs in his life, Bendix in Kansas City, Trenton Foods and the kitchen at the senior center when he was in his eighties. Oh, did he have fun teasing the ladies there. But, it was farming and tractors that he loved most and where his heart was. He and the family were members of First Baptist Church in Trenton. The book of Revelations was his favorite.
Dell is survived by one son, Michael (Judy) of Phoenix, AZ; daughters Regina Pittman (Arlin) of Eureka and Karen Taylor of Trenton; two grandchildren, Brian Louderback (April) of Chipley, FL and Dana Holland (Mark Davidson) of Honesdale, PA; four great-grandchildren, Austin Louderback, Austin Gaddy, Ayla Holland and Faye Davidson; and a great-great-grandson, Daniel Gaddy.
He was preceded in death by his wife Virginia; an infant son, Steven Randall; a brother, Donald Louderback; and son-in-law, David Taylor.
Memorial donations are suggested to First Baptist Church or Salem Cemetery and may be left with or mailed to the funeral home.
