David J. Caudle, 66, of Kensington, passed away with his wife, Vreni, by his side on Friday, January 18, 2019, following an extended illness and recent liver transplant.
Born in Olney, MD on May 28, 1952, he was the son of the late James R. and Adele B. (Caudle) Goodell. Raised in North Carolina and Connecticut, he expanded his artistic nature and painting expertise at the Maryland Institute College of Art. He most recently served as the head of technology for the former Lake Grove School in Durham. At his retirement, he completed his Associates Degree. He had a vast collection of Japanese woodblock prints, about which he became very knowledgeable, and tin toys, of which he was very proud. As a passionate dog owner, he was a member of the Scottish Terrier Club of New England, and editor of their newspaper, Scottie Tales, as well as the Glyndwr Welsh Terrier Club. He devoted much of his time to Scottish Terrier rescues in Connecticut. He and Vreni had a love for travel and were very much looking forward to future trips in their R.V.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 30 years, Vreni Breakall-Caudle of Kensington, his brothers, Richard and wife Sharyn, Jan and Michael and wife Ann, along with many nieces and nephews and his four-legged family.
He was predeceased by his parents and sisters Daphne, Ellen and “Millie”.
