Otis Duncan Cagle, Jr., age 94, of Horse Cave, passed away on Saturday, February 10, 2018, at Winter Haven Hospital in Winter Haven, FL. He was a native of Greeneville, TN and a longtime member of the Horse Cave United Methodist Church. He was a U.S. WWII veteran where he served in the 10th Armored Division receiving a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star.
Though characterized as a workaholic, O.D. found time to devote his talents to charitable and civic organizations. He served as president of Horse Cave Rotary Club, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, chairman of the Caverna Independent School Board and chairman of the Horse Cave Industrial Foundation. It is no wonder in 1975, the Horse Cave Chamber of Commerce voted O. D. as Citizen of the Year. Considered by friends as a person who would rather give than receive, O. D. has cast his shadow on his community and Horse Cave State Bank, providing an example of service to all who knew him. He also was a member of numerous other community Boards.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Otis Duncan Cagle, Sr. and Mae Hicks Cagle, and his loving wife, Tommye Williamson Cagle, and a sister-in-law, Betty Cagle.
