Doyce Bryan Loudermilk

February 25, 1934 — January 14, 2020

Doyce Bryan Loudermilk of Epworth Georgia passed away on Tuesday, January 14th, 2020, at the age of 85. Doyce was born on February 25th, 1934, to the late George and Cressie Loudermilk at their home in Fannin County. He married Loretta Odom in 1954, and the couple recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.

Doyce was a faithful member of Copperhill First United Methodist Church and the Sunday School Superintendent for most of the years he spent there at the church. He enjoyed camping, model airplanes, fixing just about anything, watching the Braves play baseball, and, most importantly, spending time with his family. Doyce spent his entire life serving others, loving his family, and taking care of all those around him. "Papaw," as we all referred to him, made every one of us feel loved and special.
Doyce was preceded in death by his parents George and Cressie Loudermilk; son, Darrell Roger Loudermilk, and his siblings Dennis Loudermilk, Sue Williams, Sibyle Whitlow, C.G. Loudermilk, and Austin Loudermilk.
He is survived by his wife Loretta Loudermilk, son Randy Loudermilk, daughter and son in law Ramona and Kenny Cook, brother Donald Loudermilk, and sister Annette Loudermilk; Grandchildren Alex and Lisa Loudermilk, Daniel and Haley Loudermilk, Gary Loudermilk, Hope Loudermilk, and Chloe and Nolan Walker. Also, seven great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Doyce's life will be held Saturday, January 18th, 2020, at Copperhill First United Methodist Church. Rev. Tom Reed and Rev. Jennings Neeld will be officiating. The interment will follow at Barnes Chapel. The family is requesting donations to the Pastor's discretionary fund, but flowers are also welcome. Those serving as honorary pallbearers are the First United Methodist Men of Copperhill.

Finch-Cochran Funeral Home & Crematory is honored to be serving the family.
