OLLIE CAPLIN JR.

 

Ollie Caplin, Jr. of Somerset, Kentucky passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at the age of 91.  He was born and raised in Harlan County, Kentucky. 

 

Ollie began work at a young age, selling newspapers on the street corners of Harlan.  Other jobs included working at Pennington’s grocery store, lifeguarding at the local swimming pool and mixing mortar to lay brick for “Little Johnny”.  He attended Harlan High School where he excelled in football, basketball and swimming.  Secondary sports he enjoyed were baseball and boxing.  After graduating Harlan High, he relocated to Somerset for a job in advertising sales. 

 

In Somerset, Ollie met and married the love of his life, Eva Elizabeth “Betty” Wilson.  He enlisted in the US Marine Corps and was trained as PFC at Parris Island, SC.  After training, he was stationed at Camp LeJeune in Jacksonville, NC where he and Betty lived during his active military duty.  Upon completion of his service, they returned to Somerset to be near family.

 

Besides a brief career as owner of the Creative Press Newspaper during the 1960’s, Ollie made a life long career of sales, most notably with the Paymaster Corporation.  He traveled the roads throughout Kentucky and eastern Tennessee for 30 plus years, serving his customers and making many good friends along the way.

 

Having grown up  in the aftermath of the Great Depression and amidst WWII, Ollie was extremely patriotic.  He loved and honored the American Flag, which he called Old Glory.  He once said that he and Betty “Loved the Lord, loved their country and loved each other” and felt that pretty much summed up the way to live a good life.  Ollie was of the Christian Faith; a prayerful man and had a grateful heart; always saying thank you to all who helped him or showed kindness towards him.

 

Ollie liked to keep life simple.  He had a “never give up” mind-set.  He enjoyed dining out and cooking good food.  He would cook Kibbeh, a Syrian dish, sharing It with anyone who stopped by the house.  He also enjoyed watching sports (especially the Kentucky Wildcats), classic movies and his favorite television show; Andy Griffith.  He gravitated to warm weather and the outdoors for relaxation.  He liked picnics with the family at Waitsboro Park and Burnside Island.  On occasion, he spent quiet summer afternoons, fishing for lake trout from the riverbanks of Lake Cumberland.  His favorite, family vacation destination was Daytona Beach, Florida.  Later in life, he enjoyed being with many good friends that he had met at Golden Corral Restaurant and Somerset Mall.

 

Ollie was blessed with a full life of family, friends and neighbors.  He was predeceased by his parents; Ollie Caplin and Ella Collins, his step-father; William (Doc) Collins, his wife; Betty Caplin, his sister; Helen Barker and his eldest son; Bill Caplin. 

 

He is survived by his children; Jeanene (Ray) Donilon of Merritt Island, Florida, Robert (Nancy) Caplin of Gainesville, Florida, Donna Caplin (Fred Rogers) of Nicholasville, Kentucky and his daughter-in-law; Jean Caplin of Lexington, Kentucky.  His eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren also survives him.  Ollie will be missed by all whose lives he touched.

 

Visitation will be from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm on Thursday, April 8, 2021 in the Chapel of Somerset Undertaking Company & Crematory. 

 

A Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 pm in the Funeral Home Chapel with Dr. Harold Brown officiating. 

 

Interment will be in the Somerset Cemetery.

 

The family of Ollie Caplin would like to thank the Central Baptist Cardiology Group of Lexington and the Veteran’s Administration, both in Somerset and in Lexington, Kentucky, for their many years of medical care services.  A special note of gratitude is extended also to Somerset Comfort Keepers, Encompass Home Health and FirstLight Home Care of Lexington, for their in-home caregiving services.

VIRGINIA BAUGH FLOYD

 

Virginia Mae Baugh Floyd ("Gran"), 88 years old, of Eubank, Kentucky, joined her husband and her son in eternity on March 30, 2021 at the home of her daughter, Kathy Floyd Isaacs, in Louisville, Kentucky.

 

Her daughter Kathy, her long time, loving caregiver of four years, Lilia Seguerra, and son in law, John, were by her bedside. She was born in the Texas Community (Pulaski County), Kentucky on June 14, 1932 to Viola Baugh. Her mother passed away tragically when she was only two years old.

 

She was raised by her grandparents, Willis and Minnie (Pierce) Baugh. At the age of fourteen, she had to drop out of school, due to her grandfather's death, and start working at the former Palm Beach Factory in Somerset. On February 25, 1950 she was married to Dean A. “Pud” Floyd, her childhood sweetheart. After living and working in Ohio for five years, she and Pud moved back to the Estesburg Community (Pulaski County) in Kentucky, where they remained dedicated dairy farmers until their retirement.

 

Later in life, after marriage and three children, she went to night school at Eubank High and earned her GED because education was so important to her. She was an avid reader and loved history.

 

Most of her life and until she was no longer able, she loved gardening, taking care of her grandchildren (and eventually enjoying her great grandchildren), and sitting on the front porch visiting family and friends. She enjoyed taking trips to town or to visit her grandchildren, but she was also very grateful to get back to the farm, her beloved home. She also kept a detailed daily diary until very recently. 

 

Virginia was a loving, caring, nurturing, strong, independent, honest, trustworthy, and sometimes even mischievous woman with a beautiful smile and an unconditional love for her family. She was a walking calendar (never forgot anyone's birthday) with an impeccable memory (especially when it came to family events). 

 

Virginia is survived by her daughters, Vickie Floyd Livesay of Eubank, Kentucky and Kathy Floyd (John) Isaacs of Louisville, Kentucky; her daughter-in-law Maribel Floyd of Eubank, Kentucky; four grandchildren, Melanie Livesay (Miles) Phelps of Lexington, Kentucky; Lou Ann Isaacs (Franz) Petzold of The Woodlands, Texas; John E. Isaacs, Jr. (Shelly) of Louisville, Kentucky; and Samuel J. Isaacs of Louisville, Kentucky; one step granddaughter, Lisa Isaacs (Brock) Lloyd of Louisville, Kentucky; four great grandchildren, Penielle Phelps of Lexington, Kentucky; Nikolas, Hannes and Liana Petzold of The Woodlands, Texas; three step granddaughters, Rebekah Lloyd (Ethan) Bauer, Michaela Lloyd, and Olivia Lloyd of Louisville, Kentucky; two grand dogs, Peanut and Annie Mae; as well as a host of cousins and precious friends. Virginia cherished every one of her loved ones dearly and worried about them daily. 

 

Virginia is preceded in death by her wonderful husband of 64 years, Dean A. (Pud) Floyd; her adored son, Joe Tom Floyd (who passed away just five short weeks ago, and whom she missed horribly and grieved for daily); her mother; and her grandparents. 

 

She was ready to see the Lord, who she spoke of daily, and we rejoice with her that she is now with HIM. 

 

Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. on Monday, April 5, 2021 at Pulaski Funeral Home.

 

The funeral service to honor Virginia's life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at the Pulaski Funeral Home.
