Joey Loudermilk Obituary

Joey A. Loudermilk, a cherished pillar of the Columbus, Georgia community, passed away peacefully on March 23, 2024, at the age of 92, in the same town where he was born on August 17, 1931. Known affectionately as Joey to his friends and family, he lived a life marked by love, humor, and intellect, leaving behind a legacy of warmth and wisdom that will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.

A celebration of Life service will be held 11: 00 AM Friday, March 29, 2024 at Bethesda Baptist Church with Rev. Dr. Steve Stewart and Rev. David Helms officiating. The family will receive friends Friday from 10:00 to 11:00 AM at the church.

Joey is survived by his loving wife of 71 years, Doris Pansy Loudermilk, with whom he shared an unbreakable bond of devotion and partnership. His legacy continues through his children, Joey Loudermilk (Ramona), Gregg Loudermilk (Kristy), Darren Loudermilk and Melissa Loudermilk Tucker (Mike). His life was further enriched by his cherished grandchildren, Matt Loudermilk (Jodi), Justin Loudermilk (Natasha), Jenny Loudermilk Hord (Daniel), Joanna Loudermilk Tucker (Dalvin), John Mark Loudermilk (Brianna), Jackson Loudermilk, Grant Loudermilk (Kelly), Adam Loudermilk, Lila Loudermilk, Crystal Phillips (Logan), Jake Loudermilk, Macey Tucker Sanders (Josh), and Mitch Tucker, and by the joyous laughter of 15 great-grandchildren.

A proud graduate of Jordan High School, Joey furthered his education at Piedmont College. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to become a respected small business owner, co-founding Bi-City Paint and Decorating Co., a venture that would not only contribute to the local economy but also allow him to express his creative passion.

Joey's commitment to his community was unwavering. As a member of the board of the National Decorating Products Association and the Optimist Club, he demonstrated his dedication to service and leadership. His tenure as past president of Pioneer Little League showcased his love for nurturing young talent. Joey also devoted time to volunteering with Mission Columbus, embodying the spirit of giving back.

An avid reader and sports enthusiast, Joey's zest for life was evident in his active involvement in athletics. He was a Champion Youth baseball and football Coach, a role that allowed him to influence the lives of many young athletes. Even in his later years, he continued to play with the Senior Softball league, exemplifying his lifelong commitment to health and camaraderie. His love for golf was only matched by his fervent support for the University of Georgia Football Program and the Atlanta Braves, teams he followed with unwavering loyalty.

Joey's spiritual life was as rich as his secular activities. A dedicated member of Bethesda Baptist Church and a former member of Morningside Baptist Church, he served as a Sunday School Teacher and Deacon, sharing his faith and wisdom generously with his congregation.

Those who knew Joey would describe him as loving, funny, and intelligent—a man whose laughter could light up a room and whose advice was sought after for its depth and insight. His presence was a comfort, his guidance a beacon, and his memory will be a treasure to all who had the privilege of experiencing his kindness and wit.

The family would like to thank the staff of Columbus Hospice for the loving care and support.
