The life of Alan Davis Kernodle will be celebrated with a graveside service Saturday July 5, 2014, at 10:30 a.m. at Trinity Memorial Park.
Alan left for his Heavenly home Wednesday July 2, 2014, in Big Spring, Texas. At 88, Alan had a thumbs up and a hearty â€śhelloâ€ť for friends and family and no one was a stranger.
Alan met his sweetheart, Undine DeBruler, in Burlington, N.C. shortly before moving to Big Spring. He then called for her a year later to be his bride. They married in 1952 and recently celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary. Alan worked for 31 years as an electrician for Cosden Oil & Chemical. He served as a deacon at the First Christian Church of Big Spring and as a member of the Evening Lions Club. After retirement from Cosden, he delivered prescriptions for Leonardâ€™s Pharmacy and painted homes. His favorite pasttimes were watching high school softball, any baseball game and cat napping while watching television. He was a devoted father to Katie and Alana for most of his life.
His memory is cherished by his wife, Undine Kernodle of Big Spring; daughter, Katie and her husband Glen Grigg of Ackerly; grandson, J. D. and his wife Carrie Grigg of Odessa; granddaughter, Tinsey Grigg of Lubbock; as well as countless other family and friends.
He is preceded in death by daughter Alana, eight brothers and two sisters.
