Camden Sudduth, 90, of Red Bluff, California, passed away of natural causes on April 13, 2013. A private memorial service will be held in Red Bluff.
Cam was born January 19, 1923, in Temple, Oklahoma, to Alma and Jefferson Sudduth. He was the sixth of seven children, with three brothers and three sisters. In 1936 Cam and the rest of the family packed up, followed in the footsteps of the older brothers, and made their way to the Imperial Valley, settling in Holtville, California. During WWII, from 1941 to 1945, Cam joined the United States Air Force and served his country in the Pacific Campaign.
In 1947 he met his beloved wife, Thelma Brown, and they were married in the Gretna Green Wedding Chapel in Yuma, Arizona. They moved from Imperial Valley in 1950 and lived in the Salinas Valley area while raising their two children. Cam worked in the farming industry and was then employed by the County of Monterey, where he retired. Cam and Thelma lived in Oregon for a time before settling in Red Bluff near their daughter. He enjoyed life and was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and a friend to many.
He was preceded in death by his wife Thelma; his son Larry; his brothers J. T. and Avon; and his sisters Nora Lee Lovas, Theona Gayle, and Pauline Jessee.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law Peggy and Terry Culligan of Red Bluff, California; his grandchildren Jennifer (Manny) Goulart and Patrick (Lydia) Culligan of Red Bluff; Jeremiah (Leighan) Sudduth of Sacramento, California; Michelle Sudduth of Austin, Texas; and Debra (Todd) Jordon of San Antonio, Texas; 15 great-grandchildren; his brother Leon (Dorothy) Sudduth of Holtville, California; and many nieces and nephews.
