Mr. Cagle was a Navy Veteran having served a brief time at Pearl Harbor. He then came home and trained as a machine welder and retired from TVA after 32 years of service through Shop No. 2.
Mr. Cagle devoted his life to Christ in 1961, and began preaching, pastoring, singing, and teaching the word of God wherever God lead him. He loved to tell people of what Jesus had done for him. His prayer was always ended with "Save the lost. Amen." Mr. Cagle enjoyed Alabama football and Braves baseball and Newbern's Restaurant was his favorite catfish fix! Most of all, Mr. Cagle loved his family and cared for each and every one of them and prayed for all daily.
