Herb Cauthen

Herbert “Herb” Neal Cauthen, of Pima and formerly of Casa Grande, went to be with his wife July 11, 2022. He was 68. Herb was born January 17, 1954, in Llano, Texas, to Billy and Pearl Joiner. A few years later he was adopted by his dad, George Cauthen.

As a child, Herb’s family moved a lot and at the age of 17, Herb joined the United States Army where he served proudly.

Herb was a true cowboy who loved his Coors, fishing, and riding horses. He had many jobs but retired from Felix Construction with the intent to live his life. However, his cancer won the race.

Herb is preceded in death by: his wife, Glenda Cauthen; maternal and paternal grandparents; his dad, George; and sister, Vickey Joiner.

He leaved behind: his mom, Pearl Cauthen; son, Justin (Tracy) Cauthen; sister, Diane Cauthen; brothers, Art (Ruby) Cauthen, Jimmy (Becky) Cauthen and Everett (Jen) Cauthen; grandson, Zeke Cauthen; granddaughter, Zoey Cauthen; many nieces, nephews and friends who will never forget him.

A Celebration of Herb’s Life will be conducted Friday, July 22, 2022, at 2:00 p.m., at Vining Funeral Home’s “Chapel of the Valley.” Military honors will be conferred by the Gila Valley Veterans Honor Guard.

In lieu of flowers, Herb’s family suggests donations in his honor be placed at the charity of your choosing.

Herb has taught me so much not just in the electrical trade but in life. You are missed already.

It’s with a heavy heart that I have to announce a farewell to a friend and Industry comrade of 30 years. Mr. Herb Cauthen.

Herb has been a fixture of my life since the early 90’s and three Companies, completing his career with Felix.

I met Herb when running a Tower Project at Ross Abbot in Casa Grande where he lived.

Herb starting his water superintendent-ship performing construction for the Val Vista WTP 80 MGD expansion Project.

His skill set as a Superintendent across all trades have yet to be surpassed!

He was friendly, humorous but serious and provided great mentorship to those under his guise.

Herb was a true “Marlboro Man” Cowboy to the end.

He was happy to sit down with you, pop a Coors Banquet, and enjoy conversation and laughter.

Herb loved to have a great day fishing or riding and caring for his horses and donkey!!

He will be missed but never forgotten!!
