Garland Eugene Lauderdale went to be with the Lord on November 6, 2017. Garland was a man of faith and will be greatly missed. He never met a stranger and would give to anyone in need. He loved the Goodwill and NASCAR. Garland was a wonderful husband, dad and papa. He was a dedicated employee of Hanover Middle School. Garland was survived by his wife, Pam, his children, Marie Lauderdale (Lew), Larissa Eickleberry, Christina Loeffler (Bryan), Deanna Middleton (Kevin), Joshua Lauderdale (Jessica) and nine grandchildren: Cody, Elena, Zakhery, Jazmine, Clyea, Cash, Willow, Paityn, Bradyn and sister Barbara Scheeringa (John). His memory will live on through those that loved him.
Visitation will be held on November 10, 2017 at Pentecostals of Southlake Church in Merrillville from 12:00-2:00 p.m. with a service to follow. In lieu of flowers financial donations to the family would be greatly appreciated.
