Addie Courtney, loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away on Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 at Blanchard Valley Hospital in Findlay, Ohio.

Addie is survived by his wife, Dawne (Lugibihl) Courtney, his two children: Julie Ellcessor (David) and Tim Courtney. He had six grandchildren that he adored: Madison Ellcessor, Ryan Ellcessor, Brevin Luna, Nate Luna, Nick Luna, and Abby Courtney. He has three brothers: Brad Courtney, Perry Courtney (Lisa), and Wes Courtney, a sister, Robbin Poland, and his father-in-law David Lugibihl. Additionally, he is survived by his lifelong best friend who was like a brother to him, Erin Cox.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Ramona (Dodge) Courtney and his mother-in-law Sherlyn Lugibihl.

Addie was born on July 30th, 1950 in Lima, Ohio to William and Ramona Jean (Dodge) Courtney. He joined the United States Air Force and served our country bravely.

Addie was always active. He was an outdoorsman, loving to fish, hunt, golf and spend time at Landers’ quarry with friends. He also enjoyed bowling and participated in multiple leagues throughout the years (his children recall never being able to win a game!). He loved cooking with his wife, Dawne, and friend, Erin, always wanting to come up with new creations. He adored his dog, Snickers and enjoyed his company all the time. His personality was larger than life — he was always making people laugh and smile.

Addie’s pride and joy were his grandchildren. His smile always grew larger when he was with them and he always made sure to make them feel loved. In fact, his grandchildren were always greeted with his smile and a “guess what?” to which he would respond with a joyous “I love you!”. He was a family man, making sure to send a text every morning to his children and grandchildren wishing them a happy birthday and making sure to remind them that he loved them. With him rising early, his children and grandchildren would often wake up to these texts and be reminded of his presence, comfort and love. He will be deeply missed by all of those that had the pleasure of knowing him and being loved by him.

The family will receive friends from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Monday, March 22, 2021 at CHILES-LAMAN FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES, EASTSIDE CHAPEL, where a funeral service will immediately follow at 11:00 AM.

Pastor Brian Vernon will officiate the service.

Interment will be in Memorial Park Cemetery where military honors will be conducted by VFW Post 1275 and active duty members of the Air Force.
