Woodward, Okla. - After 4 decades as an undertaker, Allen Loges has decided to under take some "new ventures." The longtime funeral director was honored by Woodward Mayor Roscoe Hill during a retirement ceremony on Friday, Aug. 31.  The mayor presented Loges with a certificate in recognition of his "many years of service to the families of Northwest Oklahoma." Loges has been involved in the funeral service industry since 1971, when he started as a part-time worker at a funeral home in Alva while attending college. From Alva he eventually moved on to work at Shaw Funeral Home in Vici, where he worked for 20 years. "Then I managed Good Samaritan from 2000 to 2008," he said. He has spent the last 4 years of his career at Billings Funeral Home. "It's been an honor to serve the families of Northwest Oklahoma," Loges told The News during a brief retirement ceremony held in his honor at Billings Funeral Home on Friday. While his career began as a part-time job during college, Loges said "death has always interested me, the mystery aspect of it and the spiritual aspect of it, because for Christians we believe we go on to see God." In fact, he told The News that he continued in the funeral service field, because "the longer I worked in the field, the more I felt God calling me to this as my profession." He said he has found funeral work to be a way for him to minister and be of service to his fellow man. "I feel it's a real honor to walk with families in their time of loss," Loges said.  "Because you've not only helped care for their deceased loved ones, but you've helped care for the families as well by helping them get through a difficult time." Just as with his other career decisions, Loges said he felt God's guidance telling him it was now time to retire. "I prayed about it and felt God was telling me it was time to move on to new ventures and new opportunities," he said. "In the meantime, I might also do a little trout fishing," Loges said. In addition to the certificate from the mayor, Loges also received a couple of other special retirement gifts on Friday.  His now former co-workers from Billings Funeral Home presented him with a stainless steel watch from Mead Jewelers which had been engraved with "Thank you for your service, 2012. After 4 decades as an undertaker, Allen Loges has decided to under take some "new ventures."
