Mr. Quattlebaum’s adventure began Aug. 5, 1927. He is a man who was proud to serve is country with the 82nd Airborne, a man who combined disciplined farm boy values and a savvy business mind to provide for his family, and a man who valued truth, honesty and hard work above all else.

His life is certainly one to be celebrated as it was filled with laughter, accomplishment, and love until his passing Wednesday, Jan. 23.
