Curtis Lee Freeman

June 6, 1945 — January 26, 2021

Curtis Lee Freeman, 75, of Paris passed away on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 in Paris.

A graveside service is set for Friday, January 29, 2021 at 10:00 am in the Evergreen Cemetery Open Air Chapel under the direction of Roden Pryor Funeral Directors. Pastor Billy Norris will officiate.

 Curtis was born on June 6, 1945 to Robert E. Lee and Maggie Carroll Freeman in Paris. Curtis married the love of his life Sandra Kay Braswell on April 8, 1965. They went on to live a life filled with love and happiness. He was in the National Guard and retired from Camp Maxey as a mechanic in 1991 after thirty years of service. Curtis was a strong-willed and stubborn man, but he had a kind heart. He was a hard worker. He was a devoted loving husband and a kind compassionate Dad. To his grandchildren, he was the best PaPaw you could ever have! He was a master wood craftsman, an avid fisherman and a skilled designer of cakes, even the occasional wedding cake.

 Preceding him in death are his parents, sister Billie Jo Graham and brother-in-law Teddy Staggs.

 Survivors include his wife, daughter Michelle Brazeal and husband Jeff, sons Sean Freeman and wife Janell and Curtis Freeman and wife Geanie; grandchildren, Brandon Brazeal, Rachel Beaird and husband Alec, Andrew Freeman, Mandy Freeman and Ashleigh Freeman; sisters Patricia Roberts and husband Mike and Priscilla Staggs, niece Sherry Kay Willhite, nephew Michael O’Dea and special furry friend and companion Abbie.
