Lotis was a 50 year plus employee of Long Manufacturing, N.C., Inc. where he enjoyed working with and building tooling that supported the manufacturing processes. He retired from Long Manufacturing, N.C., Inc. and continued working at Walmart for an additional 11 years. He always shared a hug and a handshake with all that entered. He loved his Walmart family and his friends that visited him on a regular basis.
Lotis loved Softball, fishing, and camping. He always wanted family and friends to share with him and be a part of these experiences that he loved so much. Lotis loved his Church and Church family, but his greatest love was his love for God. After being Baptized his love for God grew and grew and you could see that love in his face when he shared his testimony with any that would listen. He was a true man of God, loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and uncle to all.
The family will receive friends and relatives at other times at the home of Rodney and Lori Brewer, 1701 Preston Drive, Tarboro, N.C. 27886.
