Paul E. Culpepper

Paul E. Culpepper, age 90, went home to be with the God he loved on March 19, 2021. Born in Detroit, Michigan, on July 4, 1930, Paul was the son of the late Tillah Ford and John Wesley Culpepper.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 64 years, Juline (Lee) Culpepper; son, John Culpepper (Luane), Signal Mountain, Tennessee, son, Gary Culpepper (Tammy), Nashville, Tennessee, and daughter, Carol Haremski (Mike), Knoxville, Tennessee; and six grandchildren, Mary Claire Culpepper, Davis Culpepper, Caroline Culpepper, Wesley Culpepper, Katie Haremski and Steven Haremski.

Paul was preceded in death by his parents, John Wesley and Tillah Ford Culpepper, brothers, Dalton, Gobel and Robert, and sisters, Oneida, Marjorie and Doris, and his parents-in-law, Van and Rose Lee.

Paul served a short time in the U.S. Army following the end of World War II. He worked as a design engineer for Chrysler Corporation for 30 years. In 1986, he and his wife Juline retired to Cookeville, Tennessee, where he could spend time with his children and grandchildren. Paul was a very active member of Faith Baptist Church in Sparta, Tennessee, where he served as treasurer for many years.
Paul was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. Upon learning of a person in need, he was an eager and supportive friend. He enjoyed the outdoors, traveling, sports and spending time with family.
The family would like to express their thanks and appreciation to all the staff at The Meadows Senior Community in Bellevue, Tennessee and Caris Healthcare for the care provided to Paul.
An outdoor funeral service will be held on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at Crest Lawn Funeral Home, 800 W. Jackson Street, Cookeville, Tennessee. Visitation will be at 2:00pm (central time) with the service to follow at 2:45pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Faith Baptist Church, 640 Maughon Rd., Sparta, TN 38583 or the Alzheimer’s Association, P.O. Box 41428, Nashville, Tennessee 37204.
