Freeman Offit Seritt

Mr. Freeman Offit Seritt, 91, of Shannon passed away Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2007, at Erlanger Medical Center following a short illness. He was born Oct. 6, 1916, in Floyd County, son of the late Wylie and Susan Jenette Seritt.

Mr. Seritt was preceded in death by his first wife, Lillie Maude Cleary Seritt, and two of his sons, William G. (Janice) Seritt, and Freddie L. Seritt as well as his siblings, Reece, Cleave, and Jack Seritt and Gaude Pettit.

He served in the South Pacific during World War II and lived and worked in North Georgia almost all of his life. He loved his family and liked nothing better than to have them all gather around. The latest gathering was on his 91st birthday, Oct. 6, 2007, when he had a great time visiting with everyone and riding his motorized scooter. He was known as "Cut" by his brickyard friends (he always cut down his vehicles to become trucks). We fondly remember his love of gospel music, gardening and tinkering with things. He continued to work with scrap metal almost until the end. These endeavors and his family kept him going. Devoted husband, father, and "Pawpaw," lives in us all and will always be remembered with love and affection.

Mr. Seritt is survived by his loving wife Brenda Greeson Seritt; and children, Danelle (Dale) Kerns, Marvin (Vicki) Seritt, Shirley (Mike) Parker, Patsy (Edgar) Shiver, Jerry (Lynn) Seritt, Bertie (Trammell) Putnam, Mary Jo (Alan) Cables, Brenda (Glen) Elrod, Vergie (Steve) Dean, and Deborah (Mike) Taylor. He is also survived by 37 grandchildren, 56 great grandchildren, and 13 great-great grandchildren, as well as numerous very special nieces and nephews.

Services for Mr. Freeman Offit Seritt are Friday at 2 p.m. from the Calhoun Church of Christ with Marvin Seritt, Minister Jule Meaders, and Minister Joey Haynes officiating. Mr. Seritt will lie in state from 1 p.m. until the funeral hour at the church.

Burial will be in the Resaca Church of Christ Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the funeral home today after noon.

Pallbearers serving will include Junior Seritt, Chris Seritt, Landon Wells, Anthony Seritt, Grady Shiver, Bobby Elrod, Cordell Seritt, and Dawson Curns. These gentlemen are asked to meet at the funeral home at 12:30 p.m. on Friday.
