Willie Fluellen Obituary

Willie Lee Fluellen was born on May 15, 1953, to the late Willie J. “Bo” Fluellen and Susie Lee Brown Fluellen.  Willie Lee joined Pearson Chapel AME Church when he was a little boy. He was a fun loving and happy child growing up.  He and his siblings grew up in a community with lots of family members and Willie was the family joker and prankster.  He kept everyone laughing most of the time.  He attended the public schools of Hancock County and graduated from Hancock Central in 1972. He enlisted and served in the United States Army.  After his time in the military Willie was employed by Masterack of Atlanta as an installer customizing maintenance trucks, high-roof commercial vans and utility vehicles. On the weekends you could find Willie Lee parking cars and the Georgia Dome when there was a game going on. Willie retired from Friendship Baptist Church where he worked as their Security Officer for more than twenty years.

Willie Lee met, and married Lounell Pinkston and they were married for more than thirty-one years.
