Reggie Lott was born on May 6, 1932, in Lamar County to Clarence and Gladys Williamson Lott.  A beloved member of our community, he was an insurance adjuster with State Farm Insurance for over 30 years.

Mr. Lott finished high school at Carson and joined the United States Navy, where he proudly served for 4 years.  After his discharge from the military, he took his beautiful Patsy as his bride.  For many years, they lived in Pearl and raised a wonderful family before moving back home to Prentiss in 1991.  In addition to family time, Reggie also enjoyed several hobbies.  He had a passion for fishing and took pride in raising his garden right up until he was 90 years old.  A die-hard fan of Louis L’Amour, he loved reading as well as watching Westerns.  In addition to his Westerns, Mr. Lott enjoyed a good cup of coffee, complete with 2 packets of Sweet-n-Low.  He was a member of Carson Methodist Church.

Throughout his life, Reggie held dear his love for his family. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He cherished every moment spent with them.
