Eugene Cattlin, Sr was born July 30, 1928, in Redwood to the late Dave and Margaret Cattlin, Sr. He was one of 3 children.
He accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Evergreen M. B. Church. His love for the Lord had no bounds.
He was affectionately known as Daddy Gene by his family but was known by everyone as a man of God.
Eugene was united in holy matrimony to the late Beatrice Gee Cattlin in March of 1952 and 4 children were born from this union.
He was a very hardworking man who never let his labor be in vain. He set the example of being a family man who always provided for his family.
He was employed by the Flowerree Planting Company for years and was well respected by his peers. In addition to working there, Eugene had his own farming business called Cattlin Farms in which he produced cotton and soybeans.
Eugene was a faithful Deacon of Evergreen M. B. Church until it closed. He then attended St Mark M. B. Church faithfully until his health prevented him from doing so. He loved to read the Bible and study Sunday School lessons and tell others about the goodness of God. His family was very important to him, but what he wanted more than anything was for his family to know the Lord. His Christian life will forever remain an influence in the lives of all who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife Beatrice, his daughter Margaret, his father Dave, Sr, his mother Margaret and brother Dave Jr.
