Paul Brockett, 59


Mr. Paul Brockett, age 59, of Lafayette passed away suddenly on
Tuesday evening September 6, from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
Funeral services for Mr. Paul Brockett were conducted Friday, Sept. 9th at 2
p.m. from the Alexander Funeral Home with Comer Meadows officiating. Interment
followed in the Anderson Memorial Park.


Paul was born on June 14,
1952 in Wilson County, Tennessee to the late Willard Cordell and Willa Dean
Glover Brockette. Paul was a graduate of Red Boiling Springs High
School. He married his childhood sweetheart, the former Shelia Robinson on
December 6, 1973, sharing 37 years together and raising one son and one
daughter; Shelia survives. Paul was currently employed as Hatchery Processor at
the Cobb-Vantress Company here in Lafayette, Tennessee. “Truly a Family Man” is
what everyone would say about Paul. His family is what he revolved around. Paul
enjoyed visiting his son’s home, there they would get out on their
four-wheelers and ride across Phillip’s land. Paul, along with Shelia and
Phillip went to classes and received their gun permits, so quite often they
would get out and target shoot together. His children and grandbabies were his
pride and joy, and it was no secret that his family loved him, too. The
grandbabies never came to visit without Gandad having something for
them. Paul and Shelia loved getting out with their friends riding motorcycles
and going on vacation. He could spend the weekend on his bike with Shelia
sitting behind him.
He was a member of the Willette Church of Christ and
will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. Paul leaves behind; his
loving Wife, Shelia Robinson Brockette of Lafayette, TN, Son, Phillip Brockette

and Megan Haymaker all of Gallatin, TN, Sisters, Ruth Kirkland of Hendersonville,
TN, and Dorothy (Gary) Grissom of Gallatin, TN, several Nieces, Nephews,
