William Brazeal

Saltillo- William Lee Brazeal, 71, entered this life on January 9, 1952 and went to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 19, 2023 after battling three types of cancers for at least seven years.
William’s best days were spent watching his grandchildren play sports. He was a hard working, loyal and reliable man. He would be there to help his friends and family at the drop of a hat. William loved traveling to the mountains, spent a lot of his time on his porch and he loved to have things his way.

The family knows when William entered his Heavenly home; great joy was shared when he wrapped his arms around his first son, Chad, and his best friend, Bobby Sandlin. William was a member of First Baptist Church, Saltillo and he served his country in the United States Navy for two years.

William is survived by his wife of 51 years, Jean Brazeal; his son, Chris Brazeal; granddaughter, Lexi Brazeal; grandsons, Kaden Clark and Brady Brazeal; his mother, Betty; sister, Gale Brazeal; brothers, Marshal Brazeal and Wayne Brazeal and his wife, Marie; close friends, Jerry Duffie, David Floyd and a special second mother, Connie Herring Branyan; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Jane Aderholt, Debbie and Doug Vanlandingham, Hoyt Norris, and Sarah Brazeal.

He was preceded in death by his son, Chad Brazeal; father, Mack Brazeal; brothers, Andy, David, and Tim Brazeal.

Visitation will be 12 p.m. until service time Monday, January 23, 2023 at Pegues, Tupelo.
