Mr. Lott, 54, died Friday, Jan. 11, 2019.  He had many many friends of all ages. He was known as “Scooby” by all his friends throughout his working days and Murdock as well. By all the kids whom he loved so much, being just a big kid himself, he was known as Uncle Mur! As a kid himself Dr. John Long labeled him “Turnip Patch.” He was a truck driver by profession and loved the “big trucks” from an early age. He was a hard worker and enjoyed tinkering and just staying busy. He was so mechanically inclined from an early age.

He enjoyed the outdoors but mostly when he could be with the kids whether it be hunting, fishing or just hanging out.  Murray had the biggest heart ever and would do anything for anybody. His infectious smile and laughter could bring a smile to anyone’s face. One of his favorite things was eating momma’s cooking as he always said anything momma cooked was good.  He will missed greatly by his family and numerous friends.

Survivors are his wife of 17 years, Rhonda Lott; brother and best friend, Bill Lott of Hazlehurst; father-in-law, E. B. Magee; sister-in-law, Barbara Magee; nephew, Shane Lott (Catherine), Gin Bray (Jeoff), Tyler Lott, Allie Lott; two great-nephews; one great-niece; and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.
