Farming Rural 18

Paul Wayne Brannen

August 10, 1953 ~ December 23, 2020 (age 67)


Mr. Paul Wayne Brannen, age 67, passed away December 23, 2020 at East Georgia Regional Medical Center after an extended illness. Paul was born in Statesboro, Georgia August 10, 1953 to Paul Wesley and Margaret Brinson Brannen and remained in Statesboro all his life.

He always loved the outdoors and chose to become a farmer and rancher.  He enjoyed the smell of good soil freshly turned up, tending his cattle and riding horses when he was able. Bird hunting and fishing also allowed him to experience what God had given him.  But he also had an artistic side—loving music and playing in many bands around the Bulloch County community. Along with loving his family he loved the Lord and was of the Baptist Faith.

Paul is preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived, loved by, and will be missed by his sons, Bryan Paul Brannen and David Wayne Brannen both of Statesboro; his daughter, Deanna Zimmerman (Patrick) of Savannah; and his precious two-year-old granddaughter, Olive June Zimmerman of Savannah.

The funeral will be in the Chapel of Deal Funeral Directors on Monday, December 28 at 11:00 AM officiated by Elder John Scott. Interment will follow immediately at Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church. The family will receive visitors at Deal Funeral Directors on Sunday, December 27 from 4:00-6:00 PM.

Pallbearers will be Josh Brannen, Jason Brannen, Trey Renfroe, Jason Sanchez, and Lane Sanchez.
