Lawrence “LC” Culberson, 76, passed away August 11, 2019. He was a pleaser, BBQ enthusiast, hunter, fisherman and accomplished motorhome traveler. He had a life-long love affair with deviled eggs, German chocolate cake, chargrilled oysters, JoJo’s homemade canned fruits and veggies, a good Greek salad and a pack of crackers with a coke. LC married his high school sweetheart, Joyce “JoJo” Culberson (McElhaney), almost 58 years ago, with whom he had two girls, Angie (Tim) Garrison of New Market, Tennessee, and Kim (Tony) Churchward of Ft Wayne, Indiana. In the beginning and in the end, JoJo was the one thing that mattered to him most. As for the girls…. he taught them to fish, ride horses, build fences, how to both drive and tear up any tractor and the value of a quality dog. LC was Papa to four grandsons and one great granddaughter, all of whom he took extreme pride in. He derived the most enjoyment from creating moments for them all….at the lake, on something motorized, on the road in the motorhome or around a fire. Ronald Eichel aka Ron Ron of Ft Wayne, Indiana (deceased), Jesse Eichel aka Jesse-Ray of New Market, Tennessee, Tyler Churchward aka Ty of Ft Wayne, Indiana, Ethan Churchward aka Bubba of Ft Wayne, Indiana and little Izze, Isabella Eichel of Carmel, Indiana were truly the apples of Papa’s eye. When not doting on his family, LC enjoyed a long and successful career as the Traffic Manager for Vulcraft/Nucor, St. Joe, Indiana. He began his career with Vulcraft soon after high school in Fort Payne, Alabama and moved his young family from Fort Payne, Alabama to Ft Wayne Indiana in 1973, converting them forever to the “Yankees” of the family! LC is preceded in death by his parents, Benton and Bamalean Culberson of Fort Payne, Alabama, but he is survived by many dear family and friends in both Indiana and Alabama. His sister and two brothers that he held so very close to his heart- Melba (Tony) Woods, Gary (Teresa) Culberson, both of Fort Payne, Alabama and Bruce Culberson of Chattanooga, Tennessee. He was much older than his siblings, so he had the honor of teaching them to drive, ride the calves rodeo style and he honed their skills at the honored family tradition of burning off the pastures. He is further survived by nephews Lance (Amy) Woods, Wyatt (Hannah) Woods of Fort Payne, Matthew Culberson of Jacksonville, Alabama and a niece, Jacy Culberson of Fort Payne, Alabama. LC loved a reliable pickup truck, a pretty quarter horse and in the day, he excelled at building most anything and fixing most anything with yellow rope and duct tape. He was diligent in donating blood as often as he could and encouraging others to do so. LC took fashion cues from no one. His signature everyday look was all his: a button up plaid shirt, most often paired with elastic waist pants or shorts paired with a stained Farmers Co-op or Bama baseball cap. As his health failed, he enjoyed sitting in his rocker in the garage, petting the neighborhood dogs, watching old westerns and remembering Lookout Mountain and his days spent in Valley Head and Mentone. Visitation will be held at Fairhaven Funeral Home, 6557 N Clinton St., Fort Wayne, Indiana on Thursday, August 15 from 3:00PM – 7:00PM. LC loved flowers, dogs and supporting a good cause. He’d be honored with any recognition or support of his loves. The family would also like to thank the Visiting Nurse of Ft Wayne staff who took great care of him over the past few months.

I was saddened to hear of Lawrence's passing. I know those closest to him will miss him dearly. I have fond memories of those visits to Ft Payne when I was a child. I am one of those many cousins around the age of his siblings but I remember him not only as being "all grown up" but being one of us. May God give you peace knowing he lived a great life, giving love and being loved.

Joyce, Angie, Kim you know Heaven has received another Angel. I am sure he and Don are looking for hot fudge cake and trying to figure out where Ethel is. LOL! So many wonderful memories to many to list. I know the next few days are going to be very busy, but God will be there always to help you through those days. You are all in my prayers and thoughts. Love you.
