Mr. Breed was born Nov. 11, 1940, in Heard County, Ga., to the late Jessy Ripley Breed and Sally Fannie Shepherd Breed. He was Christian by faith. He was a hard-working man who dedicated his career to Uniroyal, where he worked as a textile spinning technician. Over the years he used his ingenuity to fix machines that malfunctioned and was able to find solutions to many problems he encountered on the job. He loved to work with electronics and even managed to make his own devices and radios. He enjoyed talking on and listening to the CB radio. His own personal CB handle was “Train Man.” He was a pleasant man who never met a stranger and a loving brother and uncle to his extended family.
