Also surviving are his siblings Truman Owenby [Gail]; Ann Johnstone [Richard]; Shirley Garrett [Carlos].  As well as, many loving members of Mae's family.

Truett was an electrician by trade, working at Dixie Electric Company for over 40 years. He was a member of Crabapple First Baptist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. Although he lived in Alpharetta for years, Hiawassee was always home.
