Born August 29, 1948, in Rome, Georgia, he was the son of the late John Wesley Sauls, Sr. and Mary Glausier Sauls. Mr. Sauls lived his life in such a manner that he was an inspiration to many. He was a excellent example of what a husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and humble servant to our Lord should be. Mr. Sauls was a faithful team member of Lippert Components for over 48 years. His selfless attitude and honest work ethic as a Director of Sales led to Lippert Components creating the Wesley Sauls Team Member of the Year Award which is given to employees who exhibited the same ethic and virtue Mr. Sauls showed others every day in his work. He accomplished a great deal in his life, but his most important accomplishment was always his family that he cherished so much. Mr. Sauls was the epitome of a diehard FSU fan who was known to consider Faith, Family and FSU to be the 3 most important things in his life. He was a faithful member of First Baptist Church Moultrie where he did his best to live as an example of God’s love towards others. The positive effects of his attitude and thoughtful actions for others will continue to resound in the hearts of many as a testimony to a life well lived in service to others. ‘GO NOLES’ !
