John Folsom

Valdosta, Georgia

I have a bachelor's degree in Accounting and Finance from Valdosta State University. I worked in corporate accounting in Tifton, GA, Valdosta, GA, Tallahassee, FL, and Atlanta, GA from 1981 until 1992. In 1992 my intestines ruptured and I subsequently spent several years in various hospitals in Georgia and Florida going through various surgeries to get my health back. I am currently disabled and am happily married to my best friend and soul mate, Cathy Culpepper. Cathy and I have been best friends since we were in the 7th grade at Hahira Junior High School way back in 1972! We got married on October 7, 1989 so we have now been married 21+ years. We were not able to have any children of our own together, so we enjoy spoiling our many nieces and nephews! We continue to stay in close contact with our closest and best friends from high school such as Dena Sue Earnest Watts, Chris Coleman, Sherry Perdue Flynt, and Rick Flynt. We are currently living back home in Valdosta after several years working and enjoying living in Tallahassee, Florida and then in Atlanta, Georgia. We did enjoy our many friendships and experiences in Tallahassee and Atlanta, but are very happy to be back in Valdosta where both our families still reside.
