Freeman Lloyd ("Manny") UptonOctober 26, 1981 ~ July 31, 2017 (age 35)
Manny was a great son, brother and friend. He was always there for everyone. He would drop everything at once to help a friend or someone in need. He truly enjoyed his job at Red Oak Landscaping, had a genuine love for trains and a passion for hot air ballooning. He was so unique and brought joy and laughter to every room he entered!
He is survived by his mother, Freda Upton of Tulsa; his father and step-mother Charlie and Pat Upton of Tulsa; his big brother Roy Upton and wife Amanda of Myrtle Beach, SC; nieces and nephews whom he adored; several Aunts and Uncles and very close cousins as Manny kept family very near and dear to his heart.
He was preceded in death by a brother, Michael Dean Upton of Tulsa; maternal grandparents Freeman & Geraldine Benedict of Tulsa; paternal grandparents Lloyd and Mary Upton of Tulsa; and an aunt, Cheryl Upton of Sapulpa.
He will be missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him and spending time with him.
Many of his friends have said they hope he's flying high with the hot air balloons he loved. Peace to our brother until we meet again!
