Cisero Brassel, son of the late Fletcher Brassell and Ollie Mae Bibbs, was born May 11, 1949 in Panola County Mississippi. Cisero was one of nine children. He received his elementary education in the Panola County Schools. He accepted Christ at an early age and became a member of Sandy Springs MB Church in Batesville MS. After moving to Oxford, Cisero united with Providence UM Church.
Cisero earned a living by driving. He was a gravel truck driver for Oxford Sand and Gravel for several years. Cisero loved football, but he didn’t care much for high school football, and his favorite professional football team was the New Orleans Saints. He also enjoyed cooking, fishing, and playing spades. And as a young child, he enjoyed playing baseball with his siblings.
In 2002, Cisero chose the woman that would become his life long mate, Verlean Carothers, and they remained together enjoying a happy life until he was called home to be with the Lord. On Monday morning, March 1, 2021, while at Baptist Memorial Hospital/NM, Cisero went peacefully to sleep.
Cisero is lovingly remembered by the love of his life, his loving companion: Verlean Carothers of Oxford MS; and Verlean’s grand daughter, Keatrice Houston, whom he raised as his own; his sisters: Martha Westbrook, and Emma Carothers of Oxford MS; his brother: Jim (Audrea) Brassell of Nashville TN; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
Cisero was preceded in death by his parents: Fletcher Brassell and Ollie Mae Brassell; and his siblings: C. T. Brassell, R.B. Brassell, Georgia Mae Smith, Marie Joiner, and Louise Toliver.
Please keep the Verlean and the Brassel family in your prayers.
