Quentin Lovell DuPree, affectionately known as “Quent” or “Quincy”, was born August 6, 1967 in Gadsden, Alabama.


Quincy confessed Christ and was baptized under the leadership of Pastor John M. Woods at First Missionary Baptist Church in Alabama City, Alabama.

Later, Quincy moved to Dalton, Georgia in 1998 after being embraced by a former co-worker and friend, Fred Lockett and his family. There he was employed by Shaw Carpet Mill and later employed with the City of Dalton for over 16 years.
