Jimmy was faithful in serving his country through the United States Navy, Special Forces.  He was a very generous, kind person towards others.  Jimmy was a very intelligent man and worked well with his hands.  He enjoyed repairing guns as well as practice shooting. Being outdoors was one of Jimmy’s favorite things to do, and in his free time he liked camping. Being in nature always brought him a sense of peace. Jimmy was known for being an avid baseball fan, especially when it came to little league. Nothing got him going like a little competitive baseball game. He was Baptist by faith. 

Jimmy is survived by his sons, Johnny Ray Eddins and James William Eddins; daughter, Katie Crofoot; brother, W.H. “Dub” Eddins; sisters, Barbara Jean Corbell and Joyce Hughes; numerous grandchildren, other family and friends.
