Kindness and gentleness were normal for you.
Patience and godliness were prominent too.
You were faithful to your family and in all that you did.
You persevered and worked hard until the very end.
You were content with little and never asked for a lot.
You served our country proudly and bravely you fought.
Your mind was spun of tales and wisdom;
And all the day long you’d listen to Hank Williams.
Working your puzzles and herding the cows,
“To Grandma forever” you honored your vows.
A hard working farmer you spent days in the field;
All these and more, memories we cannot yield.
As we cherish the godly example you set,
We realize your life’s not over yet.
For in our hearts you’re always alive,
Through memories passed down your legacy will thrive.
“But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope” – 1 Thessalonians 4:13
My Great Grandfather, John Eagleman, passed on Sunday, January 17th, 2016. He was the man every young man should strive to be! He was the kind of man I will look for in a future husband…Besides my parents, he and my Great Grandmother (who is still living) are my biggest role-models and most are the most influential people in my life. Grandpa will be sorely missed! He will be missed by more people than just his 4 children, 9 grandchildren, and 24 great-grandchildren. He was well known in town and also highly respected in his community. He was called “uncle” and “grandpa” by more people than just his relatives. He was loved by many…
Forever in my heart and memories always in my mind…I love you Grandpa!!
