DURHAM- Mr. Edwin “Ed” Leon Eubanks, Sr., 89, went to be with his Lord and Savior on October 9, 2021. Ed was born March 2, 1932, to the late John and Eula Eubanks.

Edwin loved the Lord and enjoyed fellowship at Sherron Acres Free Will Baptist Church, with his pastor Fred Johnson. He was a member of Durham Masonic Lodge 352. During his early work career, Ed started at Erwin Cotton mills as a loom fixer and became a roofer at Pope Roofing. He later became an HVAC technician, from which he retired after 22 years at Duke Engineering and Operating.

Edwin was known to many as “Pop.” Back in the days, you could find Pop on a softball field pitching fast pitch softball. He loved hunting, fishing, golfing, and growing bumper garden crops, which he shared with everyone.

He loved his family and companion dog “Little Dub,” and they will all miss him, until they meet again.
