Eddie passed away peacefully on February 23, 2021, at 62 years old, in Crescent City, CA. He was born in Fort Bragg, CA to Thelma and Joel Owings. He was the first graduate from Sunset High School in 1976. Eddie was known as a storyteller and jokester to those that knew him. He was a dedicated son and cared for his mother Thelma for many years. Most will remember him for his contagious laughter. His favorite past times were playing with his dogs, cooking, and gardening. He was a man of strong faith and would worship often at the church formerly known as Oceanview Baptist.
He made many lifelong friends through his fishing adventures. Being a commercial fisherman, and eventually Captain of the F/V Carmelia Maria, was his livelihood for many years.
He leaves behind his two children Cara Owings and Emily Reed (Thomas) and he leaves behind his fiancé, Angelina, of 15 years. He also leaves behind Theresa Johnson and her two adult children Ronnie and Joann Johnson, a great niece and nephew, and his three granddaughters Annalena, Tee-me’, and Marlee Reed.
He is preceded in death by his mother and father Thelma and Joel, and his sister Lola Owings.
Private family services were held. He will be deeply missed by all those that knew him.
