Thomas Gene Eddings
November 4, 1944 – July 28, 2019
Thomas Gene Eddings entered into his eternal resting place on July 28, 2019. Tommy was a well-respected cowboy throughout the state. He made everyone laugh and left them with a smile. He tipped his hat to all the pretty ladies (everyone was pretty to him).
Tommy graduated from Lemoore High School in 1963. He was a long time Rodeo participant. He won Bronc Riding at Cow Palace in 1964 and State Saddle Champ in 1970. He was a long time pick-up man. He worked at Cal King prior to working for Jack Stone as a Cattle Ranch Foreman since 1987. He owned and ran a 10 acre ranch for over 20 years while working for the Stones. The family would like to thank Diana Lavin for all of her help.
Tommy was preceded in death by his father Ed “Doc” Eddings. He is survived by his wife Angie Eddings, his mother Denver Eddings, his son Shawn (Kirk Carter) Eddings, his ex-wife Rainy Waters, his step-children: Torey Garcia, Amber (Norbert) Alves, grandchildren: Jordan Alves, Molly Alves as well as numerous other family members and friends dear to his heart.
