EDDIE JOE JANES went to the Lord on Aug. 21, 2022,

He was 86 and was born in Ranger on June 17, 1963.
Eddie Joe graduated from Ranger High School in
1955 playing on the 1953 Bulldog State Football
team. He attended Ranger Jr. College and three
years at Hardin Simmons University in Abilene,
TX where he met his future wife, Brenda Carolyn
Brooks (RHS-1958), whom later passed in 2019.
Eddie was also in the Army National Guard of the
U.S. and Army National Guard of Texas, he was
honorably discharge with grade and rank of SP4
E4 in 1962 after serving 6 years. Eddie then
worked various jobs until he settled into Hunt
Petroleum Corporation and then retired in 1988.
After retirement they joined the shiftless Sam's
RV Club with their two small white poodles, Boomer
& Napoleon, they traveled the country enjoying life
to the fullest. When he wasn't RVing he was fishing,
hunting, or singing and playing his guitar. Eddie
was often told he strongly resembled Elvis, which
resulted in his incredible smile, laughter and
sparkling eyes. Eddie was one of the sweetest,
kindest, and giver of himself that his family ever
knew. He was loved by all who knew him, as
he loved them all back.
Eddie left behind four nieces, Linda, Brenda, Carol,
and Karen; two nephews, Bobby & Ronnie; great-niece,
Shonna; and great nephew, Jesse. He will be greatly
missed, however, we have so many precious memories
of our times together, we will always be reminiscing
about him. May he rest in peace until we meet again,
you will always be in our hearts!
