James David Eunice

VALDOSTA — James David Eunice, 17, of Valdosta, drowned while duck hunting at Ocean Pond in Lake Park on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011, and was found on Monday, Jan. 31, 2011. James was born in Athens, Ga., on June 16, 1993, and had lived in Georgia, Massachusetts, Ohio, Guam, Illinois and South Carolina. James was a senior at Valdosta High School where he was a member of the football and baseball team.

Faithful, loving and trustworthy are just a few words to describe James.

Wherever he was his presence was definitely known. James was very involved at Crosspointe Church, a 4.0 student involved in the international baccalaureate program at Valdosta High School. He was a member of FCA, a football player, baseball player, a guitarist, a hunter, a fisherman, a faithful friend, wonderful son, an amazing brother, but the title he treasured most was obedient follower of Christ.

Survivors include his parents, John and Tammy Eunice; his brother, John Eunice; his sister, Lindsey Eunice; grandparents, Wallace and Betty Allbritton, all of Valdosta, Rita Eunice of Folkston; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, J.L. Eunice Jr.
