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.
