Eddy was born in Memphis, TN, on April 14, 1964, to Bobby Wayne Williams and Catherine Marie (Hoskins) Williams. Eddy was an OTR Truck Driver and was gifted with an intelligent, mechanical mind. He is most known and loved for his kind and gentle soul. He touched many lives while on this earth from the abundance of generosity that he showed towards others. Eddy would selflessly give anyone the shirt off his back and or a warm place to sleep. He enjoyed fishing, watching the sunrise, great music infused with a strong story (His favorite was George Strait), but most of all, Eddy loved being surrounded by friends and family. He had no shortage of either as he never met a stranger. All who knew him deeply adored him. Eddy professed his faith in Jesus Christ and had peace as he entered into eternity.
His generous spirit will live on through his two children, Jessica Renee Garner (Tyler) and Billy Thomas Leatherwood, as well as his granddaughter, Sayler Raine Garner. Eddy also leaves behind his stepdad Shelby Joe Mauney, Sr of Byhalia, MS, his two sisters, Angela Youngblood Hawkins (Joe) of Dunlap, IL. Amanda Mauney Johnson (Michael) of Collierville, TN, and his brother, Shelby Joe “Joey” Mauney, Jr of Byhalia, MS. He also leaves several aunts and uncles to cherish his memory: Janice Devore of Byhalia, MS, JoAnn Johnson of Collierville, TN, Lori Brannon of Olive Branch, MS, Ann Goodwin of Rossville TN, Nancy Hoskins of Memphis, TN, Daniel Hoskins of Birmingham, AL, Johnny Hoskins of Olive Branch, MS, Oscar Hoskins of Bolivar, TN, Judy Parker of Memphis, TN, Sheila H. Scott of Memphis, TN, Betty Hoskins of Memphis, TN, Alma Hoskins of Memphis, TN, Karen H.
