Richard 'Dick' Eddy, 94, Columbus

Richard Ward “Dick” Eddy, 94, Columbus, died Tuesday June 11, 2013, at Columbus Regional Hospital.

Dick was born Sept. 21, 1918, in Lawrence, Kansas. He was the son of Dick Leander Eddy and Gertrude (Russ) Eddy. They preceded him in death.

Dick was raised in Apopka, Fla., and moved to Chicago to begin his 40-year career with the YMCA. While there, he met Virginia Varner and they married in May 1942, just prior to Dick being shipped out to serve in the U.S. Navy. After WWII, he resumed his career with the YMCA, serving in Flint and Detroit, Mich., and Racine, Wisc. Dick was a graduate of George Williams College in Chicago. During his retirement, he was a resident of Crystal Falls, Mich., Brown County, and most recently, Columbus. Dick was a member of Christiansburg United Methodist Church and the American Legion.

A funeral service will be conducted Saturday June 15 at 11 a.m. at Bond-Mitchell Funeral Home in Nashville with the Rev. Richard A. Eddy officiating. Burial will follow in Christiansburg Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Saturday at 10 a.m. until the service. A reception will follow the burial at Christiansburg United Methodist Church.

Survivors include his daughter, Elizabeth Greer of Columbus; and son, Richard (Karen) Eddy of Elk Grove, Calif.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 57 years, Virginia Eddy, on Oct. 18, 1999; two brothers and one sister.
