JAMES EDWARD MAJORS
It is with deep sorrow and sadness that we mourn the passing of 63-year-old James Edward Majors of Gritney, Florida on Sunday, October 3, 2021.
Funeral services will be Wednesday, October 6, 2021, at Harris Chapel Church in Gritney, Florida at 11:00 am with Brother Michael Goodson officiating. The burial will follow soon after at the church cemetery where he will be laid to rest by his daddy, Obie & son, Jamie. Family and friends are invited to arrive at 10:00 am to say their final goodbyes.
Eddie is survived by his wife Candee of 44 years, his sons Shane & wife Tanya and Adam & girlfriend Katie, his mother Ruth Lee, grandchildren Chandler, Tucker, Gracie & Colt, sister-in-laws Skeeter & husband Alan Bunn, Gwen Mills & Julia McClain of Georgia and many loving cousins, nieces & nephews.
As a telephone contractor, Eddie spent the majority of his years traveling around the US for work to provide for his family. Health issues forced him into early retirement in 2016. Looking back, we realize this was a blessing in disguise because it allowed him to spend his last years at home with his family.
In the last 3 years or so, he and Candee were able to make up for lost time and got to travel around selling some of the best pickles you can find at markets and festivals which kept them busy but also allowed them to enjoy life.
The same hobbies he was able to teach his own sons as they were growing up, he now had the time to teach his grandchildren which they will forever be grateful for. He was hunting with Chandler when he killed his first buck which is a memory Chandler will always hold close to his heart. He taught Tucker how to plant a garden of potatoes, peas, watermelons, and cucumbers and was there to help him gather everything the deer didn’t get to first. He teamed up with Gracie to aggravate her brothers at any given time and would act innocent when MawMaw would get involved. He always made sure to let Colt drive the tractor when he was discing up a place to plant.
With every day that passed, Pappy was quick to remind us how important we were to him. He wanted nothing more than for us to love each other and stick by each other through the hard times. We are so blessed that his grandchildren were able to know their Pappy and have such a tight bond with him even if it was only for a little while. We are all going to miss him more than words could ever describe.
A very special thanks to Regina with respiratory and the nursing staff Ella, Tara, Kay, & Zaneta for being so good to Pappy during the time he was in your care. You each hold a special place in our hearts.
