Army Emblem

Tommy Gerald Eddy, a native of Maud, OK and a longtime resident of Franklin, passed away at the age of 88 on March 6, 2018, at his home with his family at his side.

Tom was born on February 11, 1930, one of six children and only son of the late Thomas Jefferson Eddy and the late Avo Longley Eddy. Tom was a wonderful husband and father, as well as a simple, caring, and generous man. He was always willing to help those in need and was always teaching life lessons to his family. He had a talent for woodworking, gardening, and fixing things. He was a veteran of the United States Army having served during the Korean War. A Geologist by profession, in 1962 Tom began a successful career with Cabot at the Machinery Division Laboratory and transferred to the Pampa Technical Service a year later. In 1966 he transferred again, this time to Louisiana at the Canal Plant, where he worked as Laboratory Supervisor and was promoted one year later to Laboratory Superintendent. He retired on March 1, 1995 after 32 years of dedicated service. He will be deeply missed.

Those he leaves to cherish his memory include his wife of 43 years, Meryln Landry Eddy; his children, Andrea Eddy Upshaw and her husband Greg, Craig Barrilleaux and his wife Becky, Kirk Barrilleaux and his wife Adella; Cyndi Hebert and her husband Dwayne, Kathryn Barrilleaux, Karen Aucoin and her husband Jody, and JoNell Lynd; grandchildren, Avery Elizabeth Upshaw, Karli Jane Upshaw, Keely Theriot, Kristen Wagnon, Jenny Clements, Michelle Barrilleaux, Ethan Barrilleaux, Luke Gibson, Ashlee LeBlanc, Alex Aucoin, Phillip Brown, Paul Brown, Sara Lynd, and Melissa Phifer; ten great grandchildren, Alexa Theriot, Camille Theriot, Kamryn Theriot, Payton Wagnon, Brennan Clements, Ella Clements, Lily Clements, Demi Dion, Aubree LeBlanc and Easton LeBlanc.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his five sisters, Norvelle, Margaret, Dean, Wilma and Wanda; daughter, Annette Brown; and great grandson, Cohen LeBlanc.

A gathering of family and friends will be held at Ibert's Mortuary in Franklin on Thursday, March 8, beginning at 10:00 a.m., with funeral services at 11:00 a.m. Following he will be laid to rest in Beau Pré Cemetery. Serving as pallbearers will be Greg Upshaw, Kirk Barrilleaux, Craig Barrilleaux, Jody Aucoin, Dwayne Hebert, Ethan Barrilleaux, Alex Aucoin, and Luke Gibson.

The family would like to thank Dr. Stephen McPherson and staff, Journey Hospice, and especially his caregivers, Sloan, Delores, Sarah, Tina, and Debbie, for taking care of Tom in his final days. They would also like to thank Dr. Bill and Elaine Karam, Sandy McClelland, Casey and Tammy Cunningham for the many acts of kindness.
