HOOPERSVILLE — Dwayne Ed­die Sim­mons, 47, of Hoopersville, passed away sud­denly at his home on Aug. 27, 2016.

Born Dec. 17, 1968, he was the son of Cur­tis and Pa­tri­cia Sim­mons. Ed­die al­ways loved the wa­ter, be­com­ing a com­mer­cial fish­er­man aboard his ves­sel the “Proud Pup.” On March 4, 1989, Ed­die mar­ried his child­hood best friend, Bobbie Jo. Ed­die and Bobbie were for­ever to­gether, work­ing side by side.

The peace and pas­sion he found in hunt­ing was some­thing he shared with his wife and then daugh­ters. Ev­ery­one who knew Ed­die knew that he lived for his three girls. Ed­die was noth­ing short of a hero and best friend to his wife and daugh­ters. His friends found him to be an hon­est, hard-work­ing, self­less fam­ily man, who was com­pas­sion­ate to all those around him.

Ed­die is sur­vived by his wife; daugh­ters Jes­sica and hus­band Chris Brown, Ashley

and fi­ancé Ryan Mitchell, and youngest daugh­ter Sa­man­tha. In ad­di­tion, Ed­die was a proud Pop-pop to grand­son, Ju­nior Brown. Ed­die talked most about Ju­nior be­ing his hunt­ing buddy and be­ing on the boat to­gether. The love be­tween Ed­die and his lab, Detroit, showed what a strong bond they had.

In ad­di­tion to his wife, daugh­ters, and grand­son, Ed­die is sur­vived by his lov­ing and sup­port­ive par­ents Cur­tis and Pa­tri­cia; close sis­ter Hen­nie and hus­band Joe Hay­den; grand­par­ents Ed­win and Eva Jane Sim­mons; Aunt Donna Lovell; his in­laws Dale and Min­nie Insley along with nu­mer­ous nieces, neph­ews, cousins and many friends.

A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held at 4 p.m. Satur­day, Sept. 3 at New­comb and Collins Fu­neral Home, with Pas­tor Mark Far­nell of­fi­ci­at­ing. The fam­ily will re­ceive friends the hour prior to the ser­vice.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions can be made to the Ed­die Sim­mons Me­mo­rial Fund at 1880 Bank, P.O. Box 550, Cam­bridge, MD 21613, with pro­ceeds go­ing to his three daugh­ters.
