James "Eddie" Kling
Eddie went to his heavenly home on Thursday, October 28, 2021. He was always full of life and fun to be around. Eddie would have a joke lined up at any moment to lighten the mood of any situation. He enjoyed traveling with his family, taking trips to new places and just being with his family. Eddie was the one everyone was drawn to because he was easy to talk to and could always make you feel better, then pick on you, just to make you laugh, knowing that laughter is the best medicine. He was also a proud Veteran who served in the U.S. Air Force right out of college, then went on to become an Electrician for many years. Eddie was a loving father, husband, brother and friend to all who knew him and will be missed dearly.
He leaves behind his beautiful daughters, Cheyenne Kling and Jessica Raiford; "the last of the Mohicans" his siblings, Ernest Kling, Toni Ensign and Traci Quave; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Kling Sr.; siblings, Rebecca Kraft, Patricia Jumonville, John "Big John" Kling Jr., Christine Ciolino, Angela Perriloux and Terri Alvaro.
