Clarence Frederick (Fred) Eheart, age 59, left us unexpectedly on April 9, 2020. Born May 29, 1960 in Alexandria, Virginia. He was the son of the late Wallace Wayne Eheart, Sr. and Barbara J. Branham.
Fred served in the United States Navy prior to beginning his career in construction, most recently working for Haven Construction. He was extremely talented in his field and took great pride in his work.
Fred loved fishing, time with his dogs, cookouts and most importantly spending time with his family and friends. He brightened the lives of many children by dressing up as one of Santa’s helpers every year. This act alone brought him great joy.
He leaves to cherish his memory the love of his life, Phyllis Lamb; his beautiful daughters, Amanda Catherine Eheart and Ashley Carolyn Eheart; a son, Austin Corey Eheart; three very special young men in his life, Derek Lamb (Angela), Dustin Lamb (Shannon), Dexter Lamb (Ashley), who he loved as though they were his sons.
He is also survived by his stepfather, J. Ronald Branham “Pop”, whom he highly respected; stepmother, Dale Eheart; brother Wallace Wayne Eheart, II; sister, JoGina Ann Eheart; half-brothers, Brooks Eheart and Jeffrey Allen Kidd, six grandchildren, three nieces and two nephews.
He had a very special aunt, Wanda Tonker, whom he referred to as a mom; two cousins he considered sisters; Jamie M. Houchens and Tamara J. Doublestein. The love they had for him was unwavering and unconditional.
He was preceded in death by a brother, Michael Julius Eheart.
Fred will be remembered as being a hard worker, a gentle soul, who was kind-hearted and would do anything for anyone. He will truly be missed.
