APPLING, Ga. - Mr. John Daniel Eubank, age 99, husband of the late Mrs. Adelia Wilbanks Eubank, celebrating 61 years of marriage before her death, entered into rest Saturday, September 5, 2015 at his home. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, September 9, 2015 at Damascus Baptist Church with Dr. David Stockton officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. Mr. Eubank was an active member of Damascus Baptist Church of Appling, Georgia, attending since his birth in 1915. He served as Sunday School Teacher, Deacon, Trustee, and Treasurer. He was an active supporter of Youth Ministries and Missions. He served in the South Pacific during World War II. He was the founder and owner of Eubank Country Real Estate Company. Mr. Eubank was responsible for developing several of the rural subdivisions in the Appling Community. He always loved and enjoyed his land and encouraged his family to also. Mr. Eubank was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting and fishing and life in the country. After his retirement he took up gardening and would often bring bags of vegetables or fruit to friends at church on Sunday. He was frequently interviewed by reporters for various events including having voted in every election since the age of 18 up until the age of 98, his World War II service, growing and drying apples, and even reporting on a tornado that touched down in the Leah Community. He was a wonderful story teller and recorded many stories of growing up in Leah and his hunting and fishing experiences. These have been passed down so that generations to come will know of their heritage. He was a great provider, husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.
