James Atwood Eastburn, "Jim", age 88, of Elkton, MD passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 7, 2018 surrounded by his loving family. Born in Hockessin, DE on February 8, 1930, Jim was the son of the late Oliver and Eva (Hanna) Eastburn.

Jim was a commercial artist who owned and operated his family business, Eastburn Studio, Inc. with his wife, Rose. Although he was a talented artist and business owner, his passion in life was music.

He was a veteran of the Korean War and held the rank of Sergeant. Jim had a tremendous sense of humor and could put a smile on anyone's face. He was a cherished husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
