Obituary

James L. Eubanks ("Jim"), age 78, of Newark, DE passed away peacefully on August 2, 2018. Born December 25, 1939, Jim was the son of the late, John and Hilda (Nickle) Eubanks.

Jim was born and raised in Newark, DE and was a graduate of Newark High School. He would meet with his fellow Newark High Grads once a month to have lunch and were referred to as the "Lunch Bunch". As a child, he traveled with the University of Delaware's football team and was known as their unofficial mascot, supporting them at all of their games. Jim was an avid fan of all of the University's sports teams and was a season ticket holder so that he was able to cheer them on all year long. His love for sports carried over into the National League as well; cheering for the Phillies, Eagles and most recently the Sixers.

Jim had an outstanding sense of humor and enjoyed bringing laughter to those around him. He never met a stranger and was kind to everyone. He enjoyed playing softball and bowling. His greatest joy however, was his family. He cherished his time spent with them.

Jim is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Rosemary Eubanks of Newark, DE; son, Ethan Eubanks and his wife, Liz of Brooklyn, NY; daughter, Jennifer Greenhut of Middletown, CT and his grandchildren: Samantha and Benjamin Greenhut. He was preceded in death by his beloved Corgi, Robert.

A celebration of Jim's life will be held at 12PM on August 17, 2018 at R.T. Foard & Jones Funeral Home, 122 W. Main St., Newark, DE 19711, where family and friends may visit beginning at 11AM.
