August 11, 1947 - May 7, 2020
Eddie Lee Lakey was born August 11, 1947 and passed away on May 7, 2020. Eddie was one of six brothers who grew up in and with the city of Houston living the history of the city; adding colorful true stories and mischievous adventures to the history with his brothers and cousins… especially his brother, Danny Lakey. Eddie was a loving son and brother exhibiting the authenticity and loyalty that would lead him to be a hardworking, honest “word is his bond” man. Eddie was passionate for God and family. His greatest joys in life were knowing Jesus personally (not religiously), being a father and loving his grandchildren. Those joys he passionately enjoyed alongside his best friend and wife of 45 years, Sharron, whom he loved and treasured. Eddie was the picture of someone who walked in authentic faith; he was greatly respected by family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers for his integrity and ability to show kindness to all. He was also a bulldog… his passion for justice led him to stand up when many others stood down. Eddie was strong and determined, but deeply caring, recognizing the grace he received from God was worth sharing with everyone. Eddie’s 40 plus year battle with skin cancer turned to a new 13 month battle in 2019 when his skin cancer moved internal. The doctors were amazed as up until the last two weeks of his life, Eddie was himself… going around loving on others, quietly showing how he treasured the life God had blessed him with. Eddie is now in the presence of his King, which is right where he wanted to be… seeing Jesus face to face. Eddie was preceded in death by his father, Ernest Leroy Lakey; his mother, Jessie Ellen Lakey; his brothers Fred Davis, Jimmy Lakey, Danny Lakey; sister in-law Mary Lakey. Eddie is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Sharron Lakey; children Travis Lakey, Shane and Rebecca Lakey, Shannon and Chris Laidlaw; grandchildren Christina, Reagan, Faith, Elyse, Jovi, Kenna, Kara and Daniel; his uncle Jack Lakey; brothers and their spouses Benny and Susan Davis, Tommy Lakey, Geri Lakey; cousins, Delmar Forster, Roy Forster, Kathy Martin, and Rosemary Gilbert; a host of nieces and nephews; and his brother and sisters in law, whom he loved very much. A memorial service celebrating the life and faithful legacy of Eddie Lee Lakey will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, July 11, 2020 at The Crossing Church, 6265 Shadow Bend Pl. The Woodlands, TX 77381. Those wishing to express condolences and kindness to Eddie’s family via flowers and gifts are humbly asked to send them to The Crossing Church.
