of Little Rock, AR
June 24, 1945 - August 3, 2022
Eddie Ray Reddick, born the son of Hulon Reddick and Nadine Bishop Reddick, June 24, 1945,died on August 3, 2022. Ed was raised in Rector, Arkansas where he graduated from high school and met the love of his life, Jacqulene Shuemake Reddick. Jacqulene and Ed were married in 1964. Ed is predeceased by both of his beloved parents, as well as countless good dogs, who always seemed to like him more than the rest of us. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Jacqulene; son, Brian (Tiffany); three grandchildren, Connor, Grace, Sarah Reddick and countless friends and family.After graduating from Ouachita Baptist University, Ed took a job teaching middle school science in Tupelo, MS. After starting his family in Tupelo, Ed ultimately found his way back to Northeast Arkansas, where he lived and raised his son and excelled at medical sales. Later, he and Jacqulene moved to Little Rock to be closer to their grandchildren, where they attended countless dance recitals, sporting events, graduations, grandparents' days and other related activities. Eddie/Ed/Butch/Pop was present and active in all of our lives in many different ways. Moreover, his random acts of kindness for military families, underprivileged children or the local homeless population, mostly went unnoticed and unrecognized, per his request.Many men measure success in terms of monetary wealth. Ed measured his wealth in the relationships that he built, the friends that he made and the laughter that he created in those around him. Whether he was running marathons, fishing, hunting ducks, reading, attending Razorback sporting events or taking trips to the lake or 30A, Ed enjoyed life to the fullest and enriched all of those around him. His support to his family and friends was unwavering and nothing was as important to Ed than family time.A Visitation and Memorial service will be held on Monday, August 8, 2022 at Trinity United Methodist Church, 1101 North Mississippi, Little Rock. Visitation begins at 1:00 pm followed by the service at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, Out of the Woods Animal Rescue of Arkansas, or Trinity United Methodist Church.
I am so sorry for your loss. May your family memories be a comforting blessing.
My deepest sympathy to Jackie and family for your tremendous loss. "Butch" as I knew him back in school days was always very nice to everyone and sounds like he stayed that way throughout his life.God Bless You and treasure your wonderful memories.
Dear family and friends of Butch, He was so kind. I worked in a clinic that he visited each month back in 1987. I had a new grandchild that had to have special formula that was hard for us to afford. Butch made sure that sufficient amount of the special formula always arrived for us to use. I never forgot that kindness and knew his Mom and Dad as well as I was raised in Rector. I am sure he is happy in Heaven with his classmate Bill Shields who went ahead of him. God bless your family.
Jackie and family, so sad to hear about Butch’s passing. I have lots of memories of hunting and fishing with cousin Butch and uncle Hulon. Lots of prayers for you, Jackie and your family.
Butch was such an amazing friend to me in our young lives and an amazing adult until God opened his arms to welcome him home. To say that he left his thumbprint on many hearts is not enough to say. Jackie, Brian and his beloved family will have wonderful memories of Butch to carry in their hearts forever.
We start life across the street from each other playing cowboys and Indians. I have so many fond memories of Butch and his precious parents. Praying for peace and comfort of Jackie and his family. ❤️🙏
